Before I can answer your question, I will need to know the product number of your notebook.
Use this guide to find that information...please do not post the serial number.

Hi! My product ID is 2BD73PA#UUF
its really running slow can I just upgrade like the RAM if so, what are the compatible rams for this? Thanks so much for replying
You're very welcome.
There are two upgrades you can do...
1. Since your notebook has an Intel Celeron processor, there is only one memory slot.
You can remove the currently installed 4 GB memory chip and replace it with an 8 GB DDR3L-1600 memory chip.
2. You can remove the slow-poke 500 GB 5,400 RPM mechanical hard drive, and replace it with a much better performing 2.5" 500 GB solid state drive.
Those two upgrades should help quite a bit.
Your notebook won't be a speed demon, but it will be pleasantly usable at least.
You can use the HP cloud recovery tool to reinstall W10, the drivers and the software that originally came with your notebook on the SSD.
Here is an info link for how to use that utility...

Below is the link to the service manual which has the hard drive and memory removal and replacement procedure.
Yey!!! alright thank you so much Paul! will definitely do these upgrades.
stay healthy 🖤
Glad to have been of assistance.
You stay healthy too and enjoy the upcoming holiday season!
