Ram increase Dell Studio 1558

This question is answered

Studio 1558 - i5-450M

OS : Windows 7 Home Premium.

I am kind of confused, since the Dell website says that I can 8GB maximum, but a software I installed says that I have 2 memory slots already used.

I don't want to open the computer, so is it possible to upgrade the RAM and is there any kind of specific RAM I should use ?

  • First, you must have a 64-bit version of Windows - if you have a 32-bit version, it won't support more than 4G of RAM.

    You will need to replace one or both of your 2 gig memory modules with a 4-gig.

  • Buy RAM from Crucial.com

    Most laptops only have 2 memory slots and usually filled when the laptop leaves the factory.

    If you want 8GB, you will need to have 4GB + 4GB.

    my Dells:
    Precision M6300 - Windows 7 / Ubuntu 12.04
    Latitude D620 - XP Pro SP3
