2019-10-28, 11:19 AM

I purchased Lenovo C340 model laptop it has only 8GB of memory but I want to upgrade it to 16GB so I need detail of how many RAM slot it has and how many GB RAM I have to buy to upgrade to 16 GB.

 

Suppose  if it has 4 slot will buy two 4gb or only 2 slot will buy two 8gb etc..

 

Kindly conform this as soon as possible.

 

Regards

Leo Alexander A

I wish I could have read your message before buying a 16gb ram.

In order to upgrade ram capacity of newly bought ideapad C340 IWL, I bought  Kingston's hyperx impact* model (16gb/2400mhz ddr4)  After the installation the capacity rose to 20gb. There was no problem until I began to use the laptop.

 

  Although I opened a few program, The heat rose immediately, and until the programs were closed, it never dropped. The fans began to work continuously. then ı tried to open just  one program, Chrome. I tested it by opening 20 pages at the same time. (According to task manager, %22 of the memory is used) The result was same. Heat rose, fans began work noisily. (not a normal way, They were spinning insanely, As if there was a fire inside. As if they were the unoficial lenovo fire department) I decreased the number of pages to below 10. But the fan worked intermittently.

 

  Then I switched rams, and installed ramatex, the original one  which lenovo sold c340 with it ( 2666mhz 4 gb ram).

Right now, I'm writing this message using ramatex 4gb. The chrome has more than 30 pages open, b esides that 6separate programs are open  (two office program, photoshop cs6, itunes   and vlc player). And surprisingly there is no heat, no fan noise  at all. (%80 of memory is being used)
