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,

HI Guys:

 

I also have the same model 20378 and I am having a problem with my 16gb ram, so I need to change it. I understand that the Lenovo spects do not show 32gb RAM, however the lenovo solution center is saying that the max ram for my model 20378 is 32gb, so which one is correct? I am passed warranty so I guess I will have to find out but it would be nice to get some light on this issue as there are no specific answers for this. :)
