HP Z240 cannot boot with 16gb RAM

Q: HP Z240 cannot boot with 16gb RAM

HP sent a 16gb 2Rx4 PC$-2133P-Ra0-10 seperately with the new PC (HP Z240 SZh3). It came with 8gb RAM. I replaced the 8gb RAM with 16gb RAM but it wont boot. Blinking RED power light which turns to white blinking light. HELP!

Preferred Solution: HP Z240 cannot boot with 16gb RAM

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Have a new Z240 Workstation with a Samsung 950 Pro 256GB M.2 nVMe SSD.Windows 10 will install to the SSD from USB no problem but the machine fails to find the OS post install.The Samsung 950 Pro SSD does not show up in the UEFI section of the BIOS, but it does show up under Legacy devices.Secure Boot is not enabled. If I add a SATA HDD,  Windows Boot Manager gets installed on the SATA device and the machine will then boot Windows 10 from SSD. How do I get the machine to boot from SSD without having to have a SATA HDD installed? I've updated the BIOS from 01.11 to 01.21 with no change in the above.

Issue: Whever the system is booted/rebooted after POST, while transfering control to OS, the system goes into a pause/halt (keyboard and mouse doesn't responds)Workaround: As soon as one of the monitors is turned off, seems control passes to Windows 7 ("Loading windows" on black screen shows up) and boots normally, now the monitor can be turned on and dual display works as usualAdditional info: While the system is paused, if the NUM/CAPS/SCROLL lock is pressed in a particular sequence (even though the lights actually don't respond), it looks like the key-press sequence gets stored in buffer. This is verfied once one of the monitor is turned off, the same keypress pattern lights up on the keyboardSetup: z240 with 2x23" monitor connected to Display-ports, HP smartcard keyboard and mouse connected to rear USB. BIOS version 1.11 (SP74759)Has anyone experianced similar issue or anyone has a fix for this?

A:z240 boot issue with dual monitor setup

Same here.New Z240 workstation with Xeon E3-1245 v5 and two monitors HP Z24n, both attached on the motherboard's DisplayPorts.OS: Windows 7 Enterprise x64 Sp1 with latest patches and drivers (including monitors' one), BIOS (01.27 Rev.A)  I found two workarounds: power down and restart, or briefly attach another DVI monitor. I will try your trick to power off a monitor.  P.S. Initially I had the same problem using two Samsung DVI monitors and HP DisplayPort->DVI adapters. I thought it was a problem with the signal conversion and changed monitors. Probably this post is an instance of the same problem:http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z-240-Video/m-p/546...

Inspiron 14z n411z (Laptop): Authoritative confirmation of memory upgrade to 16 GB, 16GB, 16gb

There are various claims that 14z/n411z can be upgraded to 16GB (unofficial or therotical based on CPU-i5 being Sandy bridge)

Here are the main issues on this subject that has left many customers scramble for answers and find themselves confused:
* It is the interest of customers that Dell come out with an official statement "confirming" or "denying" if this is possible
* Yes, at the time of sale Dell stated that max permitted was 8GB. But now therotically (Sandy Bridge CPU can support 16Gb) and based on other users experiments it seems possible, but no concrete/firm proof available.
* If it is possible, Dell can always state that it will not support 16GB, though it (Dell) has tested it as possible in their labs.
* In the absence of a confirmation from Dell, most memory vendors are not selling memory 16 GB upgarde for Inspiron using their "configurators".
* There is another confusing twist to this problem, created by the fact there is another Dell XPS model facing same problem. But they newer CPU, for which most vendors are selling the memory upgrade on their configurators.
* For Dell, most users are now "past their Warranty" period. There is no liability in answering this question. In the LARGER interest of customers Dell should clear this doubt.
For those users who have done this at their home or office, can you please show us the "steps" and "results":
* Some users have claimed they have upgraded successfully to 16GB after updating their BIOS to current or latest version
* Can these early adopters post videos or steps on how they have done this. Please.
* Some have indicated they have faced problems, but have not stated if the BIOS upgrade was done
* Also what has been your experience after running it for few months.
* There are claims that 16GB upgrade has dramatically improved the life of 14z N411z, theoretically I would agreed it would. Proof required.

I have just built a new pc with the following (all new components 6/17/2011):
os: win7 64bit
mb: asus m5a88-v evo
hd: seagate 1.5tb 6gb/s
ram: g.skill ddr3 4gb each stick (3 installed)

I had a hard time trying to install windows until I disconnected the blueray dvd (sata) and pulled out 2 of the memory sticks. I've tried to have 16Gb of ram but windows doesn't boot if all 4 stick are installed. It works great with 3 sticks.

