According to https://support.hp.com/rs-en/document/c04608119#AbT1
These are the options.

Standard

  • Two SODIMM slots
  • DDR3L-1333 Single Channel Support (DDR3L-1600 downgrade to DDR3L-1333) (Transfer rates up to 1333 MT/s)
  • DDR3L-1600 Single Channel Support (Transfer rates up to 1600 MT/s)
  • 2048 MB (2048 MB x 1)
  • 4096 MB (2048 MB x 2)
  • 4096 MB (4096 MB x 1)
  • 6144 MB (2048 MB x 1 + 4096 MB x 1)
  • 8192 MB (4096 MB x 2)
  • 8192 MB (8192 MB x 1)
Maximum

  • Up to 8 GB
note:
Due to the non-industry standard nature of some third-party memory modules, we recommend HP branded memory to ensure compatibility. If you mix memory speeds, the system will perform at the lower memory speed.
Memory is non customer accessible / upgradeable
According to this, maximum would be 4096 MB (2048 MB x 2) 1600MHz DDR3L SODIMM RAM sticks.

Open the cover and take a look. These days manufacturers are soldering the ram chips on to the motherboards. most of the time- not all the time they will put in a slot for additional ram.
Look and see if you have an empty slot for ram. I've seen where 2gig were soldered and 2 gig installed which limited the max size. (can't remove soldered ram)
While you're in there verify the size that's installed.
