If you're upgrading from a normal SSD, that SSD is still SATA III, you need to get a M.2 NVMe drive.

Use https://www.mrmemory.co.uk/

Download the system scanner, run the software and you'll see what memory upgrades are available. Some older laptops don't support more than 12gb ram

Mr Memory will display the maxium ram supported and other information.

32gb max

Upgrade RAM to at least 8GB and add a M.2 SSD (a good SATA model will do)


Feel free to ask for recommendations if you're looking for a new lappy!

Yes, but it will run in Flex mode (partial dual channel), not full dual channel
