I would like to upgrade the RAM memory on my HP Pavilion 23-q102nl.
It currently holds 4gb.
I would like to know if these 4gb are currently on one slot or 2x2gb,
If it holds 1x4gb and has free slot, which ram are compatible? can I add 1x8gb and bring the system to 12gb total or does it have to be another 4gb?
Solved! Go to Solution.
