HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop - 16-a0032dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey, I was wondering something. I'm not the best when it comes to RAM and upgrading it, Would anyone happen to know what RAM sticks could be fit into the HP Pavilion Laptop 16-a0032dx? I can't find any definitive answers online but i wanna upgrade from 8gbs to at least 16gbs and the stock ones that come with the laptop clearly are already showing their age.  Thank you.

Hi:

 

Below is the link to the service manual for your notebook.

 

Maintenance and Service Guide (hp.com)

 

Chapter 1 has the memory upgrade info.

 

Your notebook has two memory slots and can support up to 2 x 8 GB of DDR4-3200 memory.

 

If you want to see if it is possible to install more than 16 GB of memory, you can run this command:

 

1. In the search box, search for cmd and click Run as administrator.

 

This will open the command prompt.

 

2. After the command prompt is opened, type wmic memphysical get maxcapacityEx and hit enter.

 

There, it will show the maximum RAM capacity your PC's motherboard can support.

 

The capacity is shown as Kilobytes, so you have to convert it to Gigabytes by dividing the number provided in the report by 1,048,576.

 

If the report indicates you can install 32 GB of memory, this should be a compatible 32 GB memory kit for your notebook:

 

Crucial 32GB Kit (2 x 16GB) DDR4-3200 SODIMM | CT2K16G4SFRA32A | Crucial.com

 

If you want to stick with the HP manual's memory upgrade info, this should be a compatible 16 GB memory kit for your notebook:

 

Crucial 16GB Kit (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 SODIMM | CT2K8G4SFRA32A | Crucial.com
