Well...I don't think that "upgrading" is the right word for any OEM system.  RAM is tied to the motherboard...unless you intend to try to go with a different motherboard AND RAM, what you desccribe is a replacement.

 

First question...what do you really want to obtain as a result?

 

How much RAM is currently installed in the system?

 

Worth A Look

 

I, personally, don't believe in buying RAM from anyone other than a qualified entity that's willing to guarantee that it's the correct RAM and provides easy RMA if the sold product doesn't work.  Normally, that means I buy RAM from Crucial.com when it comes to OEM systems.

It should work unless there are random compatibility problems.

Memory chips (under sticker)? It probably has heat spreader so you won't see those "small black things".

No idea where you should buy those. Others may help there.

If you intend to add more RAM I would suggest running a Speccy Snapshot which will provide us with the module/s that you already have installed.  This computer is capable of running in dual channel which increases the throughput speed by almost double, so it is well worth pursuing.  In dual channel the modules need to be matched, this is why we need the Speccy information.  Once I know what the module/s are I can provide you with links to purchase the module/s.

 

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  Clicking on this link will automatically initiate the download. 
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.
 
speccy...1png_zpsr3irze6o.png
 
Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.
 
speccy...2_zpsia3rp09d.png
 
The following screen will appear, click on Copy to Clipboard.
 
speccy...3_zpsnj1twsfh.png
 
In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

There is a different motherboard for the two different models.

My mistake...I can't see that Crucial reflects anything for your model.

 

But...take a look Here.

Amazon has that module for sale at $15.51 plus $4.48 shipping.

 

Using this module with the other will give you 8GB of RAM and will run in dual channel.
