Hi,

Can anyone please suggest if the DDR4 RAM is supported for HP Elitebook 840 G1 model.

This laptop supports total of 16GB RAM. I have 8GB DDR3 in one slot and can I place DDR4 8GB RAM in another slot ?

No the physical configuration of the memory modules is different. Your laptop ONLY takes 

 

Two customer-accessible/upgradable memory module slots with the following specifications: DDR3L-1600-MHz dual channel support

If you get another chip just like it even from a different vendor it will run in dual channel. Has to be the same speed (DDR3-1600 aka PC3 12800) and voltage (in this case low 1.35 v denominated as DDR3L) and same density (4 or 8 black blocks on the side of the module).

 

HP Part No. is:

 

8-GB memory module 693374-001

Where are you located (country)?

It will fit but likely will not work and if it did it would slow everything down. Buy compatible memory. You will not be sorry.

HEllo Huffer,

I have an HP EliteBook 840 G1 and I want upgrade the RAM,

I have seen that the correct RAM specification must be:

DDR3L-1600-MHz

PC3L-12800

I've found a RAM detailed as

PC3L-12800S

"S" stands for "SODIMM", Small Outline DIMM, module with reduced length; is the form factor of the modules for laptops, it should be the one suitable for my HP EliteBook 840 G1.
So the S is a redundant product description?

Thank You for your support,

best regards
