Hi:

 

Chapter 1 of the service manual indicated the max memory is 2 x 8 GB of DDR4-3200.

 

The memory is removable as shown in chapter 5 of the service manual.

 

Maintenance and Service Guide (hp.com)

 

The Crucial memory report for your notebook's model series indicates it will support 2 x 16 GB of DDR4-3200 memory.

You can also run this command 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. After the command prompt is opened, type wmic memphysical get maxcapacityEx and press the enter key.

 

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.
