RAM-upgrade Lenovo Yoga 530-14ARR 81H90071GE

2019-03-30, 14:22 PM

Hello!

 

Can I upgrade the Lenovo Yoga 530-14ARR 81H90071GE from 4GB RAM to 8GB or 16GB RAM?

Does someone have some experience with this?

Is the RAM soldered to with the interface?

Does the Lenovo Yoga 530-14ARR 81H90071GE even have a second interface?

 

Kind Reagards

Paul

 

(please apologize my english ;))

Solved! See the solution

Greetings and welcome new Lenovo forum user from Germany,

 

Yes there are two DDR4 SODIMM sockets and I would like to refer you to page 41 (Removing and replacing > DIMM) of the Hardware Maintenance Manual from your system and here is a link to Amazon for a choice of 260-Pin DDR4 2400MHz RAM to pick from or an idea of prices.

0 person found this solution to be helpful.

This helped me too

That is correct, system RAM modules combine and are not seen as individual storage.

And so it does YOGA 530 (14") AMD Platform Specifications - 14ARR 

 

Well than given the manufacture (Lenovo) max RAM specs indicate 16GB than,

    1. Take a chance by installing two sticks of 16GB and hope for the best.

    2. Call Lenovo support and ask ... but really they are most of time not very helpful in my experience.

    3. Lower your expectations and play it safe plus save money by installing two 8GB DIMMs.

Sometimes when a company publishes specs for a laptop the technology for things like the amount of RAM is the limiting factor. 16GB DIMMs may not have been available at that time, but now they are available. 

 

A cautionary note though: 32GB or RAM may not be recognized by the motherboard. It may fit and it may operate ok, but the system may only recognize 16GB. If you do try it, please report back to let us know.

Coud be there is only one, I was going by this " two DDR4 SO-DIMM sockets " stated in the Platform Specifications.
