 Hi tphanelly , 



Welcome to the Community Forums.


Ideally it would be best if we use the machine number to verify the details.

It would be on the label or check it here


A usual G50-80 core with i5-5200U would have a max RAM 16 GB . 

2 separate location/ slot for a dual channel model (page 41) .

Best to physically check it on your pc on the bottom after removing the base cover .


The G50 series would have a standard memory (page 28) of :  DDR3L, SODIMM × 1 / SODIMM × 2 (max 8 GB / 16 GB) depending on the machine number . 


As that would be the case after checking the standard product specification on the G50 series:

N2830 / N3530 models: 8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket, system automatically clocks down for 1333MHz DDR3 memory controller


Other models: 16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets ( i5-5200U are one of it).


Update us how it is for the memory slots.