A:Windows 7 does not boot with 4 ram sticks (16gb)

The bios version is still at the initial stage.
I suspect that as ASUS posts new bios updates, more memory will be supported and bugs will get fixed.
You may want to check and see if your ram is on the Qualified Vendors List.

HP DV7-7135US

Originally came with 8GB RAM - upgraded to 16GB with exact same timings as original RAM.

BIOS is up to the latest/greatest version.

Since upgrading boot time has been miserably slow. I've since done a complete reload of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and installed at the latest drivers from the HP website - boot times are still extremely long.

Original hard drive was a 750GB 5400RPM drive (not a hybrid, not SSD), switching over to a 1TB 5400RPM drive made no difference.

Virtual memory is set to allow Windows to manage.

By the way, booting into Ubuntu takes no more than 15 seconds.

Any suggestions? 3+ minutes to boot into Windows excessive to say the least!

A:Extremely slow boot after upgrade to 16GB

If you drop back to 8GB, does the problem go away? Not a fix, just a test to see what happens.

Hi I have an Asus rog g750 jw. For a while now my pc has been booting up slow, 3-4mins from 1-2mins from 30secs. I have did so many test and removed so many programs and viruses that I am not completely sure what the source of the problem is. one thing I did do is disable some services in services.msc although I am not sure which ones caused it, so that may be an issue. I really don't want to have to fully reset my pc, but any help is sincerely apperciated. (minor lags on beginning, but no over cpu usage or memory usage)

A:Boot time for notebook really slow - 3-4mins (16gb i7 4700 proccesor)

I have also disabled drivers like the keyboard, mouse and some Nvedia drivers in device manager because There was a spill on the laptop and...

A:Updating Firmware for Z240

When you run HP service packs, they will expand and place their contents under an own directory within C:\swsetup.Specifically in your case, if you run sp74202.exe, you should see a new directory C:\swsetup\SP74202 has been created with the contents of the service pack within. Alternatively you can use 7-zip to peek inside the service pack exe without running it since the exe is a self extracting zip file that runs the installer once decompressed  In any case, a newer ME update exists here but i'd first apply the latest system firmware update available here. When looking at the HP service pack links above, it's good practice to selectively click each "Description", "Enhancements", "Installation Instructions" "Release Notes" "Fixes" and "Revision History" tabs and read the information (some of it is repetative but you'll soon learn where to focus your attension). The contents of these tabs contain important and relevant information on what has been improved, fixed, which system it's for, how to install the update, etc. And if a previously installed SP is not listed in the "revision history" tab, that release may have been pulled by HP due to some fauly behaviour or other issue! Pay particular attension to the prerequisits as in some instances firmware updates have to be stepped (that is you can't always simply apply the latest). And if you read such boaring stuff, the system firmware (BIOS) Installation Instructions tab would have given you a clue where the sp files are expanded to  Have you tried simply enter the command (as specified) via a command prompt window but changing directories to where the FWUpdLcl.exe file is located? Just keep in mind that sp74202 is the initial ME firmware release so nothing sould update  So best to apply the latest system firmware (BIOS), then the ME firmware, then maybe the latest ME software (under chipset drivers). Best to bookmark this page which lists all the downloads for your z240 Windows 10 64bit tower system so check it out periodically.

I am trying to setup my new HP Z240 workstation, but cannot get the graphics card to operate at any resolution above 1024 X 768. The graphics card is an NVIDIA QUADRO K620. It is connected to the monitor with a DVI-D Dual link cable. The monitor is an HP w2408. The monitor has two inputs (DVI and VGA). I have the VGA input connected to another HP computer with a NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 card (this computer/card/monitor displays at 1920 x1200). When I checked the adapter modes (using the list modes option), the best mode listed is 1024 x 768. The NVIDIA spec sheet lists the max resolution with DVI-I as 2560 x 1600 or 1920 x 1200. What can I do to get the max resolution from my monitor (1920 x 1200)?











Solved!

Update.  Problem solved. When I realized that the monitor in DVI mode was not being recognized as PNP, it pointed to the monitor as the problem. Installed new monitor, everythng works as it should. Evidently the VGA input to the old monitor functioned properly while the DVI portion was defective (card or cable connection). Dave6666

When I download graphics card driver 15.20.1045 (sp73511.exe) from the HP site and install this, the properties display 15.200.1045.So I'm now not sure if the corect driver is installed, because I'm still getting graphics card errors. Our software supplier PTC recommends the certified 15.20.1045-version so how do I get this right?

