I would like to upgrade the RAM in my laptop, but cannot find the maximum RAM that can be installed. It currently has 4GB and I would like to upgrade to 8GB.
I have not been able to find any manuals for this device that specify the maximum amount of RAM.
The laptop is a HP Notebook 14-am038ca running Windows 10 Home and Linux Mint.
Go to Solution.
Notebooks with the Intel Pentium processors such as yours have one memory slot, which supports a max of 8 GB of memory.
You would have to remove the 4 GB memory chip and replace it with an 8 GB memory chip.
For some reason there is no service manual on your notebook's support page .
However I found it on this third party website...
This would be a compatible 8 GB memory chip for your notebook.
Would this memory from my local computer store work with my laptop?
Additionally, how would I install the RAM into my laptop?
Unfortunately I would not be able to confirm with 100% certainty that the memory you selected would work.
What I can confirm is that it meets the DDR3L-1600 requirement.
Now HP has the manual working on their site again...it's at the link below.
See chapter 6 for the memory removal and replacement procedure...
