Re: RAM upgrade to Lenovo G500

Hi Bhargavg,

                           

Welcome to Lenovo Community!

                                                     

As per the query we understood that you are looking for a up gradation of RAM to your Lenovo G500 laptop.

 

As per the specification of this model its supports upto 16 GB DDR 3 1600Mhz. As you have shared few RAM I would like to inform all the RAMs are supported by the system.

 

Please ensure that the current RAM has 1600Mhz.As the RAM which you have listed is of 1600Mhz.

 

However I would also like to inform to you to visit the service centre for further details.

 

Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I’m sure they will be a great help.

 

Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

        

Best regards,

Re: RAM upgrade to Lenovo G500

Hi Ashwin,

 

Thanks for your reply, I'm having G500/59-370358 model laptop. I have 2 quick questions.

 

  1. Are you sure that it is upgradable to 16GB? because is some of the sites it is mentioned as max 8GB RAM
  2. Is the RAM that is preinstalled is 1600MHz? Can I use the RAM modules that I've mentioned above?

Good, don't make a mistake buying DDR 1600 it wont work. You need DD3L 1600. carfully check specifications of the ram you're buying.

Re: RAM upgrade to Lenovo G500

Not DDR3 1600mhz but DDR3L 1600mhz! Lenovo can't write specifications correctly! Lots of people buy wrong RAMS due to this! carefull. + adding the ram don't make ur machine much faster as you expect. Maybe a few precent.
