Is it the following one, which is HP Slimline Desktop - 260-a040il, its specs




It came with FreeDOS and you installed Windows 10 32bit . Windows 10 32 bit does not support RAM over 4GB.


The specs says you can upgrade to 16GB (2 x 8GB) max, but your machine runs 32bit OS therefore no point to upgrade to anything larger 4GB.


It clearly says on its specs



  • 32-bit systems cannot address a full 4.0 GB of memory.
  • HP has tested a maximum of 16 GB on this system and does not recommend maximum memory beyond the 16 GB amount.
