I am looking to upgrade my current laptop (HP 14-ck0022tx) by adding an additional memory stick and internal SSD. I would like to verify if the following parts are compatible with my laptop before I buy them.
- Samsung 860 Evo Solid State Drive 250GB M.2 SATA
- Team Elite Team Group 4GB DDR4 2400Mhz SODIMM
Thank you so much in advance for the replies.

- STORAGE: Yes you can add M.2 SATA SSD such as Samsung 860 EVO to your machine,
- RAM: I don't know Team Elite Team Group RAM therefore I can't comment, why not use same existing RAM ? You can use a tool called CPU-Z to find out what is it.

You should check your Motherboard first. You can check it from Command Prompt. write and hit enter button >
wmic memphysical get maxCapacity, MemoryDevices
if Memory Devices is not 1, and MaxCapacity is 8 gb or more, you can upgrade your ram. ( MaxCapacity is written in KiloByte.)
And SSD, you should remove the bottom case. And check your hardware. if there is a M2 SSD slot, you can use it. You should watch tutorials while upgrading, do not harm your pc.

I am having trouble interpreting results from CPU-Z, Task Manager(performance tab), my laptop specs document.
On the specs page it says 4 GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (1 x 4 GB)
On Task Manager it says 4 GB DDR4 (Speed: 2400)
On CPU-Z I have the following:
- Memory Tab: Uncore Frequency 3000+MHz and DRAM Frequency: 1196.8MHz
- SPD Tab: DDR4-2666(1333MHz)
So what RAM speed should I buy? and what's the difference between SDRAM and DRAM
I would like to match my additional RAM to my existing one even if the brand is not the same. Thank you so much.

Oh. If SPD page says it's a 2666Mhz ram then you should buy a 2666mhz ram. Check your CasLatency too. It should be same. You can buy a 2400Mhz ram too but if your 1st ram is able to work in 2400Mhz.
Can you share a ScreenShot?
