There are no upgrades you can do to your notebook to get the Microsoft W11 upgrade directly.
The processor is not supported and it does not have a TPM 2.0 security device.
2 x 8 GB of DDR3L-1600 memory is supported.
This should be a compatible 8 GB memory chip for your notebook:
Below is the link to the service manual where you can find the memory removal and replacement procedure.
You cannot upgrade your notebook from W8.1 >W11.
You would first need to upgrade the notebook from W8.1 > to W10 and then use a W11 hardware check workaround to upgrade from W10 >W11.
To upgrade to W10, use a W10 PC to create a bootable W10 x64 USB flash drive with the media creation tool from the link below.
After the USB media is created, do not boot from it.
Open the flash drive in Windows explorer, double click on the Setup application file you see listed in the flash drive to begin the upgrade process to W10.
If you are interested in installing W11 on your PC as is, you can read this discussion for how I upgraded several HP and Dell notebook and desktop PC's that did not meet the W11 hardware requirements to W11 22H2.
If the in-place upgrade fails, you should be able to clean install W11 using the bootable W11 installation flash drive you made with Rufus.
