Re: V570 upgrade to 16gb of ram successful!

I have a V570 stock from best buy a few years back (4 maybe) and it came with 6 gigs (a 2 gig and a 4 gig). On the information here I decided to upgrade and purchased 16 gigs (2 x 8g). I got 8GB PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 MHZ DV 170131. It does not work.  Smiley Sad   Any thoughts on why it doesn't work. I have never tried this kind of stuff before, but I'm generally handy and it seems straightforward. I put the old memory back in and it works fine so I know I didn't mess anything up.

 

Any thoughts as to why it didn't work?

Re: V570 upgrade to 16gb of ram successful!

The preinstalled ram speed is 1333 MT/s. Which memory should I use?

 

Options:

                higher bus rate (12800 over the crucial’s 10600)

                higher frequency (Corsair 1600 - crucial 1333)

                lower price (as per now: Corsair 129 - crucial 146)

Re: V570 upgrade to 16gb of ram successful!

6 GB -> 16 GB RAM upgrade was successful! I used http://a.co/hFJTa4A. I am using Ubuntu 18.04. Now, all that is I should do is to increase /swapfile to match the new memory - recommended but not mandatory.
