Hi:

 

Since your notebook already has an 8 GB memory module, you may just want to add a second one and save money.

 

This would be a compatible 8 GB memory module for your notebook.

 

Amazon.com: Crucial 8GB Single DDR4 2400 MT/S (PC4-19200) SR x8 SODIMM 260-Pin Memory - CT8G4SFS824A...

 

Below is the link to the service manual where you can find the memory upgrade info, and the memory removal and replacement procedure.

yeah im on the fence of buying a kit or single stick as I'm getting a lot of different answers form different people some say don't mix brand others say dont but do it with sodimms some say make sure all the ram you have in your system should preferably come in one box and the 8g in my notebook is Samsung will that create compatibility issues

the image on the page showed it looks about right in how the pins look on the side to be attached but I want to be sure that the pin number and compatibility would work

I never had an issue mixing memory from different manufacturers.

 

The only time I have outfitted a PC with all new memory from the same mfr, is when the PC had no memory to start with, or I was upgrading from 2 x 4 GB to 2 x 8 GB for example.

 

Worst case scenario is if in the unlikely event the memory doesn't work well together, you buy a second Crucial 8 GB chip.

 

I suppose if money is no object, buy the 16 GB kit.

That is correct.

 

The max is 2 x 8 GB of memory as set forth in chapter 1 of the service manual I posted.

yes, so would it be overkill to buy a 2x8 kit because while the ram still works its about 3 years old and having the other in case of issues could help right?

I would say so.

 

Use the money you save and put it toward upgrading the mechanical hard drive to a better performing solid state drive.

 

If you can live with 500 GB of drive space instead of 1 TB, you can pick up this high performing 500 GB drive cheap.

 

Amazon.com: Western Digital 500GB WD Blue 3D NAND Internal PC SSD - SATA III 6 Gb/s, 2.5"/7mm, Up to...

 

That and a total of 16 GB of memory will breathe new life into your PC.
