1- Hi :fou: 

2- go to dell website and locate your model and check the user manual to see how much memory it will support.

You can probably get only 2 slot in it so you need 2 identical (speed, timing and voltage) to be sure that it works.

Since you didn't provide any info on your laptop.
I assume you have 2 X 2 GB in it so you need to replace them both but then again if the lappy supports 8 gb ram.

Good luck

I'd highly recommend logging into Dell's website and plugging in your service tag. They're usually stuck on the bottom of the system and about 5 characters log. For example, "JXR0K3". Once you plug that info in, you'll be greeted with all the info you could ever possibly need. From service manuals, to the original specs that exact laptop shipped with. You could also post your service tag here along with your O/S and I could look into the issue for you. Windows 7 64 bit?
