RAM upgrade

HP Notebook 1BQ14UA#ABA
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, 

So I just purchased this laptop and I'm thinking of upgarding the RAM. However I cannot find this particular product on any support site nor can I find out the exact RAM it uses. I know I currently have 8gb ram, and I know I need to find the same kind so that they work together.  But I cannot find any information regarding what type of RAM I need. 

 

Also, along the same veins, with this laptop is it possible to add another HDD? Or replace the current one with an SSD?

 

Thank you for your help

RAM upgrade

Hi,

 

Looked like you bought this machine from Best Buy. And the following link shows its RAM information:

 

     http://specs.kolomgadget.com/store/hp-17-x116dx/

 

it uses  DDR3L

 

Page 2 of the manual shows:

 

Two SODIMM slots - customer accessible / upgradeable
DDR4-2133-MHz dual channel support, 1.2V
DDR3L-1600-MHz dual channel support, 1.35V
Supports up to 16 GB of system RAM in the following configurations:
● 16384-MB total system memory (8192×2)
● 12288-MB total system memory (8192×1) + (4096×1)
● 8192-MB total system memory (8192×1) or (4096×2)
● 6144-MB total system memory (4096×1) + (2048×1)
● 4096-MB total system memory (4096×1) or (2048×2)

 

Page 49 of the manual shows how to add/replace RAM

 

Regards.
