different rams in laptop

i have lenovo e431 (intel HM77 chipset)
it has 2 gb 1600 hynix ram
i want to upgrade it with a 4 gb 1600 corsair ram

I hear that both the rams must be identical, so i need to confirm before buying

I the final configuration would be 2gb + 4 gb

Would it be compatible

  1. You don't need to have two identical RAM, but you may or may not have problem with the compatible. I add the link from newegg.com for one example. The laptop has 6GB RAM ( 2GB+4GB). http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834312438

    And if you want to try you can go ahead but you need to make sure you can return the RAM if it does not work with old RAM. It is hard to make a call. Or buy the 2X4GB kit that is best way to do.
