    Okay, Your chipset (HM65) does support up to 16GB of RAM from what I can gather from various sources all saying the same thing. I couldn't find this Info. at Intel or I wasn't looking hard enough. Also, your CPU supports up to 16GB of RAM. However! Your motherboard only supports up to 8GB according to the pc-specs website.Toshiba PEQAA - Best Compatible Toshiba PEQAA Mobo

    I'm still not fully satisfied with the results of my research and everything I have found is subjective. Especially when Crucial says again this motherboard only supports up to 8GB of RAM. Dynabook-Toshiba Toshiba PEQAA | Memory RAM & SSD Upgrades | Crucial.com

    I don't know where pc-specs gets their data or for that matter the other websites out there with this same data.

    If it were me I'd try 16GB and see what happens. LOL! If you see 16GB addressed in the OS then you know the laptop can use 16GB.

    BTW- Your signature image reminds me of the 1990s American snack called Dunkaroos. LOL

    i wont mark this as solved yet, i'll get the 16GB of RAM in 2 modules so if it does max out at 8GB i can still use at least one module in my now 4GB machine so thats a definite upgrade whatever way you like at it.

    as soon as i do it hopefully this week i'll certainly post an update on result........

    by the way the Ram installed is DDR3 which is not real common from what i've found, the DDR3L RAM is supposed to be dual voltage for 1.35V - 1.5V, 1.5 is what is in the computer now, so can anyone tell me if this is compatible ie DDR3 - DDR3L interchangeable ??

    - - - Updated - - -

    ok have been experimenting....

    left DDR3 RAM in slot 1 (original 4GB)

    installed DDR3L RAM in slot 3 (spare RAM from another upgrade 4GB)

    DRAM FREQUENCY remained at original RAM (DDR3) spec, no added advantage as far as FREQUENCY is concerned but does show 8GB of RAM total.

    this will do me as i recycled a spare RAM module i had laying around and this computer is plugged into TV for pure viewing purposes, this machine also has a MEDIA CENTRE in it so all is good, i'll post the differences for others to scrutinise and maybe comment on if desired, compare to post #1.

    Yeah, the RAM will clock down to the slowest and use that.

    yeah it did which is still cool cause its much fasterer than what it was and i'm pretty happy about that, the best part is i recycled a RAM that otherwise would have sat on the shelf until i eventually tossed it.

    was a good compromise.

    thanks for all your effort and research, you're amazing. will mark as solved now.
