    ROG STRIX GL703 RAM Form Factor?

    Hello all,

    I'm trying to replace my laptop's RAM because I keep getting page fault errors. After trying every fix I could find, the last resort presented to me was to replace the RAM. However, I'm not sure whether the laptop uses a 240-pin or 288-pin DIMM (the only two form factor options available for 8GB and 16GB DDR4-SDRAMs).

    Does anyone know which I should get? Or how I can find out?

    Also, any suggestions on which brands are reliable?

    Thanks in advance

    you need SO-DIMM ram (small outline) DDR4 which is designed for laptops and or small form factor PC’s.

    the normal sized DIMM is meant for desktops.

    I checked hardware stats on my GL703VD, and it says that my RAM is Samsung M471A2K43CB1-CRC.

    Thanks for clearing this up, I was curious about the difference between DIMM and SO-DIMM

    I literally looked at this when I took my RAM out... Not sure why I didn't just punch that in and search. Two hits on Amazon.

    You don't even have to take your RAM out to see what it is

    Is your laptop still under warranty?

    does upgrading the ram from 8 to 16 invalid the warranty?
