I am upgrading my laptop, and after consulting the user manual, it states the maximum ram capacity is 2GB, but according to
$ dmidecode -t 16, the maximum I can get is 4GB, so, can I trust dmidecode over the oem? And would it support 4GB, or just max out at 2GB and have the remainder as hardware reserved?
