    You appear to have a HP 15s-fq1505sa Notebook PC which came with Windows 10 Home 64-bit.

    According to its specifications section, it comes with this hardware:

    4 GB(4 GB X 1) of DDR4-2666 RAM

    256 GB solid state drive(SSD)

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Your laptop has 2 memory slots, and it supports up to 32 GB of RAM, so you definitely have the option of adding more to the 4 GB that came in it.

    That's an impressive processor for a consumer laptop, so if you have the money, you might consider increasing the amount to 16 GB instead of to 8 GB.

    Since you don't know how to replace it yourself, and you risk ruining your laptop if it's done incorrectly, you should have a reliable computer shop do it for you.

    That laptop's marketing specs says it came with a single 4 GB module of DDR4-2666 RAM.
    But that can only be confirmed by opening the memory bay and removing it and examining its label.
    Obviously, you don't want to do that.

    Laptops can be finicky about installing mismatched modules, so it's recommended to install a matching pair.
    A matching pair of 8 GB modules is what I recommend.
    A reliable computer shop will know what it needs and will install them for you.
