Upgrading RAM for Dv6-3206AX? Maximum supported RAM

Hi all

I am in need to upgrade my memory of's laptop (DV6-3206AX). At the present time it is 4 GB and I thought to upgrade to 16 GB.

The reason for this upgrade is, I work as a developer and use many technologies and software requiring a huge memory tell SharePoint, SQL Server, DMS systems. I tend to play with these technologies on my laptop and of course to learn and build solutions. Now 2013 SharePoint requires more memory, I would need to increase the memory of my laptop.

My concern, I am not sure weather my laptop wouldn't support 16 GB or not? If so, then this high memoery would result in additional heating.

Configuration of the laptop

  • AMD Phenom II N970 (4 c, 2.20 GHz/4 x 512 KB / 3.6GTs)
  • 4 GB RAM DDR3
  • DVD +/-RW double layer with LightScribe drive
  • 15.6-inch HD (1366 x 768) LED backlit BrightView
  • AMD Radeon HD 6550 (discreet, dedicated 1 GB)
  • 10/100/1000 LAN, 802.11 b/g/n WLAN
  • Dolby Digital Audio Advance with speakers Altec Lansing, Webcam, media card reader
  • 1 x HDMI, 1 x VGA, 3 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB/eSATA, 1 x RJ-45
  • AC adapter, battery, power cord
  • (Windows 7 Home Premium pre-installed) Windows 8 Professional upgrade.

Any person who has knowledge or have already tried on similar systems, share your experience.

Thanks in advance.

  • Upgrade memory for Satellite U200: are supported with 667 mhz modules?

    I am a new user and I'm on a Toshiba Sat U-200-115. I want to upgrade, and I intend to do an upgrade to 4 GB.

    What I want to know, although it said this laptop supports the upgrade to 4 Gig, but this model use a DDR2 533 MHz memory. Considering that since the Web from Toshiba site, I see only 1 slot memory of Gig available with this clock speed and a 2 Gig DDR2 available with clock speed of 667 MHz. What I want to know, if I want to upgrade to 4 GB memory with clock speed more high clock (667 instead of, 533) would work on this machine?

    Thank you.


    It depends on the chipset of your Satellite U200-115.

    If chipset supports 4 GB of memory and BIOS and Vista supports 4 GB of memory too, then you can go use the full 4 GB of RAM.
    If the FSB takes care also of 667 Mhz then modules of memory would also go wit full 667 Mhz speed.
    If the chipset supports only 533 Mhz then the chipset would slow the 667 Mhz module and memory would go only to 533 Mhz.

    So what you have to do is check what chipset is equipped in the U200-115.
    Full details and specifications of chipset you can find on the page of Intel.

    But generally, there is no big difference between the modules of 533 Mhz and 667 Mhz modules 667 Mhz turns a little faster but you won't see everything boosts performance

    I think 16 GB is the max. The maintenance and care guide says 16 GB for Intel based laptops. You have a Core i7 45W processor so the 16 GB should work on it.

    You can answer this question yourself!

  • Upgrade RAM & DDD installation on 15-r225nl


    I'm new to this forum. I did some research on the web and called tech support but I did ' t raise the answer to my question:

    I want to upgrade ram real 1x4Go ddr3l to 2 x 4 GB (dual channel) on my laptop hp 15-r225nl , but I don't know if the motherboard has solts 1 or 2 for the RAM modules. It is meaningless for me to move to a single stickt of ram but in single channel 8 GB, I prefer configuring dual channel.

    The Web site specifies only the amount of installed ram (or the maximum amount taken in charge or the number of ram slots).

    In addition, I would like to replace the hard drive with an ssd. Do you have any technical document that shows how to open the laptop?

    Thanks and greetings

  • Upgrade Ram on a Netbook NB200 - 00L

    I gave to my two daughters a Netbook Toshiba NB200 - 00L. Both came loaded with Windows 7 Starter. If I just upgrade to Windows Home Premium, it will slow down computers. I was told that the maximum ram that can take netbooks is 1gig. However, I keep seeing that people are upgraded to 2gigs. I want to upgrade the ram so that Windows Home Premium will work better. Can someone enlighten me on this subject. Upgrading ram Home Premium support will be more effective? Also, is anyone Home Premium running on their netbooks without upgrading, and it is really slow? Thank you


    AFAIK NB200 can be upgraded to 2 GB of RAM. Therefore, you can check the specs on the Toshiba site!

    I m not NB200 owner but I improved my other laptops equipped with modules from Kingston. I've never had a problem with these modules. They always run stable and don t make problems.
