Upgrade RAM on Compaq CQ5504F

HP Recommended
Compaq CQ5504F
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a Compaq CQ5504F desktop, S/N 4CE0260XJ9. It has a 64 bit motherboard and runs Windows 10 Home. It currently has 3GB of RAM. I would like to increase the amount of RAM. How much RAM with the motherboard support and where can I get the correct RAM chips? I believe I need DDR3 1333MHz DIMM PC3-10600 PC3-10600U 2RX8 CL9 1.5v (240 PIN) Non-ECC Unbuffered Desktop Memory RAM Modules. These come in 4GB chips. The motherboard has 2 RAM slots. Will the motherboard support 2 of these 4GB RAM chips?

Below is the link to the product specs for your PC.


You can find the memory upgrade info on that link.


Looks like the most you can install is 2 x 2 GB, so you would just need to remove the 1 GB chip and install a 2 GB chip in its place to max it out.


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


You may want to buy the 2 GB memory module from Crucial since they advertise that they guarantee compatibility.
