Aspire A515 51G - 58GZ

Ren4zeRen4ze Posts: 4Member New User
I already bought acer Aspire A515 51G - 58GZ 8Gb variant, when checked deeper, i just got 1 slot Ram and 8Gb installed, but there is no soldered ram at motherboard, but i have only 1slot, it cant be set into dual channel, is it true if acer a515 51g 58gz 8gb variant only support single channel memory?

    Some models are shipped with a motherboard without 4GB on-board memory. You can easily check the motherboard serial number with Power Shell:
    Type this command: wmic baseboard get serialnumber
    Yours should be started with NBGPC11007...

    Good Morning Ren4ze !

    Properly check your machine because by the service manual, this model supports up to 20Gb DDR4 1866 / 2133Mhz and 4Gb are integrated into the motherboard.
    So you can install on the single slot up to 16Gb RAM.
    Use CPU-z to check if they are running on dual-channel

    Yes, you re right, MB said NBGPC11007 . . . 
    Is it motherboard really has only 1 slot? Or 2 slot?   Do i have to open back case? For second slot ram?

    Hello,
    I don't know but you could check it by removing the Ram door:

    Hello,

    It only has 1 slot  in that 😌, so i think this laptop only capable of single chnnel mem.  Thanks for the answer 😀
