Yea I assumed that would need to be the same so I made sure they were both 1.5v and alright I will be sure to get the 4gb stick then, I was wondering if it was bad for the computer to do that.

Honestly it's not that bad.. At worst the laptop will keep both at the lower of the two.

Why type of OS are you running? The fact that you are running 4GB of RAM currently makes me believe that you are using a 32 bit OS, which can only address up to 4GB of memory.

You already said your running a 64 bit OS, you're good to go!
