    About the only user-friendly hardware upgrades that you can do with most factory-brand laptops is replace its storage drive(HDD or SSD) and add more memory(RAM).
    You cannot replace its processor(CPU) and graphics device(GPU).

    What's the exact product number(P/N) and serial number(S/N) on yours?

    It will be on a sticker on the bottom of the case or inside the battery compartment.

    You have THIS HP Notebook 15-da0087nr which was purchased in April 2019 and came with Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

    It came with these hardware specs:
    Intel Core i5-8250U 1.60 GHz quad core processor
    cpu.JPG

    Intel UHD Graphics 620 graphics device
    gpu.JPG


    It supports up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM, but it may have come with only 8 GB.
    How much RAM did yours come with?

    Go into the Display Adapters section in the Device Manager.
    Is it showing any other graphics device besides "Intel UHD Graphics 620"?

    From what I can determine, the processor and graphics device are not upgradeable.

    You should add another 8 GB and run it with 16 GB of RAM.
    Even if it's not used for gaming, it's good to have the extra RAM when it's needed.

    You should know that your laptop was not designed for the stress and demands of hard-core gaming.
    A laptop that's designed for that purpose will cost you well over $1,000.00.
    The Dell Alienware and ASUS ROG laptops are designed for that purpose.