Hello, My company recently purchased some Z240 SFF workstations and put in aftermarket multi-media card readers in the 3.5" slot. The card reader uses the internal USB 3.0 header, so I had to unplug the USB 3.0 cable for the for the front usb ports in order to get it to work. The media card reader works just fine in Windows, however, I get a POST error message on startup: "Cable detection Error 41A- Front USB2 Not Connected. Front USB cable has been detached or unseatted from the motherboard. Press Enter to continue." Is there anyway to disable POST messages? I can't seem to find anything in the UEFI/BIOS to do this.

A:Z240 POST Message disable?

One of the HP engineers who has been very helpful to us here has recently posted on a related question, and he has access to the schematics and the internal design details of these workstations.  His post is on this thread,  HERE : http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/HP-Z420-USB3-0-Head... Dan tells how to jumper the header to make it believe the cable is still connected, and it would not matter whether you jumpered at the motherboard end or the far plug end, as long as you got the correct pins/plug holes jumpered. Note his caution.... that seems to suggest that the pins on the motherboard are not as stout as the ones we are used to seeing.  A proper sized insulated wire jumper with a short segment of wire exposed at each end can be used as a jumper at the far plug end of a cable, rather than the little plastic jumpers we use at the motherboard pin end of thins.  If you carefully figure out the wire colors this should work. The wiring of such headers/cables within a HP workstation family are usually the same, and things can stay the same from one generation to another, in my experience.

HiI have bought a z240 tower which runs really well with win 7 pro. Recently, I wanted to add an SATA extension card, but without any success. I am looking for a simple SATA controller without RAID functionality (which unnecessary slows down the boot procedure). Unfortunately, HP does not offer any SATA boards as accessories - Is there any recommendation for such a card from your side? I've bought a LogiLink PC0059A card, unfortunately, the system does no longer startup when connecting drives to it. The hp BIOS  screen appears as usual, then the card shows the attached drives, after that the hp bios screen appears again and reamains without any reaction (reboot required). Thanks for any hints Tom

Hi, I had a look inside and the Z Turbo drive appears to be connected to the motherboard (location 23 on the motherboard map in the manual) and not using a SATA port or any of the four main PCIe3 slots. Only one of the PCIe3 slots is being used and that is for the NVIDIA graphics card, and only one of the SATA ports is being used and that is for the Slim BluRay drive (connected to SATA3). That means there are 3 x SATA ports available, and 2 x 3.5" and 1 x 2.5" bays available, by the looks of it. My question is, is it possible to put 3 x HDD/SSD drives in it, i.e. 2 x 3.5" and 1 x 2.5"?

Hello matt_william,  If you are using a retail version of Windows 7 Operating System. You may have to install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver while installing the OS. On the HDD partition windows, you will get LOAD DRIVER option, you have to install Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver.   Please find below link to download Intel Rapid Storage Technology driver. http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=8323799&swItemId=wk_156996_1&swEnvOid=405... NOTE: THIS ACTIVITY NEED TO BE PERFORMED ON ANOTHER UNIT.   TO USE THE INTEL RAPID STORAGE TECHNOLOGY DRIVER DURING A NEW OPERATING SYSTEM INSTALLATION: 1. Download the file by clicking the "Download" or "Obtain Software" button and saving the file to a folder on your hard drive (make a note of the folder where the downloaded file is saved). 2. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions. 3. Navigate to C:\SWSETUP\SP73487 and unzip "f6flpy-x64.zip" to a USB key for a 64-bit installation. 4. Use the newly created driver installation media during operating system setup to install the drivers.  Once you copy the driver on another USB media, connect it with unit on which you are trying to install OS.  Click on Load Driver and navigate to USB and install the driver. Once the installation is complete, You will be able to access HDD and will be able to install OS.  I hope that answers your question.  I am an HP employee, the opinions expressed here are my personal opinions, not of HP. Make it easier for other people to find solutions, by marking my answer ?Accept as Solution? if it solves your problem. ***Click on "Thumbs up" button to the left side of my post to acknowledge the post ***

A:HP Z240 Tower Compatible with GeForce GTX970

Greetings, The 400 power supply could be an issue. A stock GTX 970 lists a recommended 500 watt power supply. You have to verify the 10.1 inch to 10.5 inch card will fit in your chassis. You should have the required UEFI BIOS if the system is brand new and you have a PCIe x16 3.0 slot available on the system board. Cheers!

