32Gb upgrade possible

HP Recommended
Name: m7-n109dx Number: M1W11UA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This laptop has an Intel i7-6500U, 6th gen processor.  Intel specifies that the processor can handle up to 32Gb of RAM, depending on the type of RAM.  Intel specifies that possible RAMS for this processor are DDR4-2133, LPDDR3-1866, and DDR3L-1600.  I understand this laptop sold with type DDR3L.  Does that mean other types of RAM can't be used and is there any way to upgrade to 32Gb?  I have a video project that would greatly benefit from more RAM.

Hi:

 

Theoretically the processor and chipset would support 2 x 16 GB of DDR3L memory but the odds are against you for it working.

 

The service manual states the max is 2 x 8 GB of DDR3L memory.

The Crucial memory report indicates the max is 2 x 8 GB of DDR3L memory.

You can only install DDR3L memory in your notebook.

 

DDR4 memory runs at a different voltage, has a different number of contact pins, and the slot in the memory is cut in a different place to prevent someone from installing the wrong memory in the slot.

 

It would be a complete gamble on your part to install a 16 GB memory chip.

 

They are also very expensive too because very few notebooks could support a 16 GB DDR3L memory chip in one slot.
