lenovo g70-80 only showing 8 gigs memory when 12 gigs installed???

Ok so not sure what has changed my laptop used to show 12 or 16 gigs memory when I had that much installed. 


I downgraded to 8 gigs to help wife's laptop and just today reuped the ddr3 to 12 gigs.... That being said windows 10 is only showing 8 gigs. This is on a 17" lenovo G70-80 I3.


Any info on this would be greatly appreciated!

Hi rgeier,




Would you have the part number and specification of the added RAM?


General specification (page27) for RAM for this model shows:

DDR3L-1600MHz 16 GB SODIMM × 2


You can try checking if the RAM is detected in the BIOS, likewise, use only the new ram on each slot to check if it works as expected (maybe just not making a good contact on the slots).


Update us how it goes.
