Which memory type can i upgrade for a Lenovo G550 memory specs

2017-12-25, 13:11 PM

I have a Lenovo G550 2.2 Ghz with 250 gb hdd. Now i have a ram of 2gb 8500s but i want to upgrade to bigger ram.

do you know if a 4gb ddr3 10600 ram works with the laptop? And also will it be complied with the 2gb ram as well so i can have in total 6gb ram? I want to make it faster to open some programs like photoshop and also to reduce the boot time.


thank you

Hi Niklas5,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Official RAM specification here:

  • DDR3, 800/1066MHz support, 2x SODIMM, up to 8 GB Max 

Usually, it would underclock to the slower RAM if the chipset accommodates the 10600.

Since it is a spare it would be worth to fit and mix it.


Update us how it goes for you.
