R6500 RAM upgrade quick question

Jump to solution

Hi. I know that the E6500 is listed as max 8gb. is that because of OS limits or the chipset or other? I have 8gb already and wanted to go to 16gb if I could.I am running Windows 7 64 bit as the OS. Thanks.

Hi Jay,

The Windows 7 64-bit Operating System supports more that 8GB, however the Intel GM45 Express Chipset in the Latitude E6500 supports a maximum of 8GB RAM. Hence, the memory cannot be upgraded to 16GB.

Please let me know if you need further information.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi, I was wondering if there is anything that can be done to my Latitude E6500 to get it to accept 16gb of RAM.
