Medion Akoya P4020D AIO upgrade options

Has anyone successfully upgraded the RAM to 8GB (after upping the OS to x64 standard) and/or added an SSD ?

Re: Medion Akoya P4020D AIO upgrade options

Hi @dnhb

 

I dont have any personal experience with this system, but according to thisthis, and this site, 2x 4 GB should be possible.

 

Also I came across a youtube clip of someone replacing the harddrive with an SSD here, the text is in German but it is still easy to follow. Needs a little drilling to be able to screw the SSD to the frame, but other then that it looks pretty straightforward. I don't see any room to add a second harddrive though, so I don't think you can add the SSD as a second disc.

 

 

 

Kind regards,
Bart

Re: Medion Akoya P4020D AIO upgrade options

Many thanks, B, for the prompt response & especially for taking the trouble to provide the 3 links. I'd already checked on the Crucial (although I couldn't get its scanner to come up with any SSD recommendations) and Mr Muscle sites but hadn't seen the Geeks to Go post. However, I had found another GtG post  (at http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/topic/360182-medion-p4020d-will-not-accept-2-x-4gb-ram/) which suggest that the system won't accept more than 4GB which is why I posted my question on this Forum. I wonder if the resolution lies in the detail of the RAM compatibility issues addressed in the post you helpfully cite....

 

Thanks again

SSD can be installed with replacing CD/DVD unit like others do on laptops. See here:

My idea:

I have unplugged and removed CD/DVD unit and puted in SSD with power cable split:

and SATA cable:

Works fine for me with original HDD and new SSD.

 

Istalling/upgrading additional RAM is different story. It looks like motherboard is not supporting upgrading RAM. And please do not try to upgrade BIOS!!! You will corupt it any way you do it.

I didnt find any case with RAM upgrading over 4 GB on this machine (medion akoya P4020D AIO PC). All my methods were also waste of time (and unfortunately corupted BIOS situation).
