Thinkpad S440 16GB memory upgrade

2016-02-26, 4:44 AM

I was wondering whether somebody could shed some light on this issue.

 

I am (as many more I guess) suffering from memory shortcut on my S440.

 

Now I just stumbled uppon a new upgrade option from Curcial:

http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/ct204864bf160b

 

Is this module compatible with a S440 i7 4500u?

 

BIOS might be an issue as far as I read.

Solved! See the solution

No,  It won't work and the problem isn't the BIOS or a Lenovo limitation.  You have a 4th gen CPU  i7-4500u.  The 16GB modules only work on 5th gen or later
