Inspiron 13 7000 & 32GB RAM?

I purchased this configuration and wonder if it can be upgraded to 32GB RAM:

  • Inspiron 13 7000 Series (Intel) - 7378
  • 7th Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-7500U Processor
  • 16GB Single Channel DDR4 2400MHz (16GBx1)

The service manual @



The Inspiron 13-7378 has two SODIMM (RAM) slots, which are accessible by removing the base cover.

So, there are two slots: one is occupied with a 16GB SODIMM and the second is empty.

The manual also says

Your computer supports 4 GB, 8 GB, 12 GB, and 16 GB dual-channel DDR4 memory of up to 2133 MHz.

I read this as "16GB DDR4 memory can be used." But, I wonder if Dell means "the total capacity of the computer is 16GB."

According to


the CPU supports up to 32GB RAM.

Question: has anyone installed a second 16GB SODIMM, to increase the notebook's memory to 32GB?
