Solved!

Increase RAM?

HP Recommended

I want to know if it´s possible to increase my laptops RAM. I start a new school on monday and just realised that i need atleast 8gb RAM and I only have 6gb. Can I install more? Is it possible to use an external harddrive or something?

Jag skulle vilja veta om det är möjligt att öka RAM på min laptop. Jag ska påbörja en ny utbildning på måndag och när jag läser igenom instruktionerna så krävs det minst 8gb för de program som vi kommer att arbeta med och jag har endast 6gb på min dator. Kan man installera mer eller finns det lösning på annat sätt?

Hi Malin,

The notebook will support max 32GB of DDR4 2400MHz RAM (2x16GB)

At the moment you have one 4GB module and one 2GB module, so you could swap the 2GB module for a 4 or 8GB module which should be enough.

Ex:

On page 56 of service manual you can see the steps to install the RAM

Let me know if you need any further help.

 

Take care,

David

I would also replace the Hard Drive with an SSD which would give a great boost in everyday performance of the PC. Especially since SSDs have become a lot cheaper.

You're welcome.

If you decide for the SSD let me know and I can maybe guide you (if you need it 😀 ) on how to reinstall the OS etc...

 

All the best,

David

I don´t know much about computers so I don´t think I can do this alone. I need to find someone to install this for me. Tank you anyway, now I know it is possible at least. I really like my computer and as an aspiring writer I don´t like to change my keyboard or buy a new computer when I don´t have to. So thank you, you made my day.
