    Dell G7 - Possible to leave 1 RAM slot empty?


    Hi, folks. *Smile

    (Feeling much older these days) guy here who has been away from Windows PC upgrades for several years; asking for confirmation before I buy RAM for my little nephew. Nephew has a Dell G7 15” 7588 laptop that needs an upgrade from 8 GB RAM (2 x 4 GB DDR4-3200 SODIMM modules installed).

    RAM & SSD Upgrades | Dell Dell G7 7588 | Crucial.com

    The system can max out at 32GB RAM. I’m considering buying 1 x 16 GB module instead of 2 x 16 GB modules (to max out his system). If so, ...
    1. Will the system work with 1 x 16 GB module + 1 x 4 GB module?
    2. Will the system work if I install 1 x 16 GB module and leave the other bay empty?

    As always, your input is much appreciated!

    :)
     

  2. Ram slot

    Greetings my friend. Like 'Mike P', my dell has only two slots as well. There are several laptops that have four (4) ram slots. Lenovo, ASUS, some HP's and some dell's. I would suggest going to a website like newegg.com, or other computer accessory place,
    and looking at their memory/ram selections. Reading their details should provide some insight as to the number of slots.

    Of course, if your budget allows, the more ram you have, the better the laptop will be.

    I hope this helps.

    Derek

    Possible dead RAM slot???

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.

    I will inspect the slot and clean. If that don't work, I'll have to RMA.

    What do you suggest cleaning the RAM slot with?
