What kind of Ram does the OMEN by HP - 15-ce019dx take?

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have looked up which ram my laptop takes and was only able to find that it is an 8 Gb DDR4-2666mhz stick that is 260 pin. I purchased two of these from crucial and tried to install but all i get is a black screen when i turn the laptop on. I can reinstall the one 8Gb factory ram and the computer works fine. Looking at the factory ram it says it is only 2400 rather than 2666mhz.

 

I would like to add ram to my laptop so is this even actually possible?

 

If so, what should i upgrade with and is this laptop even capable of running 16 GB of ram?

Its specs

The specs says nothing about RAM but 2666MHz RAM should work. Did you buy the following RAM specs from Crucial which is a compatible set:

You can use a tool called CPU-Z to find out what it is now and buy a same one or use HP part

 

              8 GB part # 937236-850  (you need 2 to get 16GB)

 

Regards.

This is the ram that I purchased. https://www.crucial.com/memory/eol_ddr4/ct2k8g4sfs8266
When I installed them and turned the computer on the power button lit up but the screen remained black.
