Can I upgrade my B590 Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 3761 memory to 16G?

2021-04-18, 16:47 PM

Hi,

I'm a new member.  Glad to be here!

I would like to know if I can upgrade my B590 Laptop (Lenovo) - Type 3761 memory from  4G to 16G. 

If the answer is Yes, as I assume, what Type / Part # RAM would I need?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Dave

Hello Db King,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

According to the specification sheet, the maximum memory of B590 is 8GB. This thread might help you with regards to the memory upgrade of B590.

 

You may also check the parts look up for a compatible OEM memory to your machine and get in touch with the Lenovo Encompass for pricing and parts availability in your region.

 

I hope you might find this useful.

 

Regards.

Hi Dex_Lenovo,

 

Thank you for the reply.  I am asking about a 16GB maximum because my B590's Lenovo Solutions Center's Memory Snapshot (see attached pic) lists the maximum supported memory as 16GB, not 8GB as the spec sheet states.  I know that sometimes the original spec sheet lists a certain capacity and is not updated when a new capacity is available as a model develops whereas OEM diagnostic tools may list an updated capacity.  So, is the Spec sheet wrong or is the Lenovo Solution Center's Memory Snapshot info incorrect?

 

Thank you in advance

DB King

Hi Db King,

 

Technically, the CPU may support 16GB but RAM controllers may limit recognition to 8GB at some BIOS version, however, there are those that claims 16Gb to work for them.

 

Similar in a discussion here.
