Can I tell what RAM configuration without opening Laptop?

Laptop can handle up to 8G, came with 4G installed.

Is it one 4G chip, or 2 - 2G's? Can I tell if I have an open slot?

HP-Pavilion Laptop / AMD A-Series Processor / 15. Display / 4GB Memory model: dv6-6117dx

You can go to Crucial.com and run the system scan tool. It will tell you what you currently have installed.

Another utility you can run is CPU-Z which can be downloaded from cpuid.com.

Just from experience, if you currently have a total of 4GB installed, you most likely have 2 x 2GB modules because of dual-channel, and typically two smaller density modules are less expensive than a single larger module.

Here is the support site for the HP Pavilion dv6-6117dx Entertainment laptop/notebook.

It comes with 4 GB of DDR3 RAM, but it supports up to 16 GB.

It uses 204-pin DDR3 PC3-10600(DDR3-1333) CL=9, 1.5V, unbuffered 4 GB modules.
