OMEN 16-b1001na
Microsoft Windows 11

Good evening,

 

I have purchased the OMEN 16-b1001na (https://www.hp.com/gb-en/shop/product.aspx?id=673R7EA&opt=ABU&sel=NTB) and would like to upgrade it to 32GB of RAM.

 

Would this be compatible?

Cheers

Figured it out.

To be honest I already had the RAM but asked the question like that to save face in case I got the wrong RAM (no idea why I cared?) but was having trouble getting both sticks to work - each stick worked on its own in one slot, but neither worked in the other, both 8GB sticks worked fine in either slot.

 

A fresh Windows 11 install and BIOS update and both 16GB sticks are working, system boots and shows 32GB RAM. Happy days!
