@Dhouser1 , welcome to the Community.

 

What is the Product Number of the computer? I need this information to review the specifications of it. Please don't furnish the Serial # or other personal information. You can find the Product Number at the bottom of the page when you open HP Support Assistant.

Thank you for the additional information, @Dhouser1!

 

Here is the Product Specifications page for your computer.  If you look at the section titled "Memory/Memory upgrade information" it states that the maximum memory is 32 GB.  Here is the memory that is recommended by Crucial Memory.  You may have to remove the current memory if the new memory is not compatible.

 

I suggest that you use CPU-Z to find the manufacturer and timings for the current memory.  Once you have this information you can contact the manufacturer of the new memory that you choose to see if it is compatible.  Since the motherboard has "Dual channel memory architecture" it is best to install new memory in matching pairs.  This will give you the best performance.

 

Another way to boost your system performance would be to install a SSD boot drive.  On the page that I provided from Crucial they have a list of SSD's that are compatible with your motherboard.  You can either replace your HDD or add the SSD in another drive bay and use the HDD for storage.  If you do this you should connect the SSD to SATA port #1, which is where your HDD is currently connected.  Here is a HP Knowledge Base article that explains how to transition from your HDD to a SSD.

 

Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.
