Hi:

 

According to chapter 1 of the service manual, your notebook supports 2 x 8 GB of memory.

DDR4-3200 memory should work fine, but it will only run at 2666 MHz because that is as fast as your notebook's processor can run the memory at.

 

The Crucial memory report indicates that your notebook can support 2 x 16 GB of memory.

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.

Hi:

So i tried this command "wmic memphysical get maxcapacityEx"  and the result is 33554432. So it will support total of 32 GB, right? (i.e  2 x 16 GB of memory.)
