I have msi ge60-0nc-037tr laptop using windows 7 when i check the model of my motherboard

wmic baseboard get product,Manufacturer,version,serialnumber

return MS-16GA model motherboard when i check max capacity of that motherboard from internet it say max 8gb ram supported. sources: https://www.memorystock.com/memory/MicrostarIntMS16GA.html https://www.userbenchmark.com/System/MSI-MS-16GA/503#Compatibility

But https://www.msi.com/Laptop/GE60_0NC/Specification says my laptop support max 16 gb ram.

I scan my laptop with https://www.crucial.com/usa/en/systemscanner it also say i have 16gb support. So which way is correct to check max ram capacity of laptop ?

  • Welcome to SuperUser! What do you mean "when i check the internet"? You posted two links that you said say the same thing. – HazardousGlitch Nov 25 '19 at 17:49
  • İ mean when i check ms-16GA moterboard max capaticy of ram it say 8gb – tuna bolat Nov 25 '19 at 17:50

The manufacturer is always right. Crucial is also a highly credible source of memory information. Never heard of MemoryStock, so since they disagree with both MSI and Crucial, I'd think they had the wrong info.

  • Yeah i feel like that but my model is really old even for msi Ge60 models and it special product for Turkey i belive.I see turkish post for review of exactly same model of mine it also say max capacity is 8gb.I dont want to waste my money for not working 16gb rams :d (sorry for bad english) – tuna bolat Nov 25 '19 at 18:20
  • I would always believe the manufacturer before believing a third party. – HazardousGlitch Nov 25 '19 at 18:23
  • yeah thx for answer guys.Cpu-z also show same chipset with msi spesification.It is black friday here i am going to buy the rams – tuna bolat Nov 25 '19 at 18:31

You usually have two Slots for RAM in today's laptops If you open the cover, on the bottom of the laptop, where the RAM is, the slot is below the upper stick to place more RAM in. Each should hold 8 GB each.

From your Post:

DDR3 1333/1600MHz, 2 slots, Max. 16GB
