I need to upgrade my laptop 4520s. It has already two RAM modules exisiting are 2 x2GB = 4GB.I want to replace one 2GB module with Kingston KVR13S9S8/4 (4GB PC3-10600 CL9 204Pin SODIMM) which fit the HP description.
I decided to upgrade my 4520s ProBook's memory to 8gb but unfortunately failed.
Trying out multiple outcomes with (one 2gb module+ 4gb module)
windows-10 x64 setup loading but then showing a error with also interupt display *your pc did not start correctly* then i cannot go beyond that screen or in othercomes CAPS LED blinking 3 times addressing Memory Failure..
with old 4GB RAM runs fine.
Please let me know the solution if some body can help me in that problem.
Thanks in Advance.

You have to get a specific type of memory for any HP notebook with a Mobile Intel Series 5 chipset.
See this discussion...

Thanks for your quick reply. But actually i used the same specification of the RAM and it wont help. I used the same speed which is same as per HP alot to replace with it.
DDR3-PC3-10600-SDRAM (1333 MHz)
Bauform SODIMM Rank , Single-Rank-x8 Pins 204pin Typ Unbuffered , non-ECC Standard DDR3 - 1333 ( PC3-10600 ) Voltage 1,5V
Which is exact the same. Still it doesnot work out ?
May be this Gskill memory work out as i have not only read that thread but also on the other discussion popup. People recommend this Gskill. But i m just afraid that maybe i cannot lose just my money 😞

You're very welcome.
I guess you will have to live with 4 GB of memory then.
Most likely the memory you bought is not low enough density, which is why the memory won't work with 2 x 4 GB.
Trust me...there are only 2 or 3 brands of memory that will work, and it must have 8 little black chips on each side of the memory board, not 4.
Cannot be PC3-12800, cannot be 1.35V.
Since the memory you bought is the correct speed and voltage, then the density is too high.
