Memory upgrade/expansion for HP-ac143wm

HP-ac143wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was wanting to pursue the memory upgrade for my 6 GB HP-ac143wm...do you have the precise name/type of modules to perform either the 8 GB or 16 GB upgrade? I am a poweruser/programmer and would benefit from more memory.

 

Thanks,

 

Joe

Memory upgrade/expansion for HP-ac143wm

Here is the Service manual:

 

Manual

 

p. 2 the Manual says 8 gigs is the max. I personally think it will take 16 gigs since it will take an 8 gig module, but to be safe assume 8 is the max. 

 

To go from 6 gigs to 8 gigs you have to discard the existing 2 gig module and replace it with a 4 gig module. 

 

How to on p. 46:

 

4-GB (PC3L, 12800, 1600-MHz) 691740-005

 

This is really only supposed to be done by an authorized technician to keep the warranty, but it is actually not terribly hard to do. There are a lot of screws involved, however so if you are not used to tech work you might want to take it to a shop. 

 

Post back if you need more help. the 6 gig to 8 gig upgrade should be somewhat noticeable and does enable dual channel memory operation which is a bit faster than single channel and the extra 2 gigs is needed by any intensive computing. 8 to 16 gigs might not even be noticeable. 

 

This is the module you need:
