G510 G510s maximum ram memory

2014-04-30, 16:17 PM

I've reviewed the user guide and hardware guide and other than the type of ram and how many slots, I can't find any reference to the max the G510 and G510s will take.

 

Can anyone help or even better, point me to the specs/reference that tells?

 

BTW, crucial.com says 16G max.

 

Thanks,

 

Rich

I may be wrong but can't imagine why or even how they'd limit the max ram in a G510 in another country so they were probably wrong.

i don't know... the technical information given on the website states:

Up to 8GB PC3-12800 DDR3 SDRAM 1600 MHz

 

for both the G series and the Z series. i was hoping it was expandable as well - for future expansion if need be.

Which website, exact url, are you referring to? Did you look at the link of the brochure on it in the first reply to my query? That's the machine's info, so don't know where you're getting yours. But that's all I can say on it, good luck.

hi. both the canadian and us websites list "up to 8GB RAM" in the technical specs section of the model page. if i found out why it is so i will post back. could it be they only have 1 memory slot?

crucial.com website says 16G for both G510 and G610s. Look under Lenovo, "Essential/Value Line", then scroll down for the G510 and s. I trust them and the brochure.

It also says it has 2 slots.

hi again. so i just talked to someone at lenovo because i too would very much like the g and z series to be expandable to 16 GB. he told me that for both canada and the states they use the same motherboards and they are rated for 8GB. he said there is nothing stopping you  from putting in 8GB cards but that the system may or may not recognize or handle it.  i don't know enough about  motherboards and configurations so for me its an 8GB computer. did you buy it from lenovo? may you can call for technical assistance. i spoke to the sales dept. now i have to decide which computer to buy! good luck!

 

edit  - i went to the crucial site and chatted with somone but she wanted me to scan the computer to look into the results. not possible since i haven't actually bought the computer yet. buti'm curious if you scanned yours and what the result was? couldn't find the Z510 in the list. but you're right it does list the G510 as 16GB.
