  1. Is it the only stick, if other DRAM already there they may not want to play together, not a good idea to mix DRAM can be problematic
  2. ok when only the 4gb stick is in my laptop doesnt start, i have checked everytyhing else so either i need to change settings in bios to match ram stick or the stick doesnt work, what settings do i need to change and what do i need to change them to

    Most laptops don't allow much for changing the BIOS settings, if the 1333 stick won't boot up, you may just be out of luck with it, it should go to the default and at least boot up
