G500 Memory

I recently purchased the Lenovo G500 model 59399508, with the 1TB HDD and 4GB RAM. I would like to upgrade the RAM.  What part number of memory do I need, and can I just purchase an additional 4GB RAM stick to upgrade this laptop to 8GB, leaving the original 4GB in place? What brand, speed, etc. do I need to work best in this model? Thank you

Re: G500 Memory

hi cah14522,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

This link shows a G500 Configuration 

http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/Lenovo-3000-and-Essential/G500-Memory/m-p/1515162

 

Where it shows the Memory Combinations you could use

G500 Supports Dual Channel

This boost the memory performance,

   But both Cards should be idenical interms of Speed and Frequency

If you'll planning to use the stock 4GB then it would be a DDR3-1600Mhz you'll need to buy another 4GB DDR3-1600Mhz but you'll end up with an 8GB RAM

 

If you want to max out the capacity which is 16GB youll need to get 2 8GBs DDR3-1600Mhz

 

Regards

Solid Cruver

Re: G500 Memory

Thank you for the information.  Is there a particular brand, part number, etc. that you could recommend - assuming I just want to add another 4GB memory to the existing one?
