Hi there, Ingo–

 

Thank you for writing in to the Lenovo Forum - happy to have you here today.

 

Seems like all the recommended RAMs for your laptop are 1600MHz. Check pg 91 -

 

https://us.download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_y40_50_series_hmm.pdf

 

Also, seems like its 8GB per slot, so a total of 16GB which should be DDR3L type.

I don’t have this laptop so all this information is derived from the Maintenance manual.

 

Even if you do have 32GB of spare SO-DIMMs, I would hardly not recommend trying it against Lenovo specs, first because you void warranty by doing so, and if there is an actual note on the Y50-70 manual specifying 16GB as maximum RAM, BIOS will probably be locked up.

 

Update us how it goes.

 

 

 

Regards,
