XMP Memory Modules and Inspiron 15-7590 Compatibility

Recently purchased an Inspiron 15-7590 and a set of Kingston DDR4 Impact XMP dual channel kit (16GB x2). When both modules are installed, the laptop would not turn on, and I also tried installing a single module in slot A or B, still no sign of life!

A quick search online showed that this compatibility issue has been discussed before with other Dell laptops.

Is this ever going to fixed via a BIOS upgrade?

Re: XMP Memory Modules and Inspiron 15-7590 Compatibility

Just upgraded from BIOS version 1.2.0 to version 1.4.0 ..... the Kingston D4-2666 Impact modules still don't work!!!

The LED on the side of the TB3 port blinks orange twice and white three times, and the blinking repeats itself till the system powers off on its own!

Upon reboot, a screen message says something like "Memory not detected on last boot" or something. 

I did notice the memory module that came with the system has a spec of DDR4-2666 @ CL19  and the Kingston Impact modules I'm trying to upgrade has a spec of DDR4-2666 @ CL15.

Is the low memory latency not supported?

Just installed the Kingston Impact D4-2666 XMP memory modules into a friend's HP 15 laptop that has a Core i5-8250U CPU, the 32GB kit (16GB x2) booted into Windows 10 without a glitch!!!

 

DELL definitely needs to work on RAM compatibility issues!!!

Re: XMP Memory Modules and Inspiron 15-7590 Compatibility

Got a Kingston 8GB DDR4-2666 CL19 memory module and it works just fine ...

I reckon if XMP spec modules don't work, Dell should make a note of it in the user manual instead of just specifying the memory module capacities 8GB/ 16GB/ 64GB!

Or was there a memory module compatibility list that I missed ....

Re: XMP Memory Modules and Inspiron 15-7590 Compatibility

I have same problem with HyperX 32GB (2x16GB) 2666MHz CL15 Impact Black. Inspiron 7590 Core i7-9750H doesn't start, only LED blinking that indicated no memory 😞

I'm searching for other RAM now. Does anybody know if for example this module will work fine?


SAMSUNG 16GB DDR4 2666MHz CL 19 (M471A2K43CB1-CTD)

No, not really ...

Don't think DELL is keen on bringing XMP module support for our Inspiron laptops.

I just went with standard Kingston modules and they worked fine.

I sold my XMP modules to a colleague and installed them into his HP laptop running a i5-8250 and they worked right off the bat!

The Kingston module's make and part numbers are ...

DD4 2666 8G KCP426SS8/8 

I bought my in Taiwan though, so I'm not sure if it's different in other parts of the world.

Please do check with a local dealer to confirm compatibility.
