Lenovo G50-80 RAM upgrade from 1 x 4 GB to 2 x 4 GB

I bought a new G50 (1EIN) series laptop with inbuilt 4 GB RAM.

 

When I went to local Lenovo support for RAM upgrade they told me that my laptop will not support more than 6 GB of RAM. Even if we install a RAM more then 2 GB, the usable memory will be limited to 6 GB only.

 

Pleas verify because the retailer who sold me this laptop was ready to upgrade my RAM upto 12 GB but I wanted to get my RAM installed with Lenovo officials.

Hi Sulabh,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Community!

 

The G50-80 has two memory slots.  Each slot can support up to a 8 GB module for a total of 16 GBs.

 

For additional specifications please see page #26 of the G50-80's Hardware Maintenance Manual which can be found at the link below......

Hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.

 

Regards,

Shashi Kumar

Hi,

 

Same description was given on specifications as well but my concern here is your local lenovo support vendor is not agree.

He is saying usable memory will be limited to 6GB only.

Now in such scenerio how can I get my RAM upgraded.

 

Please suggest how much a new 4GB RAM will cost.

Re: Lenovo G50-80 RAM upgrade from 1 x 4 GB to 2 x 4 GB

Hi Sulabh,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Forums.

 

Thanks for the quick response. You can look into HMM as they list acceptable memory modules with specifications for each that can be used to compare or select from other sources.

 

https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_g_z_50_series_hmm.pdf (see page 80)

 

I would suggest downloading the manual, reading the section on memory modules and reviewing your parts list information.  Also - I would suggest purchasing a matching pair of modules that would provide your desired amount of memory.  IE - 2 x 8 GB KIT that would provide 16 GB of useable memory.

 

Lastly - if you are going beyond 4 GB of memory you will need to upgrade your operating system (OS) to a 64bit version.  Windows 7, 8 and 10 are all available in 64bit

 

Regards,

Shashi Kumar
