I've purchased 2x8gb TEAM TED38G1333C9-SBK memory banks and managed to install them but my notebook failed to boot (4 BIOS beeps). After some research I found that this model supports max 8 GB (2x4) unless Sandy Bridge i5 cpu should work fine with 16. After second try the system have been running successfully for one day with 16 GB but then failed to boot again (after hibernation). Has anyone upgraded his dell 3350 to 16 gb (I found few success stories on internet)? Is DELL planning to make BIOS update to fix this issue? Any useful information will be appreciated.
My system appeared the same thing being that I have Dell Vostro 3550, but I don't trust in this software (i don't know why)
Dell Vostro 3550 - i5 - 2410M - AMD Radeon HD 7650M - 8GB DD3 RAM - 500GB 7200 RPM - Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
I can fly with this model.
This computer model has been tested with maximum 8 GB memory. I have forwarded the information provided by you with the screenshot to the team concerned.
Meanwhile, I have mentioned the link for the manual to check the maximum memory supported by this computer model http://dell.to/Ro5tM1
To check the maximum memory supported click View(Owner's Manual) > Specification.
Thanks & Regards
I also own a vostro 3550 and in my manual it's written a maximum memory of 8gb... Is that different with yours and is it possible to install 16gb of RAM on a vostro 3550?
