Hi Steve,

Here are the specs for this machine:

You should be able to install & use 16GB (max) in that machine provided you have the memory type required and you have a 64 bit OS installed on it. HP also notes that the OS may further reduce the amount of memory on the machine. I would start by disabling the quick boot feature in most BIOS screens so that the memory can be checked and :"counted". If it goes up to 16GB, the memory is good and the OS is limiting to ~12GB. If not - there a bad chip / stick somewhere.

You should begin swapping memory sticks one at a time to determine which stick is problematic and return it for replacement.

How do I clear my internal phone storage?

The external memory is the 16g card you have installed.The internal memory is the storage it has the phone itself.Most of it,it has been reduced from the OS (Android). Another issue may be that whatever you download can be saved only in your internal storage ( i am not sure) check it out!

I asked around and installed an electric fan with wiring because my old factory fan broke. The fan had one blue and one black 16G braided wire coming directly from the fan. I attached the black (ground) to...

A 96 GC should have a regular belt driven fan. 16 ga wires are not big enough to power any type of fan motor, Are you sure they are not 14ga?. If the factory fan broke, just replace it. Try hooking the wires directly to the battery, make sure it spins the right direction, if not, reverse the wires but make sure the fan is on the right way, you may need to flip it over. The fan should be hooked to a thermostat, you dont need the fan spinning 100% of the time.
