Memory upgrade Lenovo IdeaPad 320-15IKB (7200U, 940MX, FHD), from 2133 to 2400? Can work together??

Hi sirs. i have a problem with frequencies, recently i acquires an Lenovo IdeaPad 320-15IKB (7200U, 940MX, FHD), the problem it's have an internal memory ddr4 2133 mhz 4gb. The memory it's on board "solded" and it's frequency is 2133 . Aditionally i bought a 8gb of ram and 2133 mhz frec. memory.


But this is not a problem. ¿Right? So, it's not the end of this beautifull history. The problem it's when i recibed the memory, i get a so-dim with 8gb of ram and 2400 mhz frec., yes, my sender send a diferent frequency memory.

So finally, the question it's. ¿What can i do? ¿Can i disable on-board memory? ¿ The laptop can work with this two tipes of frec.? ¿Or i can't do anything now and try to use that memory as a souvenier?

Thank y 4 wachin

Hi Belimon,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

It can work with mixed speed although would underclock with the lower frequency.

Checking on the parts look up page shows recommended 2400 rams too.

 

You may go ahead and try it.

 

Regards

It's work perfect! No i´m having 12 gigs of ram Smiley Tongue. The memory  underclock to 2133 and the system work perfect with both now. I realliced that windows 10 with visual s 2017 + opera(only 1 page)+ antiv + Windows Paint take almost 5 gigs of ram Smiley Indifferent.

Hello! I have the same laptop and i want to extend my memory as well but i looked up on crucial where i was informed about my memory and slot cap.(20Gb) and since i have only 1 slot and it says the installed memory is 4 gb which is not removable, im not sure about the safety of extending memory for example with an 8gb ddr4...

Hola Belimon

(I write you in Spanish because your Windows is in Spanish Smiley Wink )

 

quería preguntarte si luego del upgrade de la memoria, el desempeño de la notebook mejoró. Mi duda surge a partir de ver que en el screenshot del taskManager el uso del disco se mantiene al 100% y un +/-30% de CPU

 

Saludos -pablo-
