T460S RAM Upgrade

2016-07-29, 10:46 AM

Exact Model: 20FAS2BJ0S

 

In Lenovo Solution Center it says I have 8 GB of a maximum of 32GB. See attached image. 

 

There are no 24GB SO-DIMM Modules.

 

There is one soldered 8GB module and I can by a 16GB or a 32GB SO-DIMM.

 

16 + 8 gives 24. How do I get 32GB? 

Solved! See the solution

That means the maximum supported RAM could be 32GB (2x16GB), not that you have 32GB

 

The line marked with the arrow indicates the amount of memory you have:

Maybe I was not clear. Somehow.

I know I have 8.
I know maximum supported is 32.

Now, translate that into SO-DIMM modules, I can insert ONE SO-DIMM Module. Nothing more.

I have 8GB soldered to mother board.. Max supported is 32GB, hense I shoul be able to upgrade to 32GB total.

There are no 24GB SO-DIMM Modules.
How do I get 32GB of total memory?

Or should we have ordered the laptops with 16GB soldered memory instead of 8GB? Then I am looking at returning 100 laptops... worst case...how should we even have known that those 8 are fixed on the mobo?

I think the solution center is calculating the max supported RAM considering the CPU architechture, not the T460s model specifically, but is just my guess...

 

Lenovo Tech Specs states that the max amount of RAM for the T460s is 20GB (4GB soldered + 1x16GB RAM I suppose)

Edit: There are no 24GB modules as far as I know

 

Edit 2: I guess you currently have 4GB soldered and an additional 4GB in the RAM slot

Yep, that was my conclusion as well. A tad misleading to say the least.

 

EDIT/ No I have 8 in the soldered, because the RAM slot is empty. Already opened and checked days ago.
