Windows 7: Question about RAMs

31 Dec 2013   #31

Windows 8

Some people told me that 2x8 RAM should work since the laptop has 2 slots, and the reason why they said it was expandable up to 8 gb might be because it already has 4gb in one slot and so if adding 4gb on the other it is 8gb.

Having two slots does not mean it will take 8GB RAM sticks, it would be rare. I have a Dell laptop that will only accept 1GB stick, or a total of 2GB.
You have the computer, check the manual.

Thank you. Would any RAM with 204 pin be ok or would I have to get the exact same brand as well?
