Hi vnwarrio , 

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

You can reference the hardware manual for steps in upgrading the RAM (page 42

Standard  Memory specifications: • 1,600 MHz SODIMM × 1 (max 8 GB)   DDR3L (low voltage)

OEM recommended FRU RAM list on page 84 item 9  

 

Procedure may be similar to this video for upgrade but always use the hardware manual for full details. 

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

Hi vnwarrio , 

 

Would you have the machine number ? Check on the machine number from the sticker or check it from here ,just keep your serial number confidential if needed.

 

You may review your machine manual (page 42) . 

Remove the memory EMI shielding bracket (metal shield) to show the RAM sticks

Time mark on 5:25 on the video . Try to inspect how the metal shield is clipped on yours as it usually is placed by thin adhesives over the medtal plate.

 

Update us soon as convenient. 

 

Regards
