I want to upgrade my laptop to 16 Gb RAM.

 

The CrucialScan.exe gives me this information about compatible upgrades:

As you can the model of notebook detected wrong (G710 instead of Z710).

 

Is it safely to buy this kits recommended by CrucialScan?

Does the "100% compatibility" program (with money back) by Crucial working in this case?

Re: Memory upgrade for Lenovo IdeaPad Z710

All the memory you see listed there is guaranteed compatible with the G710. If you purchase directly off of Crucial.com there is a 45 day return period to return the parts for a refund if they do not work out.

Bear in mind the compatibility guarantee is only for the system, there is no way to guarantee with 100% certainty if you mix memory with different parts that they will work together, however it's very rare that mixing would cause system issues. If you install new memory with old, the system boots, and you don't have any crashes after an hour or two, you know you're going to be good.
