Problems with memory update ThinkPad W530 i5

Good morning,

in my PC Lenovo W530 type 2447-4MG (Intel i5) there are 2 banks of RAM with 8 gigabytes each one (Kingston KTL-TP3C/8G), in total 16 giga. Kingston no longer produces this RAM but there is an equivalent product (KCP316SD8/8).

I have bought two banks (8 + 8) of this new RAM.

When I install the new RAM on the empty slots (3 and 4), the PC will not start (the screen remains black).

It is not a compatibility problem between the RAM because I put two different type of RAM on slot 1 and 2 and the PC run right.

It seems that the system does not read the slots 3 and 4

I am sure that my PC can have 32 Giga of RAM, but I do not find a solution.

Please help me

 

Summarize the features of the PC:

Type                   ThinkPad W530 type 2447-4MG

CPU                    Intel i5-3320M 2.60GHz

Bios version      G5ETA5WW (2.65)

Hard disk            SSD 500 GBs

RAM (old)           Kingston KTL-TP3C/8G

To use all 4 slots, you need to have a quad core CPU

Re: Problems with memory update ThinkPad W530 i5

Thanks Richk,
For me this is a tragedy.

Indeed the processor installed in my PC is a dual core

 

Can I replace the processor?
What kind of processor have to buy?
Can you give me a code?

 

After, just change the processor or is necessary do anything else?


Help me please
Regards
