Solved!

updating & installing additional RAM

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Desktop - TP01-0145a
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I just bought this  new PC (HP Pavilion Desktop - TP01-0145a).

 

It currently has 16 MB RAM  in one memory slot. There are 4 memory slots in total, and currently I have 3 empty memory slots.  II wanted to increase my RAM to 32 GB. and have ordered an identical 16 GB of RAM 

What memory slot should I use when installing this additional RAM for optimal performance or to work at all?

Also, with the  remaining two memory slots can I install 2 RAM sticks  that are identical to each other but not the same make or specs to the RAM already installed?

 

Many thanks in advance 🙂

Its specs

Very interesting, its specs says it only has 2 slots of RAM

Back to your question, you have in pair "In the case of a motherboard with four RAM slots, it's probable you'll want to install your first RAM stick into the slot labeled 1. A second stick should go into Slot 2, which isn't next to Slot 1. If you have a third stick, it would go into Slot 3, which will actually be between Slot 1 and Slot 2. Finally, a fourth stick would go into Slot 4".

Thank you for your great reply    I presumed it would have only two slots, but when i ran the  "Speccy"  program it indicated 4  And upon opening the case I saw 4 slots. The only motherboard diagram I could find was a general diagram for or that series not of my actual motherboard
