Hey guys, wanted to ask some strange question. So my roommate upgraded his laptop ram (1 slot) from 4 GB to 8GB. Task manager shows that it's 12 GB with one 8gb stick how is that possible? CPU-Z shows one stick of ram so where other 4gb coming from? How is that possible? He says that there was no ram when he placed it his new one.

ok, so it's integrated somehow, didn't even know that was a thing. But for example, my laptop says it has 2 slots(CPU-Z, task manager) but when I look up inside, it has only 1 slot, crucial site says the same thing for Asus x552MD so where is the missing slot?

my craptop has 2 slots technically as well, but they only support the one... shucks
