My Lenovo Laptop won't read/install my newly installed RAM

 Share

What I have is a Lenovo Flex 2 (14 inch) Laptop with a core i5-4210U CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 64-bit windows 8 but I wanted to add more RAM in it so I took one of my old ASUS laptops and took 4GB to add to my current Lenovo laptop but it won't read/install it. Why?

i5 4210U only supports DDR3L 1333/1600 and LPDDR3 1333/1600 sticks. 
If your stick is 1033mhz or 1866mhz it's not going to work.

Also might be having a hard time trying to dual-channel the 2 mismatched sticks.

*bought for $200 CAD off a friend who needed an RTX 3080, price was my reward.

CASE: InWinn A1 Plus in White with included 600w gold sfx PSU and included custom length cables

DISPLAY: 3x 20" AOC 1080p 60hz 4ms ,  32" RCA 1080p/60 TV mounted above, all on a single arm.

 

Storage: C : 1TB WD Blue NVMe      D : 2TB Barracuda      E: 240GB Kingston V300 (scratch drive)

Thank you for taking the time for answering my problem, I'm just an ICT student and most of my tech knowledge actually came from Linus so I really appreciate this response I will come back on this thread once I have an update.

I was able to find a 4GB DDR3L 1333 RAM but now the problem is the laptop won't turn on.

To be more specific I do here the fan turn on and it does heat up (Indicating it does take power) but there is no display or any kind of response. I have tried to do a hard reboot and removed the battery but it still does not work.

Edit: NVM the RAM that I found was a DDR3 , apperantly there is a difference.
