RAM cards underneath keyboard

I am considering adding more memory to my P72.  It currently has only 8GB.  If I remove the keyboard to access the current memory, will I find one 8GB card or two 4GB cards?  I want to make sure my memory will be running in dual mode.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Kind regards,

Hi!
I suspect you will find only one. I custom-built my P52 (16GB) and had the option of one 16GB or two 8GB, I chose 2x8GB for Dual-channel.

Since 8GB is the minimum, that's why I guess one DIMM. But if you get CPU-z, it will tell you if you have one or two in the memory section.

Thanks, Martin.  I thought that might be the case.  I wanted to avoid removing the keyboard, but I think the trouble will be worthwhile.  Now to find that keyboard removal tool.

 

Kind regards,

Hi!
Some people use a plastic guitar pick or other similar device like the iFixit picks.

This has been discussed here already, search for it.
