Supposedly the limit of extra ram I can put into it is 4gb ddr3 1600mhz. It already had 8gb ram, I bought a 4gb ddr3 1600mhz ram, opened the back and saw one of those already sitting in there, it was put in by the manufacturer. So I may or may not have wasted my money on it, however I want to know if there is any chance to increase the ram at all.

Or is there any change I can allocate gpu ram for regular use? I don't need 2gb gpu ram.

But if it doesn't work I'll end up with about $100 of now worthless 4+8 gb external ram. Is there a kind of place which would just let me try it?

Also how likely/unlikely is it that this will work? Why would a laptop have such a constraint in the first place?

Its purely a motherboard resttriction. Different laptop motherboard support different amounts of RAM. So have you actualy bought the RAM yet? Or are you thinking about buying it?

I was told that I could add 4gb, so I bought it. But when I opened the back of the laptop, I found the extra slot already filled with another 4gb.

So then you have already bought the RAM. If it lets u have 8 gigs RAM in your laptop thats good. But if it doesnt work, then just return it. What would you do with it anyway if you have already bought it?
