Your information is helpful.  According to HP Parts Surfer,. your correct, it has 2x2GB modules. The max upgrade would be to replace with 2x4GB modules

A laboring system means either CPU speed and or RAM.   Less than $35 RAM is easier to install than unboxing a $600+ unit.

A simple test... go to Task Manager and then the Performance tab.   With no programs loaded, your Idle state should be less than 5% CPU, and 15-20% RAM.  Load 2 programs, like you browser (Firefox, or Edge) and another like Word, Apache Open Office. Then look at the Performance percentages. If you system is struggling. you will see the numbers.
