L501X RAM

Jump to solution
Hi, got a L501X XPS laptop - 3 years old at least and really wanted to know what the MAX RAM I can install is. Some doubt on net. Mine is the M460, 2.53 Ghz with Win 7 Premium. I'm hoping to install 16gb but I fear the max is 8. Thanks for your help.

Hi xiuxiuejar22,

You are right the maximum Ram that can be installed on the XPS L501X laptop is 8GB.

It has to be a DDR3 1066/1333 MHz SODIMM memory.

Please let me know if this helps.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi xiuxiuejar22,

It will surely make a lot of difference since you are increasng it from 4GB to 8Gb. I would suggest you to go for the DDR3 1333MHz (Faster transfer rate) SODIMM ram.

Please do reply back with the status.

That's what I feared, Thanks for the help. Would increasing from 4 to 8gb make a lot of difference? Is there any preference to which DDR3 1066/1333 MHz SODIMM ram or is any fine? 1.5 volts or lower is my guess. Thanks again.
