I've been searching through the forum but can't find a specific answer to my model.
I have 14-cf1502sa which has 8Gb (8GB DDR4-2400 SDRAM (2 x 4 GB)) installed.
I'm looking at a pair of 8Gb modules from crucial to upgrade it to 16Gb.
My query is, and it's probably a no 😉 , but .......
is the 8Gb per slot cast in stone, could you get to 16Gb per slot on this model ?

According to both Crucial and HP the max is 2 x 8 GB.

Yes I'd looked up the crucial data,
thanks for the link to the manual 🙂
Given Windows 10 Home 64 supports 128Gb I was just wondering if it was an 'artificial' (marketing 😉 ) limitation in bios or a true limitation of the chipset ...
guess I'll be maxing out at16gb then 🙂

You're very welcome.
There are operating system limits and hardware limits.
Theoretically, according to the chipset, the PC should support 2 x 16 GB of memory, and many times the crucial website indicates more memory is supported than the HP service manual does.
When they are both in agreement, it is dubious that 2 x 16 GB would be supported, and the only way to know for sure, would be to try a 16 GB chip and see.
I have no right to gamble with your money, so that would be a decision you would have to make if you wanted to experiment or not.
