Hi I have this old ram that is broken, the serial on it says HYMP125S64CP8-S6 if I try to install 2 slots of M470T2953EZ3-CE6, can anything go wrong and if ram is incompatible can it damage laptop? Unfortunately I cannot tell which motherboard laptop has as I don't have laptop with me at the moment.

No, what would happen is the laptop simply wouldn't start up.

not likely unless you are trying to force ddr into ddr3 etc. Ive heard stories for people doing something like that on a desktop and it shorting the slots out.
