Lenovo t540p 32gb

2016-02-08, 18:37 PM

Hi,

 

I have a lenovo t540p,

I was wondering what will happen if I add 32gb ( 2 x 16).

 

The laptop will detect the extra 16gb ?

 

Thanks

Unfortunately, the T540p doesn't support the new 16GB DDR3L modules.

The 16GB modules only work on 5th gen machines. T540p is 4th gen.

Yes. T550 is 5th

 

You can always tell by the CPU.  The designations start T3, T5, T7 followed by-xxxx.  The number after the "-" is the generation, so I7-4600U is 4th gen, i7-5500U is 5th gen, etc.

Right, the CPU does support 32 GB RAM, but only in a machine with four slots when using four 8 GB modules. The T540p has only two slots and 16 GB modules aren't supported.

Still try it. I know the T410 only supported 8Gb ram officially but got 16 in it.

Hi All,

I'm just in the same case now. As I found the below URL, can I say that it is possible for 32GB with latest BIOS now?
