Hi:

 

Chapter 1 of the service manual indicates that 2 x 8 GB of DDR4-3200 memory is supported.

 

Maintenance and Service Guide (hp.com)

 

I believe that your notebook can run 2 x 16 GB of DDR4-3200 memory if you want.

 

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.
