  1. no, your mobo will only read a max of 4
  2. You would need to check the motherboard specifications, but a board that only has 2 ram slots is highly unlikely to support a 4GB ram stick.
  3. does it say "max 4gb per channel"??

    if yes 4+4Gb possible

    Most laptops only have 2 slots.

    If you go to www.crucial.com, they have a nice system scanner that should be able to tell you the max RAM you can use in your system. Also, unless you have a 64bit OS, upgrading past 4 gig is a waste.
