Maximum Memory for my HP product is 8GB, but I keep running out of memory, how do I gain more memory

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 6340f
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a 10+ year old HP Pavilion p6340f in good working condition, it has Microsoft's Windows 10, 2004 version installed. I need to increase my memory but this PC came with 8GB of memory and I was told it's not expandable.

 So what can I do to increase memory without adding a memory card? The operating system uses 64 bit and 32bit

@Peacock 

I'm having problems understanding the problem -- because 8GB is more than enough "memory" for almost anything you want to do with a PC.

 

Please provide details about the problem, including what error messages you are seeing -- as I suspect this is not actually a memory issue.

Hello
indeed, if it is your computer, according to HP, you have the maximum
https://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c01959726

  • Amount: 8 GB
  • Speed: PC3-10600 MB/sec (message as PC3-8500)
Memory upgrade information:
  • Four DDR3 DIMM (240-pin) sockets
  • Supports 2 GB DDR3 DIMMs
  • Supports dual channel memory architecture
  • Supported speeds:
    • PC3-8500 @ 1066 MHz
    • PC3-6400 @ 800 MHz
  • Non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
  • Supports up to 8 GB on 64-bit PCs
  • Supports up to 4 GB* on 32-bit PCs


That said, this is what is tested and validated by HP!
in rare cases, more can be installed.
If you really need it try to see a specialist, who can possibly test, it will avoid buying something for nothing!
