When I looked it up it said my computer will only support 4gb of memory but I ordered 2x8gb of RAM to install. Will it still work? I have a Toshibe Satillite c650 I believe. Edit: Would it be worth it to just buy a new motherbord or computer that can handle the ram? I want to use it but don't to have to spend more than I have to. Any help with this would be Nice.

    If you read the manual of that laptop and the maximum RAM it can handle it's 4GB, you can't go against the rules. – CaldeiraG May 14 at 12:24

    There are a lot of models of C650 so you are going to need to be specific about your system specifications. In general though your maximum memory is limited by your CPU as well as how your motherboard is designed. It is entirely possible that you might be able to use 8GB, or only 4GB or the memory you ordered might not work at all. – Mokubai May 14 at 12:29

    "Will it work?" - it might... "Will it show 16 GB RAM?" - not likely. – Attie May 14 at 12:42

    It might...? No, not really. It won't even recognize modules of that size. As answered, it supports up to 2x2GB. – GabrielaGarcia May 14 at 12:58

The maximum RAM a Toshiba Satellite C650 can handle is limited by its Mobile Intel GL40 Express.

It supports up to 4GB DDR3 RAM in a 2x2GB configuration.
