Can i install a single stick of 16Gb ram instead of 2 x 8gb in my laptop?

Hello everyone,

I have a question about upgrading my laptop ram. I have a HP 15-bs150sa which comes with 4gb by default. On the hp website and also on Crucial it say that it supports a maximum of 16gb. So i have ordered a single stick of Crucial 16gb. So my question is will it work as a single stick or do i need to buy 2x8gb? 

 

I also came through another interesting thing, via hp virtual agent I ran Operating System Diagnostics and there it shows maximum capacity is 32gb. So which one is correct? 16gb or 32gb?

Thank you everyone in advance for helping.

Hi:

 

In theory, your notebook's Intel 8th gen core processor can support 2 x 16 GB of memory, so it will probably work.

 

No need to remove the 4 GB chip.  You may as well leave it installed and run with 20 GB of memory.

 

The service manual however, indicates the max is 2 x 8 GB.
