Re: Upgrading RAM

8GB total should be enough for most everything on the computer. You probably will see no difference between 8Gb and 12GB. I would install 4GB and maybe consider installing an SSD by the replacing the mechanical hard drive. This would make a big difference in everyday performance.

 

Let me know if you need any further help,

David

Re: Upgrading RAM

Hi,

 

Your PC supports max 16GB of DDR3L-1600Mhz RAM (2x8GB)

 

So you could add one stick of 4GB in the empty slot. On page 2 and 47 of service manual you can see various configurations and steps to upgrade RAM.

Re: Upgrading RAM

Thank you for your Reply.  I am actually confused with 1600 MHZ because i checked my RAM details with a software which shows me something else. it shows '' Max Bandwidth PC3-12800 (800 mhz) '' Can you please check attached picture. When I am sure then I will Order 4gb Ddr3L RAM.  Thank you Smiley Happy

Re: Upgrading RAM

Hi,

 

DDR is double data rate, so you need to multiply the 800Mhz shown by 2 = 1600Mhz

 

In Windows go to task manager (right-click on start of desktop) and click on task manager. Now click on more details if necessary and go to the tab performance. Now on the left click on Memory and in the Windows you will see speed.

 

Hope it helps,

David
