6GB is the maximum capacity on Dell Inspiron 14 N4030. If you try to put 8GB, it might not read the extra 2GB or might not even work. I wouldn't go beyond the compatible Ram Capacity.

Dell Latitude has 2 slots supporting maximum of 1gb, 2gb or 4gb DIMMs so adding 8GB ram is incompatible and the computer won't recognize it.

Hi
Yes, you can install an 8GB stick into 1 RAM slot to reach the maximum amount of RAM. I don't think there's a limitation on how much 1 slot can handle as long as it doesn't exceed the motherboard RAM capacity. However, having duel channel as 2x4GB RAM installed is more beneficial than 8GB single channel in which it doubles the bandwidth of memory so ideally it's faster to have 2 sticks of RAM.

Dell Inspiron 14 N4030 Laptop supports 2 x 4GB.

6GB is in the configuration of 2GB = 4GB.

So you can remove 2GB stick and replace with a 4GB stick for max memory.

Similarly the Dell Latitude E5520 also supports 2 x 4GB.

The HP Pavilion g4-2204tx supports 2 x 4GB as well.

It does not mean that you can try 8GB stick in slot. It won't work. All of these three models support only upto 4GB stick on each slot. 8GB stick to work on these laptops are unheard of. Very few laptops have been able to work with more than the specified maximum.

You can cross-check with other sites like crucial, memoryx.

They all provide almost accurate information regarding memory upgrades
