Upgrade Memory on HP Pavillion 15-au063nr Laptop

HP Recommended
HP Pavillion 15-au063nr
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP Pavillion 15-au063nr with 12 Gb installed RAM (4gb in slot 1 and 8 Gb in slot2) - 2133 mhz 1.2v DDR4 SHARED SODIMMs. I wish to replace the 4GB memory with an 8GB stick. However I am finding the bus speed is 2400 mhz, and instead of SHARED I am finding SINGLE RANK. 

 

1. Do I need to replace both slots to make it work or can I mix a SHARED with a SINGLE RANK chip set?

2. Is it ok to use a 2400 Mhz chip set ?

3.

The best option for dual channels architecture is use the SAME RAM of existing 8GB. The following tool with show you what it is,    (Looks at SPD tab)

Otherwise use the compatible RAM, normally they are 2400MHz ticks and will run at 2133MHz.

 

Regards.

 Thanks for the Solution - One question,  when I look at the SPD tab it shows Rank = Single. Could you explain what that implies?
