I am currently using my Inspiron N5110 for a couple of years now and it has begun to go into it's limits at my work. I currently have 4 GB of RAM installed but I noted that I have a second RAM slot free still where I can install a second RAM chip and I could potentially go up to 16 GB
My question: what are the things I need to keep in mind buying a RAM? Specific types? And is installing RAM as simple as plugging the chip into slot? I was thinking of upgrading to 8 or 12 GB.
Thanks in advance!
Welcome to the Dell Community Forum.
I have checked the specification for your system :
A) Min/Max memory is 2048 MB / 8192 MB
B) Memory type is 1333 MHz DDR3
C) Number of Slots: 2
Ideally, the two memory modules should be identical and yes it’s just a plug and play device.
From the general specs on my laptop I read that my laptop could support up to 16 GB RAM. Why is it that you say the maximum is 8 GB (2x4GB)?
As per our specification the Max memory shows 8GB. Please find the link for further clarification http://dell.to/TjgXpv
Please share the link that you are referring to.
Do let me know if you have further queries.
