Dell Inspiron 7559 ram upgrade

This question has been answered by DesFrSpace

Hi All, I recently got a Dell Inspiron 7559. It came with a 8GB Skhynix "hmt41gs6bfr8a-pb no aa 1506" RAM stick. I'd like to upgrade it to 16GB. I thought I had bought the same 8GB RAM model from ebay, but I had received an 8 GB Skhynix "hmt41gs6bfr8a-pb na aa 1511". Are they two completely different models because of their different nomenclature? Can I still use it to upgrade my ram? Thank you

  • I'm pretty sure that model does have 2 dimm slots, seeing as how I've taken it apart and seen 2 slots myself.

    Just to clarify, this is the model i'm talking about:

  • I'm going to receive similar Inspiron 15 7559, and yes the RAM should work, as long it is a real legit " DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800)" memories.

    If you are unsure, this specific memories from WindowCentral's video I've found on Youtube on adding an additional 8GB of RAM.

    Well, good luck upgrading you laptop, and enjoy the potential of 16 GB of RAM! Note the limit for this model is 32 GB if I remember correctly.

  • There's only one memory socket on this model, so an 8G isn't going to get you an upgrade.  You need a 16G module to upgrade.

    These are available, but brace yourself of the price - they're expensive:

    (as you can see, going from 8G to 16 causes the price of a module to rise by a factor about five).
