Lenovo G40-30 RAM SLOT

2014-08-03, 7:29 AM

I've bought my Laptop Lenovo G40-30 this last July 27,2014 and I really want to upgrade it's ram, because it has only 2gb of ram installed. When I open the Lenovo Solutions Center, it says that I have a 2 ram slots and a maximum of 8gb of ram. So that's why I've bought an additional 4GB of ram for me to have 6gb of ram. But I'm shocked when i checked the ram slots, it only has a 1 ram slot. Does this laptop really has ony 1 ram slot? Or is it a factory defect and needs to swap for new same unit which supports 2 ram slots.. Thank you for your help and suggestions. God Bless you all.

Solved! See the solution

elijah47,

   I belive you have the budget based version of the G40-30 as I had the exact same situation with my G570, what you can do is remove the 2Gb ram stick and install the 4gb ram stick instead, but if you want to upgrade to 8.0Gb ram what you will have to do is get a 8GB Kit (1X8) which should be PC3-10600 DDR3L SDRAM 1333MHz, 1600MHz whill also do as the ram will underclock, make sure its DDR3L (1.35V)

Lets make 2015 the year of the #DO

सर जब हमने इसको पर्चेस किया था तब हमको रीलाईस स्टोर मे हम को बताया था की इसमे २ Ram Slots हमने आप को पहले भी बताया ही की इसमे ऐक ही  Ram slots सर, plase हमको बताये की हम क्या कर, मै लैपटॉप को लेकर सर्विस सेंटर भी गया था लेकिन वहां पर भी कोई solustion नहीं निकला 

हमको कम - से कम 4GB Ram चाहिए अगर यह फक्ट्री डिफेक्ट है तो प्लीज हमारा लैपटॉप change कर दे, Otherwise हमको बताये हम क्या करे

                                                                                                                                                                                                      थैंकक्यू
