You don't understand my answer.

 

The specs state that only an 8 GB bar is supported in the memory slot, not a 16 GB bar.

 

If you want to experiment with a 16 GB bar, that is entirely up to you.

 

What I am saying is that 2 x 8 GB is better performing than 1 x 16 GB.

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the crucial memory upgrade report for your PC:

Below is the link to the service manual, which also has the memory upgrade info and memory removal and replacement procedures.

Not according to crucial or the HP service manual.

 

Usually PC's with Intel 8th generation core processors can support 2 x 16 GB of memory, so I don't know why neither site indicates that.

 

So, if you want to experiment with a 16 + 4 GB memory chip, that is up to you.  I can't gamble with your money.

 

But 2 x 8 GB of memory is better than 1 x 16, because the 2 x 8 runs in the better performing DDR mode.

You're very welcome.

 

I am also saying that a 16 GB memory bar in theory should work in a notebook with an 8th generation Intel core processor.

 

But since the specs for your specific model only state 8 GB per slot, I can't 100% guarantee you a 16 GB memory bar will work.

 

The crucial memory site usually says 2 x 16 GB is supported, even if the HP manual indicates only 2 x 8 GB is supported, so I am just a tiny bit unsure if a 16 GB bar will work.

 

If you feel lucky, go for it.  😊
