ram upgrade for 17-g192nr Pavilion

Pavillion i7 6700HQ
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Does this computer support RAM upgrades (to its supposed 16 GB max)?

 

Listed in Amazon reviews for the unit 

https://www.amazon.com/forum/-/Tx15K4MAF2BBM2M/ref=ask_dp_dpmw_al_hza?asin=B0195KSVTM

is an exerpt from the manual that seems to suggest downgrade to DDR3 1333 is necessary for dual channel ram performance.  of course, skylake processors are not rated to interface with regular power DDR3 and are supposed to be damaged over time because of the power differential.

 

I don't necessarily need to upgrade to 16 GB of ram, I just want to know if it is possible (and safely so for the CPU).

 

Thanks!

Hi,

 

The following link shows specs of your computer:

It has

 

Two SODIMM slots - NON customer accessible / upgradeable

Hi, thanks for your reply.  Will the Service provider upgrade the ram to 16 GB of DDR3-1333 if I want to upgrade to 16 GB?

 

Thanks.
