Hi Alex, 


I did the same thing and bought the same unit which is HP Zbook G5 4RB11UT#ABA

 

I bought 4 pieces of 16MB but found out that it's so difficult to update the 2 of them as it's buried under system board.

 

I am wondering if you ended up changes all the 4 memory and have any tips.

 

Thanks,
Rudy

Hi @spybreak 

Sorry, it took a few days to get back to you. Yes, I see two of the slots are quite difficult to get to (especially on a new PC :))

I believe the reason is that the bottom ones are customer accessible and the hidden one is not. Maybe an economic kind of thing.

Anyway, I can only provide some info

On page 72 of the service manual, you can see the steps to replace the RAM

Maybe these videos can also help. You can click on each step in the list on left

Would I recommend you do it yourself? Probably better to take to a local trusted technician. Even I, myself, as a technician get a bit anxious when opening such an expensive and new device 🙂

 

Let me know if I can be of further help and enjoy the beautiful machine.

 

All the best,

David

Hi!

 

About this "max supported RAM question", doesn't this manual:

 

http://www8.hp.com/h20195/v2/GetPDF.aspx/c05940985.pdf

 

states that up to 128 GB ram is supported?  How is so?

 

Thank you!
