Yes, you can upgrade, but there's only 1 available slot, as you saw in the pic I posted. That is, you cannot remove the existing 4GB of RAM which is soldered to the motherboard. You can buy an additional 4GB or an 8 GB RAM to take the total memory to 8GB or 12 GB respectively.

0 soldered, add 16GB. <this is rare.

4GB soldered, add 16GB <this is showing on crucial/kingston. Not Lenovo. 20GB total.

8GB soldered, add 8 GB, total 16GB.

 

Any 4GB added in slot with soldered is within spec.  4+4 (stick in slot); 8 +4 (stick in slot). Thus 8/12 GB total installed.

Lenovo states 16GB max, thus notes about crucial/kingston 20GB max.

This specific model DOES come with 4GB RAM soldered. 

 

https://www.lenovo.com/in/en/laptops/ideapad/ideapad-300-series/Ideapad-330S-14-Intel/p/88IP30S0987

 

Kindly check this link which clearly states that maximum RAM can be in the configuration of 4GB + 8 GB

this is incorrect  16GB RAM Stick -- so far is the max ram stick that can be added, that I know of, giving a total of 20GB of RAM

So I have an already existing stick of 8gb (total: 12gb) in my 330s so is it recommended upgrading it with a 16gb stick?

 

 

Thanks,

From self experience yes you could add 16 GB stick to your laptop, but your millage may vary.

Did you tried installing 16GB stick along with soldered 4gb RAM. I want to upgrade the same for my 330s laptop.
