Lenovo G580 Ram Upgrade

I have a G580 with 2 sticks of 4gb (8gb total) currently. I bought these hoping they would work:

However, when I install them I only get a black screen with the camera light lit up. Is this ram incompatible? I thought this laptop was able to handle 16gb of ram.

Re: Lenovo G580 Ram Upgrade

Machine spec:

16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3*, non-parity,
dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets

 

Your ORDERED Amazon memory is not clocking down nor liked by your BIOS.

Crucial.com shows this: two 8GB-sticks which is your spec.

CT3361441
  • DDR3 PC3-12800 • CL=11 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR3-1600 • 1.35V • 1024Meg x 64 •

 You may not find these specs(for sale) on Amazon, but are on crucial.com .

Crucial.com and crucial resellers sell the same stick under different part numbers.

Crucial.com is showing  pc3-12800 and pc3-14900 (your Amazon ordered sticks) compatible.
