No point in upgrading the RAM unless Windows is upgraded to 64bit version.

32bit version is only able to access aporoximately 3.5GB of RAM.

Yes, your laptop can be upgraded to 8Gb RAM, however you can only have two 4Gb DIMMs and not a single 8Gb. So you will need two 4GB DDR3 1066MHz, 204 pin SO-DIMM RAM sticks.

If the OS you are using is 32bit, you will need to upgrade it to a 64bit OS, otherwise your 8Gb won't be detected.

Thank you Alex so much for your quick and kind answer.

If I need to upgrade to 64 bits I would not know the steps into the 64 bits upgrade. Is something I can do without too much knowledge in computers ? I hope I will not be asking too much in a single day !!!

All the very best,



Hi, I'm looking into upgrading the memory in my r530 as well I would love to know whether the upgrade worked out as expected @fersan182.


Hi Julian, It works but do you have a 64bit version of Windows on your laptop?


I'm running ubuntu x64 right now. ;)


Que tal buenas, tengo el mismo equipo r530/730 y tengo ya 64bits y quiero ponerle los 8gb( actualmente tengo 6gb) cual pudiera ser la memoria que le pudiera poner, tengo una memoria extra Samsung 4 GB 1rx8pc3l-12800s, me funcionaria esta memoria?
