IdeaPad 3 14ARE05 ram upgrade.

2020-09-20, 19:22 PM

I'm looking to upgrade the ram from 4gb to 8gb, all the websites and youtube videos I've read and seen show how it's done.  But after looking at my motherboard I can't find the ram slot, seems I have a different motherboard and I can't find any info if its possible.  Are there different motherboards used  in same models?

Hi swanseajack,




I suggest you share the Machine Type Model or MTM in the sticker (ex. 80YL00P7US) so we can specifically check on your systemboard.


Product specification sheet shows:

8GB max offering / 2666MHz DDR4, 

4GB memory soldered to systemboard, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket


Update us soon as convenient.
