hp 15-ba051wm RAM Upgrade

hp 15-ba051wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have an HP 15-ba051wm, and the box that it came in states that it has DDR4 RAM.  It came with 8GB of RAM, I believe 2 DIMMs.  I want to know the maximum amount of RAM that I can put in and if there is a configuration pattern that I should follow.  Example, if I can only put in 16 GB can I put in one DIMM that is set to 16 GB or do I need  a 2X8 configuration?  Also what speed of RAM is best?  I also plan on putting in a SSD and upgrading to Win 10 Pro.

hp 15-ba051wm RAM Upgrade

Hi,


Before proceeding please create a recovery USB using HP recovery manager and keep safely.
http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04641788


Specs: http://support.hp.com/za-en/product/hp-15-ba000-notebook-pc-series-touch/10862319/document/c05301028

Manual: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05227786

Your laptop comes with AMD Quad-Core A10-9600P with Radeon R5 UMA graphics and touch screen.

Page 2, 46-47: instructions given

Two non-customer-accessible/nonupgradable memory module slots

DDR4-1866 dual channel support
(DDR4-2400 bridge to DDR4-2133, and
DDR4-2133 downgrade to DDR4-1866)

Supports up to 16 GB RAM in the
following conƭgurations
● 16384-MB total system memory
(8192×2)[UMA models only]
● 12288-MB total system memory
(8192×1) + (4096×1)�


Already it has 8 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (2 x 4 GB), you can put two 8gb modules of exact same configuration, speed, voltage as given in the manual (PC4, 17000, 2133-MHz)� and each other in the two slots. Since it is not customer accessible or upgradable, please get help from certified HP technicians to do the upgrade. Else if something breaks in the process it'll void the warranty.


Page 3, 28 in the manual, SSD:
You can either replace HDD with 2.5 inch 7mm SATA SSD (Page 50-52) or

Or
Put in a M.2 2280 SATA-3 SSD and make it as boot drive (Page 55)


Your laptop came with Windows 10 64 bit.

Get at least 256 GB capacity SSD for using recovery media to successfully factory reset OS. You can do a clean install of Windows 10 also after replacement, by using UEFI bootable installation media created via windows media creation tool.

For upgrade to Windows 10 Pro, buy licence (activation key), follow this: https://support.microsoft.com/en-in/help/12384/windows-10-upgrading-home-to-pro
