Re: L440/L540 second ram slot

So I got 2x8gb of RAM, my L440 came with 4. I took out the 4gb slot and put the first 8gb stick on there. My problem is that I can't put on the second RAM stick. The RAM pins dont slide in like the first one. I try to lightly push it in but It doesnt slide in the slot. Am I doing something wrong? Where exactly are the pins supposed to go?

Re: L440/L540 second ram slot

Hello Mui, welcome to the community,


there are two slots, one on top of the other, on the L440.  When inserting RAM you need to ensure that you initially position and insert the module at an angle of about 20° to the slot and then push it down into place.  See p74 (pdf p80) of the Harware Maintenance Manual.


If needs require I'm sure you will loads of video tutorials on YouTube.  And please don't forget to let us know how you got on.
