More Ram for 15-BA051WM

We have an HP 15-BA051WM Touch computer and my son wants to play games on it.  He says it needs more ram than what the computer has.  What can I buy to add more ram to the computer and make game playing run smoother?


Thank you!

More Ram for 15-BA051WM

Here's the specifications:


The laptop has an AMD A10 processor and 8 gigs of RAM. 


It has integrated AMD R5 graphics. That is the problem for games, not the memory. 8 gigs is plenty and adding more memory will not make games run any smoother. There is also no way to add a different video card. The video chip is soldered to the motherboard. 


So he needs to lower the settings on the games he is playing or lower his sights as to the power requirements of the games he is trying to play. The laptop is very competent for internet, and office type work, videos, and modestly demanding games but is not able to play the latest type games very well. 


This type of advice never goes over very well. But if this has answered the question please click "Accept as Solution" to help others find it.
