Swift SF314-54-33C7 RAM memory upgrade not working.

Hi, 
I tried to update my Swift SF314-54-33C7 laptop ram. I purchased a Crucial 8GB DDR4-2666 Sodimm memory. But when inserting the memory the laptop wont even open when powering it on. Before I purchased I checked on the Crucial site and it say that 100 percent the memory would work on my laptop.

Do anyone have try to upgrade Swift SF314-54-33C7 with this type of memory?

Please advise.
Thanks.

    RAM 2666 is not supported on this model.
    It is limited to a maximum of 2133 by the processor and chipset.

    Good Evening carlosaragena04 !

    This model supports up to 12Gb of RAM (4GB being integrated with the motherboard and a single slot for expansion of up to 8Gb, ie 4 + 8 = 12) DDR4


    Use CPUz to identify your installed one.

    Thanks for the reply, MaClane..

    That was I thought also based on the specs. But unfortunately whenever I inserted the new Crucial 8GB DDR4-2666 on the motherboard ram memory slot then tried to power it on. The laptop would not open and the screen has no display at all. That why I can't run the CPUz when the ram is in.

    I will try to run CPUz  with the build in mb 4gb ram. I will try to post it here.

    Hi, run the CPUz tools with the build in memory only and here's what I got.


    Checking the SPD for Slot 1 and 2. both has no value.

    Thanks, MaClane. Now I know, I should have checked it first on this forum before I purchased the ram. Crucial compatibility site should correct their site wrong info.

    Crucial is just a tool (which many trust but don't understand how it works) as a raw data collection base.
    He widely considers any series but does not take specific models into account.
    In other words ... a bunch of raw data that actually needs to be analyzed by users before reaching a conclusion.
