What is the max ram for Lenova M70e 0830 series?

I recenely purchanced one that came with windows 10, previously it was a windows 7. It came with two RAM slots and a 4 GB stick. I can't find out what the true max ram is, is it 4GB or 8GB? Can 8 be installed on this pc? Was 4 the max when it was a windows 7? The Processor is an Intel Core 2 Quad. It's a 64 bit system.

You can use a memory test tool like MemTest86 to determine the specs of the existing 4 GB dimm, and then source an additional one with the exact same specs.

I'm so confused lol. If it can support up to 8, how come the set standard is just at 4?

I don't know what a set standard is.  It can support two 4 GB dimms, 8 GB max.  I suspect that a BIOS update during it's lifecycle enabled the use of newer 4 GB dimms (replacing the previous 2 GB dimm max.)  A similar thing happened with the M58.

This appears to be a recurring question.  Perhaps you could let us know what the specs for the existing Dimm is, and what you were able to find to match it.  Ty.
