RAM Upgrade for HP-Pavilion 14-bf128tx

HP Recommended
HP-14bf1xx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP Pavilion 14-bf128tx (HP Support Assistant displays at 14-bf1xxx. 

 

The current configuration is 16GB (8x2) and 2TB HDD+128GB SSD.

1) I wish to upgrade the RAM to 24GB (8+16), or may be 32 GB (16+16) is that supported? My preference at the moment is 24 GB. I know the document does mention 16GB as max but 8th gen processors have a limit of 32GB. Kindly advise me on that as 16GB is really becoming insufficient for me. It's been 3 years since I bought this laptop and I am not in a position to change it just for RAM. Adding extra RAM would be beneficial.

Also, the HP OS Check mentions that I can upgrade to 32 GB (image attached). 

2) For Storage, can I upgrade to 1TB SSD and also retain the 2TB HDD at the same time?

 

Kindly advise me.

You can try updating the drivers using the HP support assistant.

If the issue still persists after trying out the steps try the steps recommended below.

 

Use the steps in this section to help find the cause of the lockup:

While holding down the Alt key on the keyboard, press the F4 key to close the application.
