@Tokyoghoulreape , welcome to the forum.


The maximum amount of memory that can be installed into the laptop is 8 GB.  If you are adding the standard 2 GB from the other laptop you may have to update the BIOS, if there is one, to make it work.


Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide for the laptop.  The memory information is on Page 24.
