Lenovo Thinkpad S540 Memory Upgrade

2016-09-23, 7:55 AM

This morning I received my order for new memory for my laptop and after getting all excited... it didn't work :(



Old memory was: 1x HMT41GS6AFR8A

New memory is: 2x KVR16LSE11/8


I tried all combinations (new banks alone, 2gether with old, different slot, etc), it just never boots (no BIOS screen, nothing).


I this topic: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Thinkpad-S540-RAM-Upgrade/td-p/1542834 I read:

Your system will support DDR3 PC3-12800 & DDR3 PC3-14900 DDR3 (non-ECC), as your system was shipped with DDR3 PC3-12800, I suggest you to go for the same.


You can check with 4GB PC3-12800 DDR3L SDRAM 1600MHz SODIMM.
