Solved!

How much ram does my PC support?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 570-p049 Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Specification sheet says: "Supports up to 16 GB (unbuffered) on 64-bit computers"

Command Prompt says: "MaxCapacity 33554432"

 

So is the maximum 16GB or 32GB?

I current have  12GB, one of which is a 4GB Stick and 8GB Stick.

Hi, @JJGBM 

 

Below is the link to the Crucial memory report for your PC.

 

 Memory RAM & SSD Upgrades | hp - compaq | pavilion 570 series | Pavilion 570-p049 | Crucial.com

 

According to the report, your PC would take a max of 2 x 16 GB of DDR4-2400 memory.

 

While HP indicates the max is 2 x 8 GB, the processor and chipset support 64 GB of memory when the PC has 4 memory slots, so it makes sense that with two memory slots, it would support 32 GB.

 

I think it would be a low risk gamble on your part to max it out.

 

If you want, put one toe in the water and buy a 16 GB chip.

 

Add it to the 8 GB chip and if the PC boots up works, and reports 24 GB, then 32 GB will work fine.

Indeed @Paul_Tikkanen  as I mentioned it is what is indicated by HP max 16gb
It is often possible to install more @JJGBM 

sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn't, one in two chance
But now, if it's your computer:

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-pavilion-570-p000-desktop-pc-series/13823514/model/17199887/...

I doubt that going to 32 GB will be very useful for you, if the computer is in its original configuration.
This pc does not have a graphics card, it only has a 2tb mechanical hard drive
if it's slow, adding 32gb ram, certainly won't change much to that
Unfortunately, with the small 180w power supply, you won't be able to add a good graphics card.
But if you want to boost it a bit your best would be to install an SSD drive.
So my advice would be save your money, don't spend it unnecessarily on RAM.
And at best find a good little SSD you have a free m2 slot

Lubin motherboard specifications.
