Hi:

 

Yes, lately that question has been asked a lot, but unfortunately there is no fix that I am aware of.

 

HP released this document a while back, which explains the memory shortage...

 

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06526774

This seems to only apply to models with AMD processors and chipsets.

Info on Microsoft PlayReady.

You're very welcome.

 

I would imagine that if you buy another 8 GB memory chip, you will have more memory, but not the full 16 GB.
