Lenovo Z565 memory upgrade Problem !!

Hello everyone,



          I have z565 and I am currently running on 4GB RAM. When I tried upgrading to extra 4GB it never detected the second RAM and shows only 4GB ram.


Does anyone have any idea what I can do to get hold of all 8GB.

Re: Lenovo Z565 memory upgrade Problem !!

Where are you seeing the report of only 4G?  BIOS, or in the OS, or some software tool?


What OS are you running?  A 32 bit OS will only be able to use 4G (actually a little less, typically).
