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=N82E168... 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.
