Dell XPS 14 L421X 16GB Memory Upgrade - Possible?

Hello,

Long time Dell user with a 2014 Dell XPS 14 L421X.
I'm hoping to give the laptop new life by replacing the current 1x8gb ddr3l with a 1x16gb ddr3l stick. On the laptop's manual, it lists that this model only supports 4gb and 8gb.

Does anyone have any recommendations/advice about upgrading this model's RAM from 8gb to the unofficially supported 16gb? I'd sincerely appreciate a good answer.

Cheers.

The system supports a maximum of 8G of RAM.  That's the best answer you can get.

blaze5059,

To reiterate what "ejn63" stated in his post about the 8 gigs of  memory in this computer.

 XPS L421X/14 has 1 SODIMM memory slot which supports DDR3 DIMMs at 1333 MHz or 1600 MHz. XPS L421X/14 supports a maximum of 8 GB system memory. 

There is no documentation that I can find that suggest that it can support 16 gigs of memory unofficially.
