HP Gaming Pavilion - 15-cx0056wm

I'm thinking about upgrading my HP Gaming Pavilion 15-cx0056wm memory and I have ordered (Corsair 32GB (1x32GB) DDR4 3200MHz CL22 SO-DIMM. I read some post where it was suggested that the laptop might not support the 32GB memory. Can anyone please guide with if it will work the system?

Thank you.

Hi:

 

I am very sure that 2 x 16 GB of memory will work in your notebook, even though the service manual indicates that the model series can only support 2 x 8 GB.

You can do this to see how much memory your notebook can support:

 

1. In the search box, search for cmd and click Run as administrator.

 

This will open the command prompt.

 

2. Once command prompt is opened, type wmic memphysical get maxcapacityEx and hit enter.

 

There, it will show the maximum RAM capacity your PC's motherboard can support.

 

The capacity is shown as Kilobytes, so you have to convert it to Gigabytes by dividing the number provided in the report by 1,048,576.
