Lenovo G50-80 RAM upgrade

2016-03-07, 14:12 PM

Hello,

 

i have the lenovo G50-80 80E502UFNX and i wanted to upgrade my RAM.

I have purchased a Corsair Valueselect DDR3 4 GB 1600MHZ  CMSO04GX3M1A1600C11 but is is not recognized. 

Is it not compatible? every aspect matches the specs of my notebook? or do i need to activate the memory slot or something?

 

Kind regards

Solved! See the solution

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !

 

According to the hardware specification of the G50-80, your model requires DDR3L memory which is 1.35 volts.  The Corsair Value memory you listed is DDR3 memory that uses 1.5 volts.  That would explain why the new memory will not work.  This is what you will need....

 

PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L

 

The specifications for the memory you purchased.....

I had listed the specifications for the required memory in my previous posting......

 

PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L

 

Here are a couple of on-line retailers and examples of what they have available for your model....
