I added a stick of 4 GB of ram in my HP 15 it is not recognized.

HP 15-ac151dx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I installed a second  stick of ram in my HP laptop, DDR3 PC312800 it did not recognize it. I placed it into the first slot it did restart but it did not add the old ram in the second slot. So I know it is the correct ram for the computer. I need to know how can I get the laptop to recognize it?

Hi:

 

Does the original memory work in both slots?

 

If so then you know the slot isn't bad.

 

Your notebook uses DDR3L-12800 (1.35V) memory, not DDR3-12800 (1.5V) memory.

 

Installing the wrong voltage memory would be the most likely cause of your current dilemma.
