Lenovo IdeaPad 310-15isk 80SM01MAUK RAM upgrade Help Please

Hi everyone,

 

Recently I bought the Lenovo IdeaPad 310-15isk 80SM01MAUK 4GB RAM i3 6006U 1TB HDD from Amazon for £299.00 (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B076DFMKB2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1). I was thinking if I can upgrade the RAM of this laptop to 20 GB DDR4 2133 MT/s as crucial suggests here: http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/compatible-upgrade-for/Lenovo/ideapad-310-%2815-inch%29. Also, on the Lenovo Solution Center application it also says the maximum RAM for my laptop is 20GB.

 

Is that correct? Please help me.

 

Kind Regards,

Shabaz Ali

According to platform specification, your laptop supports up to 12GB RAM.

Moreover someone asked the same question about a year ago.

Thanks for the reply, but it doesn't show my CPU on their database for some weird reason. CPU: i3 6006U 2.0GHz

How can I make 12 GB? I have 4GB non removable memory currently in my laptop. Also, can I use crucial DDR4 2133 MT/s memory?

Your laptop have single slot for memory module. You can install 8GB module to increase total memory to 12GB. Some people said, that you can use any 8GB DDR4 module, but it's always advised to buy a module, which will match frequency/timmings of soldered RAM. You can use HWiNFO to get these information.

 

Please refer to user manual to learn how to install memory module.

I suspect that you are reading that on a Windows 10 panel ("Task Monitor" or "Resource Monitor" perhaps).  Be aware that that is telling you what the motherboard chipset is capable of supporting.  It does not tell you how many slots are installed in your system.  I believe that the 4GB soldered + one free memory slot is correct for your system.

 

The other point concerns what will fit in the slot.  The specifications and "Hardware Maintenance Manual" tell you what Lenovo tested in your system.  If Crucial claim that a 16GB memory module will work in your system, then buy the recommended memory module from Crucial, as they offer a money-back guarantee if it turns out not to work.

 

Buying a 16GB memory module from a different supplier may be cheaper, but it represents a risk, as if the memory module does not work, that supplier may refuse to take it back for a refund (or he may charge you a restocking fee).

Can I just get another 4GB? If I want 8gb altogether?
