M2 SSD / Max RAM capacity in HP 15-DA0073TX

HP 15-DA0073TX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

My HP 15-DA0073TX is very much slow performing even after multiple formats and fresh installation before even 1 year of purchase, so thought of giving an upgrade of RAM & changing from HDD to SSD or M2 SSD but while reading about specs got confused and need guidance from you techies, Please help me figure this out.

First whats the max RAM capacity  HP 15-DA0073TX can have and at what clock speed, I mean whether its 2133 Mhz only or is it possible to switch to 2400 Mhz/2666 Mhz speed RAM.

Secondly is there a M2 /M2 pci slot in  HP 15-DA0073TX apart from normal HDD SATA slot so that I can use an SSD with the existing HDD.

 

Awaiting replies

You have a triple whammy for slow performance....the low end low voltage processor, only 4 gigs of RAM and a slow 5400 rpm hard drive. 2 out of 3 you can improve. Memory is stated max of 16 gigs (2 x 8). It would run 32 gigs (2 x 16) but that is frankly overkill. I would simply add another 4 gig module and have 8 gigs. For a low investment it would make a major difference. It uses DDR4-2400 memory but with the i3-7020U processor you have it downclocks to 2133 speed and there is no way around that. 

 

Service Manual 

 

Bottom cover removal starts on p. 38 and once you have it open you see this:

The M.2 SSD slot will accept the fastest type available: NVME. So get one of these:

And this:

Post back if you need any more help with the details but please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

Thanks bro for your wonderful support, I spoke with a lot of people and they all commented to switch the os to ssd first and check the performance. So I ordered a 240 gig sata ssd as per the advice of the shop techie(hope it works out) but still I do have a small doubt while seeing the port in the laptop,it seems to support only nvme ssd as it got only 1  groove in between the connections while me seeing the image of sata ssd , it has 2 grooves in between connections.

Please share your opinions

Good to hear. Occasionally the Manuals show a slot that does not exist on certain models so I was concerned I had given you bad advice. Thanks for updating us.
