Lenovo G570 RAM upgrade

Hi,

 

My Lenovo G570 (Model no : 20079) has a 2 GB + 1 GB 1333Mhz DDR3 RAMs in its slots now. I am planning to take off the 1 GB stick and replace it with a Corsair 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM to get an effective RAM of 10 GB.

 

However, on checking various websites which lists G570, it is shown that maximum RAM capacity is 8GB, though the processor supports upto 16GB.

 

I would like to get a clarification on this. Is it possible to upgrade it to >8GB? If not, why this difference between the max capacity of system and the proc?

Hi Arjun,

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

I’m sorry to inform you that the G570 Laptop supports only up to 8Gb of RAM and not more than that.

 

Do post us back for further queries.

Re: Lenovo G570 RAM upgrade

Can I use that supported 8GB as one single stick or one slot supports only max of 4GB?

Re: Lenovo G570 RAM upgrade

Care to explain why? Just curious. Because the processor architecture does support > 8GB. Is it the on board memory controller? heat factor?

Hi Arjun,

 

This is set according to the Mother and Controller configurations which varies with the series of Laptops and this information is not provided online as this comes under the Lenovo Confidential Policies.

Hi Abdul,

  

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!

 

Even if more memory is installed in the computer it may display the installed and usable memory only after changing the Virtual/Paging settings but only use only upto 8GB of memory.

 

Do post us back for further queries.

 

Best Regards
