Hi LenovoCEO,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Product specifications sheets show:

 

16GB max / 2400MHz* DDR4, dual-channel capable, 

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

 

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

 

Update us soon as convenient.

 

Regards

Hi LenovoCEO,

 

Greetings.

 

For the 80YL00RXIN, there is one 4GB ram soldered on-board and one slot that currently have 4GB DDR4.

 

The slotted 4GB can be replaced by 8GB (making total of 12GB) or 16GB (making a total 20GB) just like offered by Crucial.

 

OEM compatible offering here (Filter Commodity to Memory) but as long as the specs are the same as offered then branding is not an issue.

 

Steps are shown here in the hardware manual page 39.

 

Regards
