Upgrading my HP All-in-One 24-r100na RAM, maximum capacity?

HP Recommended
HP All-in-One 24-r100na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Looking to upgrade my HP All-in-One 24-r100na RAM as multitasking well known graphics/imaging software on the original 8GB is, to use a huge understatement, slow 😅. Official HP Statistics state the maximum RAM as 16GB and most stockists recommend the 2 x 8GB however the command prompt states the maximum RAM capacity as 33554432 (32GB).  Anyone know if its worth me following the command prompt and paying the extra for the 2 x 16GB given that general day to day is already hovering around 80-85% of my current RAM usage (without running any huge programs) or will I just be wasting money?

TIA

Hi:

 

The Crucial memory report for your PC indicates that you can install a max of 2 x 16 GB of memory.

8 GB:

16 GB:

 

Crucial 16GB DDR4-2666 SODIMM | CT16G4SFD8266 | Crucial UK

 

Perhaps you can install one 16 GB chip in the empty slot and have 24 GB of memory, and see if that makes things acceptable.

 

The official HP memory upgrade specs for your PC indicate the max memory is 2 x 8 GB, but the Crucial report is almost always right.

If you are at 80% memory usage with 8 GB, installing another 8 GB should knock that down to around 40% and adding another 16 GB of memory should reduce the usage further than that--perhaps to 25%, which would be a good place to be.

 

The processor spec calls for DDR4-2666 MHz memory...not sure why HP indicates the memory speed is only 2400 MHz.
