Help me with upgrades please

2016-11-11, 2:54 AM

Hello, i have a Lenovo Z40-70 and i want to upgrade it at least the ram, but i heard that are some laptop that support GPU upgrades too... so i want to know what is the maximum ram that i could insert in my laptop and if there is a method so i can change my gpu, that is a nvidia geforce 820M for a up to date one like a 9M series or even a gtx series, but i think that isn't possible)  Anyway thanks for the help.

 

------------------------------------------------------------

Additional Info:

+I'm a little troubled too cause i didn't understand very well the difference between the integrated graphics card and the gpu, i was researching and i found that i got an intel hd graphics family as integrated card and a nvidia geforce 820M as gpu, i found too that the nvidia one is on a PCI-E 2.0 x9 @x4 1.1 port  if that helps you guys. 

 

+I have an I7 processor 

 

+My "base" ram is 6GB

 

thanks again c:

Solved! See the solution

The CPU and GPU are soldered so no upgrade there.  If you have 6GM memory, that would be 1X4GB + 1X2GB.  The maximum you could use is 2X8GB.
