Specs: Windows 10
my laptop at the moment has 8gb of ram, intelcore i3 6100u 2.3 HGz, 1 TD harddrive. and at the moment I am trying to record and play games for youtube but I cant play the games and record at the same time as the recording keeps cutting out or the gam wont run, so I was looking at upgrading the ram to 16GB instead, would this work or would I need to change and else? I have found this online ( that says that it can fit into m laptop as I typed in the make and model or my laptop and this is what it gave me. would be really great if I could get some advice thank you.

If you used the Crucial scanner (download a little program) then it scanned the machine, listed what hardware you have and listed any and all upgrade options they currently offer for your machine. This RAM is a single 16GB card. If your machine has two RAM slots then the optimal would be to purchase a 16GB matched set including two 8GB cards to fill both slots. If the notebook has only one slot and they say it will work then it may be the best option. You do not need to purchase from them (though you may want to, they are quality products) but you will need to make sure that what you do purchase it equally compatible (same SODIMM format, capacity, speed, voltage, latency, etc.). If you just used their question and answer form to select your memory then you may not have hit upon the optimal possibilities (such as choosing a 16GB card instead or two 8GB cards) so I would recommend to go back and use their scanner.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Your bottleneck is the i3 processor. That's barely enough to play games with. I don't think you're going to see much, if any improvement on gaming and recording video at the same time by adding more RAM.

✔ Best Answer
Your Ideapad 310 isn't much of a gamer, it's an entry level laptop. The better one has the Core i5, the best has the Core i7. More RAM isn't going to help. Lower your game settings & in-game screen resolution, uninstall all useless Lenovo crapware, & disable all unnecessary startup apps.
