Hi Sezer1907,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Max ram offered is 8GB.



Others did manage 16GB but do check this discussion.


Fellow Zhindetz was successfull with 2 pieces of KINGSTON KVR16S11/8 DDR3 (PC3-12800 CL11 1.5V) but failed with "CRUCIAL CT102464BF160B DDR3L 8Гб 1600, 204 pin SO-DIMM (Crucial is 1.35V (which is low voltage - letter "L" in DDR3L)


Not clear why others failed since there did not mention the voltage used so it may be a factor to consider only 5V ram to use else, finding a compatible ram stick.


I hope this helps answer your query.

I was successful with Micron Memory in DDR3L in a matched pair of 4gb sticks. I did try to go above the 8gb but the machine would not boot past the initial post messages, said incompatible parts inserted.

8gb of main memory in a notebook computer should be more than enough to run Windows 7, 8 or even 10.

Good luck.
