Nice question! Now, here are some of my own:
Do I have telepathy to figure out the make and model of your laptop? "mmmmmmmmmmnnnnnnnnnggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh" nope. Next question.
What is the make and model of your laptop?

Go to the web site of either Corsair or Kingston. They will tell you exactly what memory you can use and what type you will need for your laptop.

tapa8tiz. the best choice may have been for you to visit one of the web pages for memory companies ijack posted. Those web pages have a way to tell you exactly how much ram can work. The web page might be called a configurartor or some such name but the memory companies have a vast database that lets them sell you the correct type and amount of ram. Find that out and then maybe we can decide.

Some laptops can only use so much in each slot. We are not sure if your limit has been reached by this one stick or if the other slot is bad.

If both sticks were working but only one is now--and you didn't make any changes--you should be able to isolate the stick or slot that's the problem.

Work with one slot at a time and try each stick in the first and then each stick in the second. If one stick works in neither slot or both sticks don't work with one of the slots then you know where the problem is.

I would suggest you run Memtest and see which module is failing.
