Hello. My name is Ramees.
Welcome to JustAnswer.com. I look forward to assisting you.

I know it can be confusing when it comes to computers. But don't worry I'll try my level best to help you.

I have looked into the specs of your computer and it supports a maximum RAM capacity of 16 GB and you don't need to upgrade the PSU to install SSD.

SSD uses the same power as HDD regardless of capacity.

You can use SATA SSDs in your computer and you can put 2133 MHz DDR4 SDRAM in it.

If you are interested, I can send you links to correct SSD and RAM modules.

Please let me know.

Windows 10 OS. The present RAM is 8MB. Can I just add another 8MB to make it 16MB? Is it possible to install a SSD and keep the HDD as well?

There are 2 RAM slots in your computer.

If you have only one 8 GB RAM stick in one of the slot, then you only have to buy one 8 GB RAM to upgrade.

In case, there are 2x4 GB RAM modules, you will have to buy new modules.

And you can add SSD along with your current HDD.

Your computer has 8 GB RAM now. (not 8 MB).

And your computer can take up to 16 GB.

So you can add another 8 GB.

And you can add SSD along with your current HDD.
