Re: How much physical RAM can a laptop hold?

Dear Keith & List:


Contact HP. Give them your laptop model and serial number. They can advise how much RAM it can use.


I upgraded this laptop from eight to 16 GB, does not seem to speed it up much but should.

Depending upon the age of your laptop, it may be advisable to scrap it and buy a new one.


Have a Dell Mobile Workstation I loaded up with 64 GB of RAM. Figure that should let it survive several updates to Windows without running out of RAM.

Subject: [TechTalk] How much physical RAM can a laptop hold?



How can I go about figuring out how much physical RAM my HP laptop can hold? I know the motherboard determines this, but do not know how to find this information out.

Currently, my laptop is very, very slow, as a member of this group can attest to (we connected to each other's computers through a tandem feature and he even commented on the slowness.

This makes learning Jaws and windows 10 very frustrating and tedious.

Thanks for any info
