HP Spectre XT - Ram Upgrade - Problem with Screen

HP Spectre XT Ultrabook CTO 13
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi everyone,

I bough an Spectre XT laptop two years ago and now I have the following questions:

1. Can I upgrade ram from 4 to 8GB? if yes please let me know exactly what features I should consider to buy a new ram. Also please let me know if I can replace it myself.

2. my screen working only when tilted in certain angles....in other angles it turns black or other weird colors! any idea why that happens and how I can resolve this?

We need the full model number. There are a couple series of Spectre XT 13 inch and the answer might be different.

Spectre XT 13t-2100 is the model

 

Here is the Manual:

 

Service Manual

 

memory and CPU are hard soldered to the board....no upgrade possible. 

 

As far as the screen, it is either the display cable or the screen itself...about 50/50 which it is. The cable is much less expensive so that is the place to start. Let us know if you need help with that.

Thanks for the complete reply. I was wondering if you could give me more information about the cable and how I can fix it myself.

It is all in the Service Manual. Where are you located (country) and we can maybe help you find a cable to buy.
