Bought a new laptop, Vivobook x512FA, I need to know if my preinstalled 4GB RAM is x8 or x16 because I want to buy another bank of RAM, how can I know that?

  • It would be in the documentation of the system. – music2myear May 15 at 23:40
  • Look at the sticker on the RAM stick. It will say 1RX8, 2RX8, 1RX16 or 2RX16 on it. If it doesn't have a sticker, count the chips on it. 4 chips = x16. 8 chips = x8. – DrZoo May 15 at 23:59

    Open the back of your laptop and tell us what the model number of the ram is. – Sickest May 16 at 2:33
  • The problem is that the preinstalled RAM is hidden somewhere, and I don't want to damage nothing. Here is a pic ibb.co/vPNggBk I think is under that black plastic thing at the bottom-right, but is it possible that if I unmount that I will have to reapply the thermal paste? – MA.SE May 17 at 15:34
