Upgrade Ram of My Notebook 15-ay503tu

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 15-ay503tu
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

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🤗

Hi:

 

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.

You may have heard that games and applications perform better with dual channel memory compared to single channel memory, but why is this the case, and how m...
