depends on the ram and the ram speed. if both dimms are ddr2 800 speed. they should work fine as long as the timing is close.
(9-9-9-24) ie.. i would put one dimm in and use cpu-z to read the dimm. see what the voltage and speed is. also look under the spd tab for it rated speed.
power down the pc and swap the dimm for the hp one and re read the new dimm. if there the same speed you should be fine.

frequency showed 333mhz for dynet ram, and 400mhz for hp ram ;while voltages are same 1.8v;which one would be better if cant be used together

Could you please tell us what is the motherboard? Can it work with either set of RAM (speed wise). Is both sets of ram on the supported ram QVL list for that motherboard?

Generally though, mixing ram causes more problems than it is worth. So answer the above questions and decide from there. Stating that though, you will see NO difference going from the slower to the faster. You will get more benefit by installing the maximum amount of ram that the motherboard supports (2 GB, 4GB, 8GB?) but the manual for the motherboard will tell you that.
