Hi:'

 

You can install DDR4-3200 memory, but it is only going to run at 2400 MHz, because that is the fastest speed your notebook's processor can run the memory at.

 

You can do this to see how much memory your notebook can support...

 

1. In the search box, search for cmd and click Run as administrator.

 

This will open the command prompt.

 

2. Once command prompt is opened, type wmic memphysical get maxcapacityEx and hit enter.

 

There, it will show the maximum RAM capacity your PC's motherboard can support.

 

The capacity is shown as Kilobytes, so you have to convert it to Gigabytes by dividing the number provided in the report by 1,048,576.

 

Below is the link to the service manual.