It appears that newly shipping Z240 Tower workstations DO NOT have an internal USB header anymore?  The System Board Overview graphic in the Maintenance & Service Guide (Oct 2015) shows #7 as a USB 2.0 internal header.  However, the location where the header should be on the system board is actually a 1x6 pin header (P150) listed as "MEDIA".  The other USB 2.0 Header, #5, is taken up as the front USB cable. So is there an updated manual that shows what is actually on the system board?  The Z240 Tower QuickSpec is dated March 2016, so I'm hoping there is a newer manual out there somewhere.   Any idea what the P150 MEDIA header is for?  Is this for the old media card readers?  I have the optional SD card reader, but that is attached to #8 which is the internal USB 3.0 header. Any way to attach deveices that need an internal USB 2.0 header?

Hi all, I got a Z240 SFF workstation with a 512G HP Z Turbo Drive G2 intalled on M.2 slot as a boot drive. I recently add a 1.2T Intel 750 PCIe SSD on PCIe slot 4 for additional storage. However after the Intel 750 SSD was intalled, the computer began to shutdown automaticly after couple of minutes running. The issue will be fixed after remove the Intel 750 SSD. The system is running 64bit Win10, with Samsung NVMe Driver. The Intel 750 SSD can also be read and write when installed and Intel Data Center Tool shows that the SSD is healthy. I think the auto shutdown issue is related to overheating on 750 SSD. I am wondering if the motherboard of Z240 SFF is compatible with Intel 750 SSD. Does anyone have Intel 750 PCIe SSD installed on their Z240 SFF or any other Z Workstation? Thanks! NOS_ATX

When running an SCCM 2012 R2 task sequence to install Windows 10 on a Z240, the network driver is working in Windows PE during the download and apply Windows image. I'm using Auto Apply Drivers step and after it's completed, the computer restarts into the Windows 10 OS, tries to set up the devices and then the task sequence fails because there is no network driver detected that it can use. I've tried to import multiple types of network drivers from both HP and Intel with no success. I've tried to specifically apply the Z240 driver package instead of using Auto Apply Drivers with no success. I've also tried to install a Windows 8.1 image instead and it still fails at the same point. I'm confused because it works fine in PE, but not after restarting and booting into the Windows OS.

I felt a bit flush recently and bought 4 x 4gb ddr2 stick to upgrade my main PC. Just run a few things and its obviously better than my previous 4GB total however I noticed, for example, divx conversion only used 56MB of memory and there is still so much free.

Is this much memory a waste? If so I'll use half of it to beef up my WHS.

Should I fresh install W7?

Proc: Intel Core 2 E8400
Mobo: Intel DG45ID (16GB max ram).

A:16GB ram

Yes it is a waste. Really anything over 4gb is a waste for an average user. For a high power user 6-8gb is optimal. Most apps do not need that much memory to run efficiently and with how efficient Operating Systems are with memory management these days, it is overkill to have more than needed. I know I like to have the fastest and the best too, but I would suggest, like you said, put half of it in your WHS although WHS only needs about 512Mb to run and 1-2Gb is optimal. Really it is totally up to you. If you want bragging rights leave the 16 in if not split it up. You could even put 4gb in WHS and 12 in your PC.

Hi everybody!

I bought a new laptop and it has 1 stick of 4GB ddr3 1600.

I use my laptop for:
- Video editing (premiere pro, vegas, after effects)
- Games (GTA 4/5, Sims)
- Photo editing
- Music editing

I am just wondering if I should get another stick of 4Gb 1600 or buy 2 8GB 1600?

Is 16GB worth it? Or is it overkill? Because it's quite expensive.

If I buy 2 8GBs I will have a 4GB lying around unused.

Please give suggestions!
Thanks

A:8GB or 16GB RAM?

Also is 16GB 1333 or 8GB 1600 better? Which is faster?

Hi. I just bought a second-hand computer today. Anyway I was under the impression it had 16gb of ram. I found out in the control panel it says the computer has 8gb of ram.

Here's the ad: http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/paddington/desktops/full-spec-gaming-computer/1012071080

He said:
"2 x 8gb G.SkillDDR3-2133 RAM"

Am I wrong in assuming that means 16 total? Or does that somehow mean 8gb total?

I wanna know to decide whether i have a right to complain/ return it, or whether there was no false advertising on his part.

