Ram upgrade DV6-7180se

Hello,

 

I was not able to find any information about which RAM modules are working for my DV6-7180se in order to upgrade from 6GB (already installed) to 8GB or 16GB.

I would be happy if anybody could tell me which kind of RAM module is necessary and working. I think 1x4GB and 1x2GB is currently inside the laptop.

 

Thanks, Andreas

Your notebook supports up to 16GB

You might consider using CPU-Z to find the specs for the installed 4GB memory module. You will have to replace both modules to upgrade to 8GB as mixing module brands\and module types is know to produce nasty no start issues.
