according to HP diagnostics tool, I have one DDR4 memory in BANK 2 DIMM 1 socket. Memory brand is SK Hynix with 8 GB capacity and 2400 MHz frequency.
I want to increase capacity by adding another 8 GB memory.
In the old days, it was recommended to upgrade memory from the same memory manufacturer. In case of this PC, it is recommended that also?
In case I can install a memory from different manufacturer, and in case I don't find a 2400 MHz memory, can I install a faster memory, for example, a 2666 MHz memory without the risk of stability problem?

You can't go wrong by installing the exact same memory model as the original one, but that is often hard to do.
You can run the free utility that I zipped up and attached below and it should provide you the memory part number of the Hynix chip that HP installed.
Personally, I have never had a problem installing compatible memory from different manufacturers in the same PC, so it can be done.
What I recommend is to buy a compatible memory chip from Crucial.
I could not find a memory chip for your exact model, but I did find one for a similar model in the series, which should work for your PC too.
