Lenovo G50 80 RAM Upgrade

Does this laptop supports 1x4GB and 1x8GB RAM,

 

I have 1 4GB RAM and i'm adding 1x8GB RAM of Samsung made, which is compatible as per the parts listed in my devices list.

Re: Lenovo G50 80 RAM Upgrade

Best bet is to match the listings in the parts list for the specified memory. This is the DDR information... and the information off the existing memory.

As to the size, if it is similar to the ones in the parts listing it should work just fine.

Are you adding this to the existing memory or replacing it?

I'm adding it to the existing 4GB, It won't pass booting, it says preparing repair.  and it goes on continue looping.

 

Note: 8GB alone is working fine, does different Make matters in this???

The notebook may not work with different types, sizes, speeds of memory.... Best bet is to buy memory in matching pairs, thus you avoid any "compatibility" issues between them.

Also - make sure you have a "64bit OS" installed before you move on. A 32bit OS will not be able to use any memory above about 3.8gb.

Thanks for the reply

This is my RAM Configuration:

8 GB RAM: 8GB PC3L-12800 DDR3L 1.35V 1600 204-Pin SoDimm Laptop Memory Module M471b1g73bh0-yk0

4GB RAM: RAMAXEL 1rx8 1.35v Pc3l-12800s-11-13-B4 Hf Rmt3170mn68f9f-1600 

 

aren't these two RAM's work together???

I'm using Win 10 Pro 64. So upgrading should work.

Samsung memory is not the culprit, it is most likely the RAMAXEL not wanting to work with Samsung.

I see more issues with RAMAXEL in "compatibility" scenarios and it seems that it needs to be a single stick only use module even on other brands of computers.
