I want to upgrade the RAM in my Lenovo Ideapad FLEX 14-IWL (mtm # 81SQ0008US). Task manager shows as 1 of 2 slot used, but Lenovo says there is only one slot, and maximum ram is 32 for it. I am not sure what is correct.


The manufacturer is correct.

Many controllers may provide multiple slots - that being what the software identifies - but that does not mean they're always physically installed and/or user accessible.

  • Pages 37-38 of the Hardware Manual (linked in your question) shows there's only one memory module slot. Evidently Lenovo reused a chip from another design which had two memory module slots on it, but this Ideapad only has one physical slot. – K7AAY Nov 19 '19 at 19:48
