Lenovo Ideapad 510-15IKB RAM Upgrade



I'm planning for a RAM upgrade now.


Now I have 8GB in two slots.


4GB is soldered.


Can I replace the other 4GB with 16GB DDR4 PC4-17000 2133MHz 260-pin SODIMM.


If I can only replace it with 8GB of same spec above, what is the reason for it technically.


Awaiting a technical response.

Re: Lenovo Ideapad 510-15IKB RAM Upgrade

Hi Katheer,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Similarly discussed here ,it is advised to upgrade the current 4GB to an 8GB and not the 16GB.


Product specification shows :

12GB max / PC4-17000 2133MHz DDR4, 4GB memory soldered to systemboard, one 260-pin SO-DIMM socket.


OEM sets max capacity for the single available slot up to 8GB as shown in the hardware manual page 26 DDR4-2133 MHz, SODIMM × 1, on board × 1 (max 8 GB). The machine is certified under this setting so going beyond the recommendation is users risk in terms of functionality and compatibility (aside from the cost).


I hope this helps answer your query.
