Could laptops that supposedly have max ram capacity go over the max with this trick?


Sep 2, 2010
I read this question and answer here - where someone asked if their HP Probook could handle more than the maximum memory - which according to HP is 4 GB (2 X 4GB) - here is the link that that question and answer

I then came across this alternative answer to the same question provided by a user on the HP support site - which says that they are running 16GB - see

Have anyone here tried something similar? Could it work?
It might work.
It might fail completely.

I'd only buy the extra RAM and try it if it was from somewhere with a 'no questions asked' return policy.
