Hi,

Can you provide the exact model number of the notebook. Here is how to find it.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00033108

It should be possible to add another 4GB of RAM quite easily.

Some of the RAM in the notebook will be reserved for the system.

 

Let me know,

David

Hi Natascha,

More than enough info 😀

Your notebook is the HP Pavilion - 14-ce2860no

Your notebook has 4GB of RAM and some will be reserved for the system

However your system supports at least 16GB of DDR4 2400MHz RAM (2x8GB). You can insert faster RAM which will run at 2400MHz.

There are two slots and at the moment you have an empty slot. so you could add another 4 or 8GB module in the empty slot.

Ex:

https://www.crucial.com/compatible-upgrade-for/hp---compaq/pavilion-14-ce2860no#memory

 

On page 71 of service manual you can see the steps to install the RAM

http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c06248869

or get it done at local computer shop. These days 8GB is what you should have.

 

Hope it helps,

David
