Does anyone make a single 16gb module for laptops to the following spec ..............
DDR3L-1600MHZ (PC3 12800) SODIMM 204pin CL11 Latency (unbuffered and is non-ECC)?

Only one slot on my Laptop is working (diagnosed as faulty by a reputable repair shop).
And I want to run 16gb ram.

My laptop is a Lenovo y580.

I know that the laptop does support 16gb but may not support a single 16gb ram module in a single slot. The first thing to do is find out such a module exists.

Assuming your right about that model supporting 16GB RAM, and if that's the maximum it supports, then with only one slot being usable your limited to 8GB.

You'll have to either settle for that or it's time to consider buying a new laptop.

There are only two or three laptop brands that I trust (based on personal experience over several years) but Lenovo isn't one of them, nor is HP.

Yes 16GB limit so only 1 stick of 8 will work if the other slot is dead.
