17R LAPTOP MODEL 3737 MEMORY

Q: 17R LAPTOP MODEL 3737 MEMORY

Hi, I'm trying to find out just how much memory I can add to my laptop, it's Inspiron 17 model 3737, it has Kingston PC3L 12800S, 1600 MHz, 204 Pin, 4 GB install from dell and I was wanting to add 8 more GB to laptop to make it 12 GB, in reading thru some things on the computer it says it can support up to 16 GB of memory. But after reading in some of the forums people are saying that you can only add 4 more GB of memory.
I would hope some one out there can help me and tell me that yes 16GB is right, and just adding 8BG to have 12GB is fine,
Thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: 17R LAPTOP MODEL 3737 MEMORY

Hello, well I did some checking and to me it seemed I could add more than up to just have a total of 8GB of memory, so I ordered 1 stick of Kingston PC3L 12800, 1600 of memory the same brand of the 4GB memory the Dell 17r model 3737 came with, I wanted to stick with the same brand,So for the heck of it ordered and installed and well low and behold when I went in and checked system it is showing that I have 12GB of memory. So what it says of what I read on the computer was right, I can go up to 16GB if need be. But I think 12GB is more than enough memory for what I'm using my computer for, most web, and 2010 Office loaded like a champ with no problems. And is Duel Channel DDR3L SODIMM. So if anyone else is looking to up grade their memory look into your system and it will tell you.
But 30YEAREXPERT Thank you anyway for trying to help me and I do appreciate you time and help.

Thank you for your message. We will be glad to assist you.
How long have you been having this issue? Has there been any recent software changes like game or antivirus installation or Windows updates?
Disconnect the power cord, remove the battery press & hold down the power button for 30 seconds, this will remove the static. Connect the battery & power cord, start the computer by tapping F2 to get into BIOS & check if the issue persists here.
Run a hardware diagnostic by following this link http://bit.ly/2fJuGXB & check if there is an error message listed.
Try connecting an external monitor if available & check you see the band.

Hi HBHealing,
Welcome to Lenovo Community! And happy to have you here.
 
You can, ideally it's a good practise to use Memory Modules in pair like (4+4GB=8GB or 8+8GB=16GB) in total. But as said it will even work with 12GB Memory, thread with similar discussion. Memory specifications- 16GB max7 / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets
 
Note-Please remove your Serial Number from the post

Hi folks,

I have a:

Dell Inspiron 3737, Windows 10, 1.70gHz, 16GB RAM, 64-bit, Intel Core i3

. . . which is now out of warranty (purchased circa: 2 x years ago).

I am having a problem every time I try to START the machine (whether from battery or mains).  I have to hold down the POWER button until all of the (front) LED's turn off (which takes about 5 x seconds), and the press/hold the POWER button again until it boots up.

I read some threads and also watched a couple of videos on here.  I tried removing the BATTERY and holding down the POWER button (for 10 x seconds) to kill off any STATIC, but this has made no difference?!

I hope someone is able to advise accordingly.

Many thanks in advance . . .

Best,

Paul David Seaman (UK)

A:RE: Power Issue - Dell Inspiron 3737 (help?)

From the way that you describe it, it sounds like the notebook is not fully shutting down, but hanging at shutdown. So just pressing the power button doesn't do anything as the system is already turned on.  Holding down the power button until all the LEDs turn off forces the notebook to fully shut down and then you are able to power it back up again.   Does this seem correct to you?  Other than the shut down and start up process are they any other problems?
Press the Windows key with the X key and choose power options, and check what the power button is configured to do? Change it to turn off the notebook and press the power button to turn the system off. Does the system fully shut down or does it still have the problem?
As a test before shutting down hold down the shift key and click restart, in the following menu choose safemode. Allow the system to boot to safemode and shut the system down normally and does the notebook fully shut down from safemode?
If the notebook does fully shutdown from safemode try the task manager and msconfig to further troubleshoot. Start the system up to normal windows and press control alt delete and choose task manager.  In task manager take a look at the running programs and close them.  Once they are closed try shutting down the notebook and see if  the problem continues, if not and the system fully shuts down then you know it was one of the running programs causing the problem and you can try disabling half o...

A:Notebook model: 13-u105nl Memory and hdd Upgrade

The memory is upgradeable to 16 gigs of DDR4-2133 in 2 slots or 2 x 8 gig.  It can take an M.2 mSSD drive, but only as an alternative to a regular 2.5 inch hard drive. There is a single bay and port and which drive you install depends on the adapter used.  HP has not yet posted a Manual for the 13-u100 series but the Manual for the 13-u000 series is available and shows access to the M.2 slot and memory. Manual  See pages 42 and 56. Memory upgrade is particularly challenging as it requires removal of the motherboard.  Post back with any questions.  If this is "the Answer" please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.

A:B590 - Memory for Lenovo Model 59410449

Hi AC2000 ,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
Based on the product specification for this model , memory :
8GB max7 / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3, non-parity, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets; * System automatically clocks down for processors with 1333MHz memory controller 
 
This is the recommended Max memory supported for your model eventhou some processors can handle more (example : 15- 4310U handling 16 GB) since certain consideration are maintained by the systemboard and BIOS for full functionality and avoid non essential upgrades for users. 
 
Your 6 GB ram probably have 2GB and 4 GB (PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3) at the moment so you can simply match the a similar 4GB to max it to 8GB and be able to use dual channel synch for faster communication and transfer. 
 
Hope this helped answer your query. 
Update us what works best for you.

Hello all - first time poster on this forum.

