Cool, thanks guys. I used the guide successfully to upgrade the RAM on my HP 15-r033na Notebook. It would have taken ages without your help! A really tough way to reach the memory.

I wonder if the second DIMM slot is usable. The specs I've found says this board only takes one card, so maybe the second is disconnected.

Did you ever get an answer on this? Did your upgrade improve performance at all? Seems like 20 steps x 2 should only be undertaken if there's a serious boost at the end of that tunnel. Thoughts?

Note that my system now has 4GB in slot 1 and 2GB additional in slot 2. Still, I constantly run out of RAM.

Thanks!

Thanks so much for this guide. I’d found my PC’s manual/repair guide online (it’s an HP 15-r011dx) but the instructions were much more cumbersome. Your guide is excellent, and now with twice the RAM, I feel like I have a totally different PC!

The whole upgrade was much more fidgety though than any Mac I’ve ever worked on, and so strange that HP puts the RAM chip on the motherboard. Crazy… It’s like having to do a root canal to brush your teeth!
