Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello. Apologies if this has already been asked before, I'm a bit new to this.

 

I've got an HP All-In-One with 8Gb of RAM, but I've started doing some work with music software which really needs 16Gb to run well with. I've upgraded RAM in laptops before, but never All-in-Ones. 

 

Is this something that's possible to do with my desktop computer without performing major surgery? If it is possible and relatively simple then great, but if not, I don't want to commit to dismantling the whole thing only to not be able to put it back together again.

 

Any help / advice welcome. Thanks in advance.

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual.

 

Take a look at how to access where the memory is located and see if you want to undertake the project.

Here is a link to the teardown video for the model series...

Have a look at your task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) and check under the "Performance" tab that's it's actually the memory that's hindering your performance, and not the HDD sitting at 100%.

 

That's the issue I had and I've just upgraded my All-in-One to an SSD drive (NVMe, in fact) - the difference in performance is absolutely staggering!

 

Regards,

Robin.
