it will take 8gb (2X4GB)

 

The T410 is the first one that can use more than that

it will take 16gb (2X8GB)

Careful!  The T400/T500 generation support max. 8Gb (2x4GB  DDR3-1066 ).

The T420/T520 line was the first supporting 16GB.

thanks, and can you recommend a memory that supports my laptop?
I have seen several types on Ebay and I do not know which to choose.

I want to install an SSD plus 8 GB of ram to improve performance.


regards!

You need DDR3-1066  2Rx8  1.5V   ( not DDR3L =  1.35V )   memory.  DDR3-1333 should  work too. 
Don't buy 1Rx8 memory. IIRC they won't work in a T400.

I bought Kingston Value memory when  I had a T500.   The part number would be  KVR1066D3S7/4G  or  KVR1333D3S9/4G.

Thank you very much, I plan to buy an SSD to improve performance.

Is this compatible? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kingston-A400-240GB-SSD-SATA-3-2-5-Solid-State-Drive-SA400S37-Tracking-include/153033364347?epid=26015360199&hash=item23a17fd37b:g: uAcAAOSw1-5bESjU
