Inspiron 15 (3542) max ram support

Jump to solution

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).

Now that 16 GB chips are shipping, has anyone tried one of them in this model?
