It depends on which model 15R you have.  Some are 8G, some 16.  What's the full model number (i.e., Inspiron 5520, 5720, etc.)?

Hi bar_budo,

Inspiron 5720/17R has 2 SODIMM memory slots which support:

  • DDR3 DIMM at 1333 MHz with Sandy Bridge Processors
  • DDR3 DIMM at 1600 MHz with Ivy Bridge Processors

Inspiron 5720/17R supports a maximum of 8 GB system memory with 4 GB memory in each slot. The memory you have shared is a single 8GB memory and might not work with the system.

For installing/replacing memory, you may refer to owner's manual Here.

Hope this helps. 

Thanks & Regards,
Sundeep B

I want to upgrade to 16GB on my Inspiron 17r 5720... it seems unsupported by your answer? why?

Same situation for me. Apparently, 16 gigs are not supported. I though the limitation came from 32 bits. but now I have 64 bits windows 10.
