I have this laptop from 2009
- STUDIO XPS 16 : INTEL CORE 2 DUO T9900(3
- MEMORY : 4096MB (2X2048) 1067MHZ DDR3 DU
As you see, it comes with 2 modules of 2gb 1067MHZ DDR3. Now I have searched in the documentation here http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/sxl16/en/index.htm
so it seems that it supports 8gb ram. but a single 4gb seems unsupported?
When I insert the two 4gb ddr3 1066mhz modules the disable sound button is on and the increase volume button is on and the decrease volume button is blinking. the system does not boot. With the old memory, it boots.
So is 8gb ram possible? or not? a lot of websites (which sell ram) say that the xps 1640 can have 8gb ram.
