Anytime.

 

Yes, you should have better performance on W10 with 12 GB of memory--even running in single channel mode.

 

Nowadays you need at least 8 GB of memory to have W10 run efficiently.

 

This would be a compatible 8 GB memory chip for your notebook...

Hi:

 

The DDR4-2400 memory module will be fine, and will automatically bridge to 2133 MHz.

You're very welcome.

 

You won't have dual channel with a 4 GB + an 8 GB memory chip.   You will have 12 GB running in single channel mode, like the 4 GB is now.

 

In order for the memory to run in the higher performing dual channel mode, the memory has to be installed in matched capacities (2 x 4 GB, 2 x 8 GB) for example.

You're very welcome.

 

It will probably work, but I don't know for sure.

 

All you can do is to give it a try and see what happens.

Anytime.

 

You have a nice day too!

 

Unfortunately, I can't find a link to the service manual right now because HP has a major issue with those.

 

None of the links work and many of the service manuals are missing from the support pages.
