I want to increase my ram of my notebook but I want to know , Can I purchase any DDR4 ram or I have to go for only 2133 Mhz not 2400Mhz ?
Also Is Dual-channel RAM facility which increases speed available for my laptop ?
Will I have to get another 4gb ram or I can get 8gb ram🤗 ? I mean 4gb already + another 8gb --is it possible ?🙂
In this situation I can't go to a shop for this, so I am thinking to do it myself from buying it online. SO please help me🤗

You can install up to 2 x 8 GB of memory in your notebook for a total of 16 GB.
You can install DDR4-2400 MHz memory and it will automatically 'downclock' or 'bridge' to 2133 MHz.
You should be able to install any compatible name brand memory you want.
Single channel memory = memory in one slot, and an empty memory slot, or mismatched memory capacities in both slots (2 GB + 4 GB for example).
Dual channel memory = matching capacity memory in both slots (2 x 2 GB, 2 x 4 GB for example).
Below is the link to the service manual, where you can find the memory removal and replacement procedure...

Thanks for the reply😊.
Just one question , Do I have to check if it supports duel channel or not ?
In amazon India it's not specified for any duel channel,
where in flipkart it's specified as duel channel,https://www.flipkart.com/crucial-4gb-ddr4-2666-sodimm-works-2133mhz-2400mhz-ddr4-4-gb-dual-channel-l...
and some other 4gb rams are specified as single channel.

You're very welcome.
As I posted yesterday...there is no such memory specification as single or dual channel.
Take another look at what I wrote yesterday about what single channel and dual channel memory means.
The memory you posted from Amazon.in is the same as the model from flipcart.
If you add that 4 GB memory chip to the 4 GB memory chip in there now, it will run in dual channel mode.
What I would like you to do is to watch this video...this explains the difference between single channel and dual channel memory.