I have a bust up fairly old Intel Celeron 600mhz laptop which could do with a new case/shell (not a bag, it needs the equivalent of a new desktop tower) but I don't know where to find one. I believe this is just a clone of similar laptops made around the same time and the model number is 6133. I was wondering if anybody knew somewhere I could purchase replacement shells/cases and if they stocked a case for this computer.

Everything on the laptop works fine except for a dodgy monitor cable (which would be fixed by moving everything into the new shell) so I don't intend to sell it for parts. I'm also quite experienced in fiddling with computers (my dad's a PC engineer so I've picked up quite a bit from him) and he is willing to help me get this laptop into tip top condition again.

I was also wondering if it would be possible to upgrade the motherboard and processor. At the moment it's a 600mhz intel celeron but I'd rather go with an AMD athlon of some sort as I believe them to be generally better. If anybody knows where I can purchase laptop motherboards to fit certain needs any help there would be gladly appreciated (am looking for a socket A motherboard). If the upgrade to Athlon is not possible I would like to know what the upgradability of my current motherboard is - I shall be looking inside the laptop within the next few days and can probably provide a number for it.

Howdy and welcome to the Forum.

Have you contacted the Manufacturer regarding replacement parts? That's where I would start.

BUT to be honest, although you do not give all the specs of the PC, I'd be willing to bet that you could replace the whole thing with a new laptop cheaper than replacing parts like case, MOBO, Processor, RAM, and HD !!!

So unless there is some "sentimental value", like the case broke stopping a bullet shot at you by terrorists...I'd shop for a new unit.

I am generally a Mac user, but wanted a PC to run a few apps I can't run on my Mac, and didn't want to partition my drive and use Boot Camp (I'd done this previously, and chose not to do it this time). A few days ago I purchased a Lenovo 110-15ISK laptop, model number 80UD0017US. I had been looking at an HP laptop, but read that it was not so user friendly when upgrading the RAM and hard drive, and passed on that one (for that specific reason), and saw this Lenovo in the local Best Buy on sale. I usually check things out pretty throughly before I purchase, but I have to admit, I didn't on this purchase. Although the laptop is nice, I was not pleased to find out that you pretty much have to disassemble half of the computer to be able to access the memory and hard drive. Not exactly what I was hoping for. Anyway, I've decided to leave the hard drive as is, since it's a 1TB (although I prefer SSD and upgraded my MacBook Pro to an SSD on day 1 and love it!). However, I definitely want to upgrade the RAM from 4GB. I was a little horrified to find out that the 4GB is soldered onto the motherboard, and that there's only one available slot for RAM. I've read up a bit on it, on both this forum and through Google and Bing searches, and it seems there are differing opinions on how much RAM this model can accept and still be stable. Some say it can take as much as a 16GB DDR4 stick bringing the memory up to 20GB, and some say that the max is a 4GB stick, bringing the RAM u... Read more

I have a Toshiba laptop - a Satellite A105-S4079 model. It's an older laptop, so the fan I want to replace is hard to find and expensive. Is there any way a different model fan could be used in its place? Perhaps just an A105 without having to match teh S4079 part? Or even a non-Toshiba fan altogether?

Problem is that although the computer starts up fine, after a few moments it shuts down. My sources tell me that it's almost certainly a fan issue, that to keep it from overheating it just shuts it down. I've seen the Youtube videos of what it takes to replace the thing, and I'm not confident enough in myself to take the entire computer apart to swap it out. But I don't want to pay full retail for a fan, either, that a repairman will charge. So I thought I see if I could just buy the fan myself at the cheapest rate, then get a repair guy to swap it out with me only paying a labor charge.

Btw, what kind of rate would I expect to pay for a laptop fan replacement? I have no idea.

Hi Everyone Sorry if I have put this in the wrong place but I struggled to find anywhere suitable to post a question like this. My girlfriend has purchased a pavilion 15 series laptop in blue, model number 15-au71sa. The laptop she received shows a model number 15-au71na and this appears to be the same laptop but why do they have difffernt model numbers? She hasn't booted it up yet as it may need to go back as were expecting to get 15-au71sa. What I  would like to know is why are there two separate model numbers and if these are two different laptops then what is the difference. Hp site does show both products but going through the specs they appear to be the same so why are there two separate model numbers? to me it just doesnt make sense. I have phoned  pc world, which is the  company we have purchased this from but they keep saying we can't find it on our website, and then they fob me off. I am hoping this is a simple question but if anyone has any ideas please let me know. THanks in advance.

A:2 model numbers for the same laptop?

Hi, Thanks for posting back. They actually are 2 different profucts: 1. HP Pavilion 15-au071na (ENERGY STAR)(W9V60EA):        http://www8.hp.com/uk/en/products/laptops/product-detail.html?oid=12237209#!tab=specs 2. HP Pavilion 15-au071sa (ENERGY STAR) (W9V61EA)      http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-15-au000-notebook-pc-series/10862158/document/c05204687 Looks like they are 99.9% the same and as mentioned on my previous reply, they are sold on 2 different markets in this case one from online store and one for normal shops. Regards.

Someone affiliated with my company borrowed and dropped my laptop for an event.  They would like to replace, but I am having trouble with finding today's equivalent of this model - M52346.  It's an ASPIRE - and I believe is 13.3 inches. I like it because it's light.  I don't want to soak the company for a deluxe model - I just would like to give them some examples of today's comparable models. Thank you!

A:Hi there, I have an ASPIRE laptop - model # M52346...

Hello, If you still "own" this laptop, could you give me the first ten characters of the computer serial number (S/N)? Only the first ten.
