Is the HP 15-BA009DX memory upgradable?

Product Name: HP 15-BA009DX
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

How many memory slots does the HP 15-BA009DX have and is it upgradable (accesible)? Also what is the real maximum memory? Anyone tried putting in more than 8GB?

From the Service Manual:

Two non-customer-accessible/nonupgradable memory module slots DDR4-1866 dual channel support (DDR4-2400 bridge to DDR4-2133, and DDR4-2133 downgrade to DDR4-1866)

 

Supports up to 16 GB of system RAM in the following conƭgurations

 

16384-MB total system memory (8192×2)[UMA models only]

 

Yours is a UMA model so can take 16 gigs. Memory replacement shown on page 42 and 46 of the Manual here:

Re: Is the HP 15-BA009DX memory upgradable?

I was informed by a memory salesperson that the AMD Quad-Core A6-7310 APU only supports DDR3 memory types and the maximum memory this will support is only 8 GB. This totally contradicts what was previously posted here.

 

So my first question is DDR3 or DDR4?

 

2nd question: 8 or 16 GB maximum?

 

3rd question: Which is the best Crucial memory product that is recommended for HP Model 15-BA009DX?

Well I am human. The Manual covers several different models and some are DDR3 and some are DDR4. You have to read the chart in the Manual carefully and I apparently did not.  See pages 2-3. The memory is DDR3L-1600 but it downclocks to DDR3L-1333. There are two slots and it can take 16 gigs of RAM.

You are best off buying by HP Part number:

 

8-GB 693374-005

4-GB 691740-005

 

https://www.amazon.com/HP-PC3L-12800-DDR3L-1600-SODIMM-Notebooks/dp/B00ILBWRRO/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qi...

 

This crucial product appears to be equivalent:
