Gaming pavillion stock memory is operating slower than 2666Hz

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming - 15-ec0300nd
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So the laptop that I have has 8gb of 2667/2666Hz DDR4 memory installed (stock, straight from the factory), but for some reason the speed is limited to 2400Hz. I know this because task manager reports, under the performance tab, that the memory speed is 24000Hz. How do I fix this and turn the memory speed up to what it should be (2666Hz)?
