I just bought V130-15IKB Laptop (type 81HN00EURI) for my mom. I want to upgrade the RAM as the 4 GB soldered might not be enough.
I would like to add an aditional 4 GB so the system can work in dual channel mode. To do this I know I must buy an (almost) identical SODIMM.
The problem is I don't know for sure what are the specifications of the soldered RAM.
On the site on which I bought the RAM it says 4 GB DDR4, 2133 MHz frequency.
However doing "lshw -C memory" in Ubuntu says something a bit different (at least regarding frequency):
*-memory description: System Memory physical id: 2 slot: System board or motherboard size: 4GiB *-bank:0 description: SODIMM DDR4 Synchronous Unbuffered (Unregistered) 2400 MHz (0.4 ns) product: M471A5244CB0-CRC vendor: Samsung physical id: 0 serial: 00000000 slot: ChannelA-DIMM0 size: 4GiB width: 64 bits clock: 2400MHz (0.4ns) *-bank:1 description: [empty] physical id: 1 slot: ChannelB-DIMM0
Also dmidecode (also Linux) lists about the same things:
# dmidecode 3.1 Getting SMBIOS data from sysfs. SMBIOS 3.0.0 present. Handle 0x0003, DMI type 17, 40 bytes Memory Device Array Handle: 0x0002 Error Information Handle: Not Provided Total Width: 64 bits Data Width: 64 bits Size: 4096 MB Form Factor: SODIMM Set: None Locator: ChannelA-DIMM0 Bank Locator: BANK 0 Type: DDR4 Type Detail: Synchronous Unbuffered (Unregistered) Speed: 2400 MT/s Manufacturer: Samsung Serial Number: 00000000 Asset Tag: 9876543210 Part Number: M471A5244CB0-CRC Rank: 1 Configured Clock Speed: 2400 MT/s Minimum Voltage: Unknown Maximum Voltage: Unknown Configured Voltage: 1.2 V
I tried with CPUZ in windows but did not get helpful info.
Does anyone knows if this laptop endeed has M471A5244CB0-CRC memory type (at 2400 MHz, 1.2 V) and if I buy 4GB of the same memory the laptop will work and maybe dual channel would also work?
Thanks a lot,

Hi AndreiP1! Welcome to our forums community. Yes, that RAM is one of the parts used in the V130-20IGM model. As for dual channel, there's a big chance that it work will since the memory controller on the CPU supports it.

Thanks a lot for the help Jwes_Lenovo!
I tried to purchase the Samsung memory but unfortunatelly can't find it anywhere in Romania.
So looking in the compatible memories for V130-15IKB on the Lenovo site I found:
