AFAIK, there's no such a thing as single/dual layer RAM. Instead there's a single-rank and dual-rank memory. I'm aware, that some laptops requires modules which have correct rank confiugration - otherwise laptop will not boot. In case of your laptop, required rank configuraiton depends on module's capacity:

  • 4GB module - single-rank (1Rx16).
  • 8GB module - single-rank (1Rx8).
  • 16GB module - dual-rank (2Rx8).

Thanks for spotting the typo.

 

I'll re-post in case others are similarly confused.
