second ram chip won't fit into slot

HP Pavilion g6-1189sa Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I have tried to install a second ram chip however the chip wont fit into the slot. I have also tried to fit the original chip in my machine into the slot and that also won't fit. Is their any reason why im having this problem?

Its specs

It has  4 GB DDR3 and  Upgradeable to 4 GB DDR3 that means you can't add more RAM. Are you sure you looking to the right slot ?

 

Regards.

I figured it out. the 2nd ram slot was just a bit tight, but after cleaning it the chip fitted in nicely and all is fine now
