Upgrade ram potential and to what on Omen 17?

HP Recommended
Omen 17-w200na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey I am wondering about potentally upgrading the RAM on my Omen 17-w200na from 8GB to 16GB, but I am unsure what ram I will actually need or will be looking for, I think my current ram is "8 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM" so would this mean I am simply looking for "16 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM".

 

In which case would I be ok with using this RAM as the replacement larger version?

 

Thanks for help

Hi,

 

Unfortunately it has

 

MemoryTwo SODIMM slots, not customer accessible or upgradable:
DDR4-2133 dual channel support (DDR4-2400 bridge to DDR4-2133)

Supports up to 16 GB max system memory with the following:
● 4096 MB (4096 MB x 1)
● 6144 MB (2048 MB x 1 + 4096 MB x 1), no support for 32-bit OS
● 8192 MB (4096 MB x 2) or 8192 MB (8192 MB x 1), no support for 32-bit OS
● 8192 MB (8196 MB x 1), no support for 32-bit OS
● 12288 MB (8192 MB +4096 MB), no support for 32-bit OS

No, you need 2 x 8GB and please contact an HP authorized service provider parts for this work

Does this mean that even though I bought the laptop from amzon (sold and shipped by amazon) that I can contact HP and they will install the upgraded ram?

Hi,

 

Yes, an HP authorized dealer can do this work for you. With new design, very hard to accress RAM slots therefore doing this ourselves may cause un-predictable damages.
