Which ram?

Gianpa
 Share

Hi there, I'm new, I was wondering if you could help me.

 

I have a gaming laptop, MSI GE62VR with 8gb of RAM and I would like to upgrade it to 16. How do I know which type of RAM its already installed? Can I just buy a 8gb ddr4 module and put it in or does it have to be the same brand? Do I have to buy 2 8gb modules from scratch instead? As you can tell, I'm a bit confused 9_9

Can work with different brands, but get the same speed/CAS timings if possible.

And make sure it's SODIMM.

Try to buy the same brand and model/speed if possible. You can find some compatible sticks here:

Obviously you might not have Crucial memory but it can give you a starting point :)

Just take out the one module you have, check the speed, like DDR4 8GB 2133 MHZ    then just pick another module any brand with same MHZ speed and you should be fine.

Is there a way to know without opening the laptop?

Download cpu-z and you'll be able to find out what model it is.

Try this

In free mode covers up things randomly, if it covers something you need to know, just exit and restart it.  It's random in the hope you buy it :).  I have/ did buy it.
