Upgrading RAM on a HP Pavillion 15 - p189na K7R25EA#ABU

Pavillion 15mp189na K7R25EA#ABU
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I started getting Windows 10 boot errors on my wife's laptop and finally traced it down to a bad memory module. Thanks to the way how laptops are made these days it was not easy but Youtube helped out. On this laptop, there are 2 memory slots and the possibility to run the memory in dual-channel mode with is 20% faster than using a single channel module 8GB . So I replaced the part with a Corsair 2x4GB Value Select modules DDR3L 1600Mhz CMSO8GX3M2C1600C11. These modules worked fine, machine booted up and dual channel operation confirmed using CPU-Z tool. By pressing esc key whilst powering up machine allows you to boot into HP's built in configuration check to confirm correct operation of installed memory. Hope this helps some one out there!
