memory upgrade on 330-17IKB (Type 81DM) Laptop (ideapad)

According to Lenovo Solution Center, my 330-17IKB (Type 81DM) Laptop (ideapad) has two memory slots, each with 4gb of memory. Wanting to double that, I ordered two 8gb cards. But when I went in to change them out there is only one slot. I changed out the one card and the system recognizes it. Now the solution center says I have two slots, one with 4gb and one with 8gb. Where is the other slot?

Thanks for the reply. Any thoughts as to why they would solder memory into the motherboard?
