I recently found out that my notebook has 1 extra slot of RAM. I want to upgrade it, but it kinda confusing. I can't find anywhere if the actual RAM card is dual channel or not (if it is, i only want extra 8GB. i don't want to buy a 16gb ram card). Second, in the notebooks specs it says that it is 2400mhz, but when i check it in task manager, it says 2666mhz. Can you guys give me some details of what should i do to make a smart choice?
Thank you very much and stay safe.

There are indeed 2 slots. The laptop uses DDR4-2666 SO-DIMM but it "bridges" meaning downclocks to 2400 speed. So when you look at the modules actually installed they are 2666 modules. And if you install a matched pair or a pair with the same specs and size (gigs) you get dual channel operation. So your thinking is right: get a second 8 gig module of DDR4-2666 but get regular factory type memory not any gaming or HyperX or stuff like that. Crucial, Hynix, Samsung, etc.
Relevant specs on p. 4 and "how to" on p. 44.
You can order an 8 gig module here:
Post back with any more questions and please accept as solution if this is the info you needed.

I have the same question.
I am perplexed, however, that you say adding another 8Gb of RAM is possible and yet the manual that you have linked (thank you) gives a max RAM spec of 8Gb :
Two SODIMM slots - customer non-accessible/non-upgradeable
DDR4-2400 Dual Channel Support (DDR4-2666 bridge to DDR4-2400)
Supports up to 8 GB max system memory
4 GB (4 GB × 1)
6 GB (2 GB × 1 + 4 GB × 1)
8 GB (8 GB × 1)
It is a shame if this limit is correct as I could do with the extra RAM.
Please can you confirm.
My notebook is a Pavilion - 15-bc403na

Sorry to bother you again, but i found on their website a ram card.
is it ok? I see that there are 2 of 2666mhz. I wanted to buy only one, to work with the one i have already, but i don't think it will match.
thank you very much,
