unsupported memory message - Crucial 8GB

Jump to solution

hi

I've read the the post on Unsupported 1 Gb / 2 Gb density SODIMM(s) detected on SODIMM Slot 2. System instability or data loss possible. Please replace with SODIMMs with 4Gb or higher density. Continue (Y/N). but from what I see, I have the proper type of memory modules.

Tried to install 2x4GB Crucial DDR3L modules, 1.35v, CT2KIT51264BF160B on my NUC6CAYS, and I still get the message, computer boots normally when I press No, but get the message again every time I try to boot.

is there something I missed?

p.s. It's a brand new computer, just did all the BIOS &WIN10 updates and all the driver updates last sunday

The CT2KIT51264BF160B is incompatible memory module since it is assembled fro 2Gbits density chips. You may replace it with similar kit with correct 4Gbit density: https://www.amazon.com/Crucial-Single-PC3-12800-Unbuffered-204-Pin/dp/B00BP501AS/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&... Crucial 8GB Kit (4GBx2) DDR3/DDR3L 1600 MT/s (PC3L-12800) Unbuffered SODIMM 204-Pin Memory - CT2KIT51264BF160BJ at Amazo… (similar P/N but wit "J" in the end, build from 2X4 chips).