The memory is brand new, and working. It was recognized on Windows 8 on the same machine, and Speccy recognizes that there are 16GB from within XP as well.

Is there some trick to enabling support for more memory? I have tried using msconfig to increase the maxmem to 16gb but it would not let me increase it past 8156mb. I tried manually editing boot.ini to the same end but it did not work.

Hi guys, I am brand new to this forum.

Hi upgraded to Windows 8.1 (from Windows 7) a few days ago and I really love flight simulation. I have noticed that while I am playing Flight Simulator X, my computer in general starts to get pretty laggy (Moving windows, typing etc).

I have an i7 2600 (oc 3.9ghz), HD6780 and 16GB of ram installed. I opened up task manager to find that 7.4GB of ram is being used out of 8.5. But it says it is only using 47%!
I might be reading this all wrong, but I believe this is the reason why my computer's performance drops when I use close to 8.5 GB of RAM.

Thanks,
Nathan
EDIT: I have just looked in System Information and found this, it might be of use.

A:Only 8.5gb of RAM being used out of a total of 16gb

I opened up task manager to find that 7.4GB of ram is being used out of 8.5.



I have no idea how you get that. Task manager clearly shows that you have 16 GB RAM (actually 15.9) of which 7.4 GB is in use. That is very close to 47%.

From the display it seems quite clear that whatever problems you are having, RAM is not the cause.

A:upgrade to 16GB of RAM

See p. 42 of the Manual here: Manual The specs say your laptop came with 4 gigs, how does it now have 8? There are two slots and the Manual says it can take 12 gigs, a 4 gig module and an 8 gig module but we have figured out here it can take 16 gigs or 2 x 8. What you need to get kind of depends on what you already have. If you have a single 8 gig module I would try to find the same.  If you have 2 x 4 gig you have to replace them anyway and this is the specified 8 gig memory module:  8 GB memory module PC3L 12800 1600Mhz Shared 693374-001 for which this would be compatible: https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technology-1600MHz-PC3-12800-KVR16LS11/dp/B00CQ35HBQ/ref=sr_1_3?ie=U... One thing I will add is that many computer users are disappointed with the 8 gig to 16 gig upgrade. 8 gigs is a lot of memory and you may not even be using the entire 8 gigs so that upgrading will have very little effect on performance. But in your case the upgrade is easy to do and whether to upgrade is your call.

Hi Moldypoato and Welcome the Eight Forums
We have had this discussion so many times. Modern OS from Vista onward use all the ram to load the os and everything possible into it. Why have ram and have it empty when it is the fastest method of loading and unloading data. Superfetch loads stuff into ram. Programs you use often. Then they are ready right away. Don't fool with this as it will cause your computer to run slower and even crash with a BSOD

Hi everyone,

One of my friend asking me about would it be okay to put 16GB ram on HP DV6-6168tx notebook. I have no experience on how will it get along with the performance, so I need your opinions.

1) would it effect on performance of the notebook? I mean would adding that much of huge ram on DV6 will slow it down rather than giving more performance?

2) would it be unstable adding 16GB ram when running multiple vmware?

note :-
* notebook has I7 second gen proc, HD 6770M, 8GB 1333 DDR3 ram, intel HM65 or 67 chipset. cant remember. hp has mentioned it supports 16GB.

* he says that he needs this amount on purpose of running multiple virtual machines and for programming.

thank you. any suggestions welcome

If it was ok to run without a page file, I would think MS would shut it off upon sensing you have enough RAM, but they don't. It's just like they disable defrag when it senses you have an SSD.

So long story short I ended up getting an elitebook 8560w this week and it needs ram. Just wondering if I should get 8gb or 16gb. This is a do-everything-I-need-you-to-do laptop. I was shopping for a gaming rig but life intervened and now I need it to be a work machine I can use to demonstrations with...so no alienware! lol.

Ok, so the most taxing things I can think of doing with it would be:
- Running a movie on the 47" TV from it while doing work on laptop
- Playing some games, mostly Dota2, maybe some others but really just dota2.
- Dual monitor setup (triple if possible), for database management, not really system taxing other than having the 3 monitors to keep multiple windows open at the same time.

So does it make any sense getting 16bg or just go with 8gb?

A:HP elitebook 8560w 8GB or 16GB?

8 would be fine for most of that; but the 16 would be beneficial for development if that's what you're doing DB management-wise.

