Hi, my notebook model is Lenovo IdeaPad 320S-15IKB 80X50042HH
I want to upgrade my 4GB ram as it is not enough
I want to ask how many slot inside the notebook? I need to replace a 4GB ram to a new one or I can add one more ram inside my notebook?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Your laptop, based on an image I found on Lenovos website and part numbers, has one RAM slot an no soldered RAM. It only has a single RAM slot and you'll need to replace it with a DDR4 2400MHz SODIMM. Officially it supports 8GB, but it should work flawlessly with a 16GB stick. As far as I know, somebody in this forum already put 16GB in it and it works.

A Kudo and putting the post as the topics solution would be nice. That shows others that the thread is solved.
I mean, based on the Lenovo specification, I would only really recommend 8GB, but 16GB should be fine actually. How much RAM do you want to install?

It is technically not said to be working by Lenovo itself, but it should work without problems nonetheless. In your case, I would try it. If it doesn't work, send it back and buy an 8GB module instead. But I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work. People have been putting 16GB sticks in their devices which are supposed to only accept 8GB sticks and it is working wonderfully.

Yes. Although you should really go for a reputable brand like Samsung, Corsair, Kingston, G-Skill, SK Hynix. But beyond that, it basically doesn't matter what you buy as long as it is DDR4 2400MHz SODIMM.

When the RAM speed is higher than the CPU could handle, the BIOS automatically clocks it down to the highest supported value, which in your case is 2400 MHz. But yes, you can install a 2666 MHz stick, it will run at 2400 MHz though.
