Regarding Maximum installable RAM capacity on my HP Pavilion G6 AMD A10 Notebook


I have bought a HP Pavilion G6-2313AX Laptop with AMD A10 quad core processor, 6 GB RAM, 2.5 GB ATI/AMD Graphics card and 1 TB hard disk.

The laptop is based on the socket FP2 (904) chipset.

Right now, I have only two RAM DIMM slots and HP has installed one 4 GB RAM in slot one and 2 GB RAM in slot 2.

I would like to know from this forum whether my chipset will support two 8 GB RAM DIMM's so that I can have 16 GB RAM in my laptop.

Please respond to this question as soon as possible.

Thanks and Regards,

Doesn't look like it.  All information I can find states that the largest DIMM supported is 4GB.  With two slots available that puts the max RAM at 8GB.

Crucial doesn't show that model number, but they show a g6-2313sf, which I presume is a small form factor version.   It shows a maximum module size of 4GB ... so the best you could do is replace the 2GB module with a 4GB module for a total of 8GB.
i agree with the above, the specs say 8 GB Max.
But you're free to try an 8 Gb stick  (in some pc's it works ok, in some not)
Whenever it isn't clear whether a PC will actually take a RAM module or not, I take it to a shop which sells PC's and ask them whether I can try it out in their shop. They usually help for free. Sometimes I have even been allowed to "borrow" the modules and take them home to try there (if it was a desktop which couldn't easily be taken to the shop)! I suggest you try that.

If you have access to an appropriate 8GB module, it certainly won't hurt to try it.   I have seen several cases where a system will accept more RAM than the manufacturer's specs indicate.