So today i received my replacement 4GB Module and at first it was saying 16 GB (12 GB usable) in System, I took all the ram out and reseated the 4 Modules and it showed 16GB in Bios and Memtest86 (which was fine)

Thing is now it says 16.0GB (15.0GB usable) in Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > System why is that? is it normal?

Thanks

Adam

Don't matter now, I decided to format, that seemed to fix it.

I am turning to the community to find out if anyone has installed 16GB of memory in their Y580. Lenovo's manual and website says that 8GB is the maximum supported, but some posts have indicated that it might support 16GB. I need to hear from someone who has actually tried 16GB of RAM in their Y580 as to whether it worked as this is the only thing holding me back from purchasing the Y580.












Solved!

Go to Solution.

A:Y580 16GB RAM Support

According to Crucial on their site the max is 8 GB for the Y580 And since Lenovo says the same,i would go with that. However i would be interested to hear otherwise.

Hello and welcome Absalom mate try a memtest first up maybe you have some bad sticks or slots even .

You need to make a bootable disk then set the BIOS to boot from the optical and then let it run for at minimum of 8 passes unless you get errors straight away see RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Just brought a xD card adapter for my Fujifilm F30. As I will be going to Melbourne and I would love to take some filming and things.

Yestersday I spoke with Jessop about this and she say inserting 16GB microsd with xd card would crash my camera. The only maximum size for my camera is 2GB

Is there way that I might could upgrade my firmwire of my camera this might accept higher size of card? It just that I cannot afford a new camera.

Tho if it had to be 2GB but I'm still happy with it as 2gb microsd are cheaper then xD

Howdy All!

I just upgraded from 8GB to 16GB RAM.
I have a 1M Page File set up on a secondary drive.
I use Acronis to do daily backups of my system.
I have a desktop Gadget that monitors CPU, Memory and Page File usage.
Memory usage has yet to hit 50% with all sorts of apps open at once.
For example, I run giants like Skyrim and other applications at the same time with no Page File usage. Zero. Nada.

Here's the question:

Can anyone explain to me in plain English why Acronis is the only program that still uses that Page File?

I don't get it...

TIA,

A:16GB RAM - Acronis still using a pagefile?!

Acronis (TrueImage?) probably uses the page file as temporary buffer space to compress the backup, or to restore it...

Hello!

I purchased one Satellite P50-B-11L that has 8GB of RAM memory.
I would like to add additional 8GB. I saw that the form currently mounted in black slot is a DDR3L (then operating at 1.35V correct?)
The problem is that the free slot (white) has recorded on the writing 1.5V
I must therefore buy a DDR3 (whitout "L" then 1.5V) for the white slot or not?

Thank for help,
Cristian

A:16GB RAM upgrade Satellite P50-B-11L

No one has ever asked this question?
Anyway, I put a DDR3L same as the original slot white my own risk. It works very well, fast and the BIOS detects 16GB. Perhaps the memory operates at 1.5V without problems because it has a tolerance, or the motherboard detects the memory DDR3L and lowers the voltage to 1.3V. I do not know!

I just checked Lenovo Solution Center (latest verson) and it now reports that the max capacity RAM for my machine (A Thinkpad X1, not carbon, late 2011 i7 model) is 16GB, which I always thought was 8GB!I was wondering if I could stick in a 16GB RAM module then. has anyone done this?All memory modules of this type are 12800 but from what I read online this is fine and teh RAM stick will just be downclocked to 10666. Hopefully someone tried this out and can give some advice. If the memory modules of this type were a bit cheaper I'd give it a try regardless, but I am hoping to hear some feedback.

Hi, From its specs: MEMORYStandardDDR3L-1600 (Transfer rates up to 1600 MT/s)*2 SODIMM (Core i5/i3); 1 SODIMM (Pentium/Celeron)Standard memory up to 8192MB  MaximumMaximum 1333 MT/s with BayTrail M Pentium (1.8 GHz, 1 MB cache) processor; Maximum 1066 MT/s with BayTrail MCeleron (1.86 GHz, 1 MB cache) processor.* Maximum memory speed supported is 1600 MHz, but it will be downgraded to 1333 MHz for systems running the E1-2100 and Pentium N3520 processors, and 1066 MHz for systems running the Celeron N2815 processor.NOTE: Due to the non-industry standard nature of some third-party memory modules, we recommend HP branded memory to ensure compatibility. If you mix memory speeds, the system will perform at the lower memory speed.*Maximum memory capacities assume Windows 64-bit operating systems or Linux.  Regards.
