About the maximum capacity of RAM for IdeaPad S540

2019-09-01, 17:00 PM

Hi, 

 

I have bought a S540 15 inches (S540-15IWL GTX) model, comes with a 8G of RAM (there're 4G soldered on board, and I suppose there is one single slot for the upgrade), I'm wondering if I want to upgrade the memory, what's the maximum capacity that can be recognized. 

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Best,

Roy

Mostly they say 8GB, but a 16GB stick will work fine in most cases.

Hi Benji96,

Thanks for you prompt reply.
I've ordered a Crucial 16GB ram from amazon, the model is CT16G4SFD824A

And I also found that the Crucial official site could be a pretty useful source of checking the compatibility for the laptops. I've searched for compatible parts on the site with the info of my laptop model, it turns out that the 16GB stick is on the top of the ram list, which also confirmed the information you provided.

Many thanks and good day!

Hi @RoyLS, How much GB do you have after adding 16 GB RAM ? Do you have 20 GB recognized by windows ?

Thanks.

Hi @mbcon,

 

Yes, Windows recognise the total RAM memory as 20GB.

 

Regards,

Roy

Yes, it says the same maximum capacity to be 12GB (4GB on board).

A 16GB stick will most likely work, as already mentioned. If you wanna go the safe route, install only an 8GB stick.

I recently bought IdeaPad S540 13 API student edition which has 16 gb of ddr4ram. (Lenovo 81XC) User benchmark showed it as Micron 4ATF1G64HZ3G3G2B1 2x8GB. I wonder if those are soldered or not. If not is there any room for upgrade?

Best,
