- I would like to upgrade my RAM. What can be maximum RAM this laptop can work with?
- What are the part number of this RAM?
- In case the part numbers are not available in the local market, are there alternatives available?

The manual says:
Supports up to 8 GB of system memory
Memory modules (1066 MHz, DDR3) ● 4 GB PC3 10600 1333 MHz shared 621569-001
You would be able to use any DDR3-1333 SO-DIMM (i.e. laptop memory). It must be low density and that means 8 black blocks on the side of the chip like the module in the picture.
See p. 51 of the Manual here for "how-to":
That is an older laptop from maybe 4-5 years ago, you know? Also if you really have 32 bit Windows 7 on it you will not be able to effectively add memory. It takes the 64 bit version to run 4 or more gigs of RAM. Specs say that model was delivered with 3 gigs of RAM and 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium so not sure what you have now.

8 GB max was standard with the first generation Intel Core processors, even on desktop models. At one time not too long ago, 8 gigs was a fantastic, huge amount of memory. HP now sells laptops that will take 64 gigs of RAM.
