I am looking to upgrade the RAM in my HP laptop (15-f387wm). It currently has the factory installed 4GB low voltage RAM. Processor is AMD A8-7410.

I want to upgrade RAM to the maximum of 16 GB (8 GB x 2 sticks) and would like to purchase from Staples. (I know I can buy many other places, but I have educator money to spend at Staples only.) I have enough educator money to upgrade to an SSD 1 TB and this RAM if it will work: https://www.staples.com/Patriot-Signature-8GB-1-x-8GB-DDR3-204-Pin-SO-DIMM-DDR3-1600-PC3-12800-Universal-Laptop-Memory/product_937166

Will using DDR3 RAM work in my situation or does it have to be the DDR3 low voltage? Any potential problems from using DDR3? Any changes I need to make in BIOS if I can use the regular RAM?

Thanks!
