I have bought A dell inspiron 15 3542 . it has 4 GB of ram, but I want to install an 8 GB ram. I am using windows 8.1 64 bit .
The question is if I install a 8 gb ram will it work? I mean will at least 7 GB will remain usable? currently out of 4GB 3.91 is usable which I believe is normal.

Yes, though there is only one memory socket - so you must replace the 4G with an 8. You MUST use DDR3L memory (DDR3 1.5V will not work).
Is the below Kingston DDR3L Model is compatible for Dell Inspiron 3542. Please advise.
Kingston Technology 8GB 1600MHz DDR3L (PC3-12800) 1.35V Non-ECC CL11 SODIMM Intel Laptop Memory KVR16LS11/8
