Yes what the above chap said. You have one slot and you have 1x 8GB stick or is it a 4GB stick? So long your using a x64 OS you should not have any issue like this. Im sure the laptop support up to 16GB of RAM. So if it has one slot its not only working in single channel but that stick has to be a 8GB stick can you confirm please.✝🎗💯👶
