Lenovo L340 Gaming upgradeability

2019-12-06, 9:10 AM

Hi everyone,

 

I bought a new L340 laptop, its a 81LK0060SC model, you know i7 9750h, 512G ssd, 8G RAM. So this 8 gig ram is too small for me, since I'm running VM-s on this when I'm on the road. So is it possible to cram in a 32 Gig stick. Like this one:


https://www.amazon.co.uk/Crucial-CT32G4SFD8266-SODIMM-260-Pin-Memory/dp/B07ZLC26HY/ref=sr_1_5?crid=310DXV8HJ7PI6&keywords=32gb+sodimm+ddr4+2666&qid=1575623310&sprefix=32+gb+sodim%2Caps%2C175&sr=8-5

 

My question is will the system support it if I put it in, and if not is Lenovo planing on Bios upgrade that enables this ?

 

Thanks and best regards,
Ninosaur

 

PS. Lenovo shame on you for not including the SATA cable inside...

Hi  ,

 

Welcome to Community Forums!

 

According to the System Specifications, the Ideapad L340 offers 16GB max / 2400MHz DDR4 for the memory. 

 

According to Crucial website the maximum RAM is up to 16 GB. Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.

We cannot guarantee if the 32GB would work, because there's no proven cases yet that it worked with this model.

 

You can find the updated BIOS version on the Support Site. Just type in the serial number then search. Go to Drivers and Software > Manual Update > BIOS/UEFI.

 

Hope this helps with your query.

 

Regards

Hi

@malvin_lenovo

 

this is not very helpful for the RAM since I need to wait for someone with 200$ extra to try this out.

On another point of this topic, I have found that this cable should be installed on my laptop, but it isn't. It says so here:

 

Who do I contact with this issue ?

 

Thanks and best regards,

Ninosaur :)

Hi  ,

 

Thanks for replying.

 

On the screenshot that you sent, it's on Compatible tab.

Check on As-Built tab and check if that HDD cable is included or not.

If it's included and you don't see it inside, then you might need to call Tech Support or contact the reseller.

You can also check the Service Providers in your location.

 

Regards
