Upgrading RAM

HP Recommended
HP 8300
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I currently have a Lenovo ideacentre all-in-one, I've recently purchased a refurbished HP Compaq Elite 8300.

 

I was wondering if it's possible to disassemble my current Lenovo PC, remove the RAM and add it to the HP 8300 machine.

 

Does the lenovo RAM need to be a certain type and spec?

 

Thanks!

Hello
you need to check what the HP accepts
And what is installed in your other computer!
You will be very lucky if it is the same type of memory modules

ex for this one :

HP Compaq Elite 8300 PC Product Specifications

CMT, MT, SFF
1600-MHz non-ECC DDR3 SDRAM; (4) DIMM slots enabling up to 32GB

Ahh I found the Lenovo uses 8G,SODIMM,DDR4,2133MHz.

 

The HP uses 1600-MHz non-ECC DDR3 SDRAM.

 

Am I right in thinking the Lenovo RAM wont work in the HP?

the modules are different, it cannot work
