ASUS G73JH Memory Upgrade? - Page 2

post #11 of 47
Thread Starter 
thank you, and regarding the mem Crucial specs here they are:
http://www.crucial.com/eu/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=E7BC287EA5CA7304

is weird, cuz cricial says that my laptop has 3 slots, and we all know that that is not true, unless there's another G73Jh model with only 3 slots, but anyway, one of the things that i can rescue from the specs is that this memory works at 1.35v, whereas the laptop runs the memories at 1.5v, although i don't know what are the tolerances of the memory sticks that i acquired, moreover i think that if these sticks work well and under tolerances i'll just get another pair of 2x4GB, so i am running all of the sticks with the same specs, now, regarding the lCL timings, i assume that once you install the ram the bios sets the timing automatically?, so if i want to configure that manually, how do i do it? cuz i entered my BIOS and i can't see anything that allows me to configure that.

I don't have that much experience disassembling laptops, although i do with PC'S, i always repaired,/builded my own PC'S, i have disassembled laptops only twice, so the tutorials that you gave me will be helpful indeed, so i'll just go carefully, besides, i am studying electronics and computers engineering so i think i'll be fine tongue.gif

i'll post my advances on this, thank you for all the help

x4ksqeq,
Could you please confirm that G73JH supports 32GB of RAM? Did you try it yourself or is it something you heard?
I'm trying to find out if I can install 4 x 8GB RAM modules but so far people say that G73JH isn't compatible with 8GB modules.

Hi Killerwhale,

I upgraded my Asus G73JH-A1 to 32GB , Original config was 8GB RAM, i7 QM720 , 2 x 500GB HDD (1 TB) , ATI 5870, Win 7 Home Prem.

Because of lousy Asus Thermal paste ...I had to re- pasted the GPU & CPU, also I upgrade the RAM to 32 GB using Patriot 8GB modules(PSD38G13332S) - (2 x 16GB Kits = 32 GB ) timing 9-9-9-24. 1.5v

You will have to upgrade your OS to Windows Professional or higher to access total 32GB memory (MS caps Home Prem at 16GB).

There is no HW limitation on G73JH-A1 for memory. Make sure to run Memtest 86 or Memtest 86+. Difficult part is to get ..defect free memory kits from a vendor. I brought the memory from Newegg.

Hi, x4ksqeq,
Thanks for the info! That's exactly the configuration I have, though as it is a French model, it's called G73JH-TZ103V. I already have win7 ultimate 64-bit, so that's not a problem.
You said you bought your RAM at Newegg, so I guess here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820220621 is your review as "RG". It's the only place I've found so far that states clearly that it's posible to have 32GB; others were just saying it might be possible without actually trying it.
BTW, did you have to hack the BIOS in some way in order for it to recognize the whole RAM?

i have a g73s i got from best buy i ordered 16gb corsair vengence ram 8 x 8 clocked at 1866 mhz
my system recognizes 20 gb of ram now the 16gb is for system ram and it dedicated 4gb to my gtx 460m
my win experience went to 7.4 for a laptop thats decent
i also have a corsair 120 gb sata 3 hard drive installed for windows / games and a 750 gig seagate momentus mechanical hd for music and blu rays
i play battlefield 3 all day on this setup and i highly recommend the 16gb vengence ram

I have an Asus G73J I did upgrade the memory form 8 to 16GB and I'm still not seeing the added memory. Running memtest 86 only shows 8gb. The memory was ADATA DDR3 1333 4GB X16 SO DIMM.
How do I check the clock speed or check BIOS settings? I would like to take this computer 16GB or to 32GB. I run VMware and I have PLC software in different file like three computer in one.

What OS are you running?

I would also be interested in what configs were necessary when putting in 32gb. Any bios changes?

Thanks

Yes I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
The Computer only shows 8gb out of 16gb installed I pulled two 4gb cards out and put in two 2gb cards. Then the computer only showed 4Gb of memory. Like it doesn't see the other cards

Hi ,

My BIOS version is G73Jh.211 , How many memory slots do you have in your machine ? try rotating the memory sticks ...could be because it's not getting seated properly. Great if you could share your memory specifications as well ...(timing info 9-9-9-24)
