Dell N5110 i7 Model Ram Upgrade

Isn't there any way to upgrade to 16GB ram on n5110 inspiron (intel hm67 chipset) model?

Why is the max ram is limited to 8GB?

Re: Dell N5110 i7 Model Ram Upgrade

The motherboard chipset, CPU and BIOS determine how much ram can be used and what type of ram can be installed. However according to specifications of your laptop it should support 16gb. However in this case the BIOS has probably been limited to 8gb. This is not uncommon for laptops.

It is also a function of the operating system.  WIndows 7 Home Basic is limited to 8G (64-bit), while Home Premium has a 16G limit.  7Pro/Ultimate/Enterprise have much higher RAM limits.

Yeah but for this question the operating system is irrelevant in this case because he would not have windows 7 home basic lol

Hi prabuddha.Hendawitharana,

The maximum memory supported by Inspiron N 5110 is 8GB irrespective of the BIOS version.

Please reply if you have any further questions.

Thanks and Regards,
