Re: Flex 3 adding RAM

Hi alxnz , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

Would you have the machine number from the sticker or get it from here so that we would be able to know specific details and upgrade possible for your RAM . Just keep the serial number confidential.

 

Offered FRU list from the hardware manual would show specifications of memory you would need and you can download it from the support website (type in your machine type then choose the documentation tab ) .

 

Update us as soon as convenient,

 

Regards

This machine only has one memory slot, to upgrade you may need to remove the original memory and install the new memory in its place.
The maximum RAM has already been installed by the manufacturer.
When installing 4GB or more into a machine with a 32-bit version of Windows the amount usable will vary between 3GB and 3.5GB - Identify your version now.

 

You can also scan your computer with this software:http://eu.crucial.com/eur/en/systemscanner

 

Not be possible to upgrade your computer with the version of 11 "inches.
