I have the Lenovo G500 Model 20236 and I would like to upgrade its RAM and Hard disk.
I used CPU-Z to find out which RAM I have and found 2 GB and 4 GB with 800 MHz.
If I kept the 4 GB and installed new 8 GB
Would both work fine together?
What would a good SSD to install instead of my old HHD?

Welcome to the Community Forums.
As per general specification for the RAM :
Up to 16GB DDR3- 1600Mhz(Support Dual Channel) [2 SODIMM slots (1x2GB/2x2GB/1x4GB/1x2GB+1x4GB
So a combination of 4GB + 8 GB DDR3L(low voltage)-1600MHz should work with no issue expected.
Since SSD was not offered at the time G500 was marketed, there is no specific SSD suggested by OEM so instead you may check with other resellers for an option like crucial using an adapter. Check for return options just in case.
Hope this helps answer your query.
