Hey ranjith1992,

The maximum amount of RAM your model supports is 8GBs. The unit has 2 DIMM slots, so you'll have to get 2x 4GB DDR3 memory modules. Take a look inside the unit to see what speed the 2GB ones you have are in there (example, 1066MHz) and purchase 4GB modules that match.

Here are some pictures/instructions to help get you started: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02829479.pdf

Page 48 lists tested/compatible memory modules, and even shows you how to upgrade it yourself! Also, make sure that you are using a 64-bit OS to fully utilize the 8GBs - a 32-bit OS will only see 4GBs.

Based on page 48 of this guide, it doesn't look like it will support more than 4GB.  The largest stick of RAM listed as compatible for this series of notebook is 4GB and the image indicates there is only one RAM slot.  If 4GB is the largest RAM module supported and there is only one memory slot, then it looks like it only supports 4GB of RAM max.

Hey Cloud_Stirder,

According to my internal product specification document and the hardware sample I have in my library, the unit does indeed have 2 slots and is spec'd to support a max of 8GB.

 

However, even in that photo that you referenced, you can see the 2 memory module release tabs, indicating that one module is layered below the other:

Muka3d,

Thanks for pointing that out. I somehow overlooked the second set of tabs in the image.

I'll be sure to give it a third look in the future. 😉
