Will my Dual-Channel RAM run with the same amount of memory if my laptop's hardware uses 300 MB?

HP Recommended
HP 14S-CF3043TU
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I checked my laptop's specifications and it states that it uses 300 MB of ram means that my laptop has around 3.7 GB of ram usable. I would like to add another 4 GB ram module in my laptop to enable dual-channel ram. My question is that will another ram module run at 3.7 GB as same as the first one or the amount memory reserved for laptop's hardware will be divided by two for each ram module? Or the second module will still run at 4 GB? Thank you.

Hi @PurryCatsMeow,

 

I'd like to help!

 

I did go through the Product specifications of your product and found that you have  4 GB DDR4-2666 SDRAM (1 x 4 GB) installed on this PC. And your computer supports 8 GB ram  Refer: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06146792 to 2 Chapter 1 Product description.

 

Memory management is handled by the system.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
