Adding more RAM

Hey guys,

I have a question, I'm trying to add more RAM to my laptop but some thing is going wrong.

My laptop is Dell Inspiron N4030, current memory is DDR3 2GB, running on windows 10 and the RAM which I bought is 2 4GB DDR3 ram 1333 MHz. I'm not sure if it's something to do with Windows 10. but when I install the new RAM the windows doesn't start up. 

Thanks in advance.

RE: Adding more RAM

Hi Mouaz

Thanks for writing to us. 

N4030 supports a max of 6 GB memory below are the combinations you can use.

Slot ASlot BTotal Memory
1024 MB None 1024 MB
1024 MB 1024 MB 2048 MB
2048 MB 1024 MB 3072 MB
2048 MB 2048 MB 4096 MB
4096 MB 1024 MB 5120 MB
4096 MB 2048 MB 6144 MB

Try with one 4gb memory module at at time and check if they work individually. Now try the new 4gb and old 2gb memory module. If they work, well and good, if they don't then rollback to previous windows as we see this model is not tested for windows 10.

Please do send us your system tag# and email address via private message.
