Thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.

Yes you can, you need a 4GB DDR4 PC4-17000 (2133 MHz) dual channel chip

It has two slots so you should have one free.

You can get it here

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
