RAM that is Compatible with the Lenovo G50-80 Laptop

Help please...I bought a Lenovo G50-80 laptop that came with 4GB of RAM. I want to add another 4GB.  In the task manager, under the memory tab, it says that I have DDR3 memory.  The specs however say that the computer ustilizes DDR3L memory. 

 

Does anyone know what type of RAM I should buy for this laptop?

Hi Callie33021 , 

 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

If you have machine number (located on the sticker below) included we can check specific ram for your model. 

 

General Hardware RAM Specs :

 

N2830 / N3530 models: 8GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, one 204-pin SO-DIMM socket, system automatically clocks down for 1333MHz DDR3 memory controller

 

Other models: 16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets

 

Get a RAM with this specification : 4 GB PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L

So that you be assured yourself , you check it directly by opening the ram cover  and check current available slot and the current one on it. 

 

As per basic RAM upgrade rule , best that you match same capacity and specs as what you currently have.

Check on the label of the current RAM inside (most likely DDR3L ) thus avoiding non detection and incompatibilities. Click here for your manual (page 40) . 

 

 

Hope this helped you on your upgrade.

 

 

Regards

Re: RAM that is Compatible with the Lenovo G50-80 Laptop

My model is not listed when I click on the link. I bought it in October at a Nest Buy store, and it was a new model that came with Win 10 pre-installed.  The model number on the box and on Best Buy paperwork is as follows: 80L000H2US.  It is NOT a touchscreen model.

 

One more piece of information...the RAM label on the module that came with the laptop has the following numbers:

 

RAMAXEL 100 280 507 152 52 CSU 4GB HF PC3L 8S5M30G75129R1AA56FA6V5 RMT3170MN68F9F-1600.

Hi Callie33021 , 

 

Greetings. 

 

For the Model 80L000H2US G50-80 non touch, (based on partslookup)

 

You can match the same Part number : 11202081 M471B5173DB0-YK0 25nm 4GB DDR3L 1600 

To may call Lenovo spare parts department  to check on pricing and availability.

You may also get different brands for as long as you have the same specs 4GB DDR3L 1600 similar to this.

 

 

Your processor Intel® Core™ i3-4030U Processor (3M Cache, 1.90 GHz) can support 16GB max supporting RAM DDR3L 1333/1600, LPDDR3 1333/1600

 

The recommended max 8GB from manufacturer is for best performance and compatibility to the systemboard. 

 

Thanks for the details , this match similar to the one installed (brands not required to be the same ) would allow your pc to perform faster with dual channeling by the motherboard too. 

 

Hope this helped you on your upgrade.

 

 

Regards

Re: RAM that is Compatible with the Lenovo G50-80 Laptop

I was just chatting with the people at Crucial and they are telling me that if I buy one 4GB Crucial module of DDR3L-1600 and pair it with the RAMAXEL 4GB pre-installed module that it might not work even though the specs are the same.  Why is that?  My husband is at the point now where he is saying that maybe we should just live with the 4GM and not upgrade.  It seems like it's more trouble than it's worth.

Hi Callie33021 , 

 

 

Sorry that retailers may confuse you on the purchase. 

One sure thing about a memory upgrade is to get it from the manufacturer. 

They can get you exactly what you need (Lenovo spare parts).

 

Using part number : 11202081 M471B5173DB0-YK0 25nm 4GB DDR3L 1600 

 

 

You can give them a try , if it did not work then you can simply return it.

 

You can also check it with any local computer repair shops/ tech guy you trust.

They usually have spare RAM to test too.

 

See how that works for you and your husband specially if you need performance speed on this pc.

 

 

Regards
