    I've come unstuck with adding ram on a couple of occasions but from my experience it either works or it doesn't. You can always remove the new stick if the laptop doesn't like it. It's worth researching ram very carefully to avoid the inconvenience of having to return it.

    If the spec on your stick matches spec on what you would buy from Crucial or Kingston as a compatible, then I would say to give it a shot.
