Hello guys, in this video i will show you how to extend your memory to 16gb and still get a functional with good performance laptop. This is a normal booting with 8gb ram and you can see how fast is. (i am using a ssd but you probably figured out that). Now i am adding one more 8gb RAM memory, getting 16gb in total. Turning on the laptop with 16gb ram installed. and getting the surprise… …and waiting… and waiting…waiting… as you can see, no hdd activity at all… freeze logo, nothing happens…so shut down. we will remove one of the memories installed, we will keep only 8gb and start the laptop normally for doing a little trick…(as you can see, it starts in seconds now) Here is the trick: in msconfig, boot, advanced options -> we will set a maximum memory allowed to 8192mb (8gb), saving and shut down.(sorry for that screen with the graphic card) we will insert again the second 8gb ram memory and we will start the laptop. it starts normally, because only 8gb ram are readable now after we set that previously. we will acces again msconfig-boot-advanced options-and we will set the maximum memory to 16gb. everything must be saved and a reboot it's required. that's it. you now have 16gb memory installed and functional and no more operations are required. you can see that it shows all the memory, after the reboot which was just fine. Thank you!
