It should be automatically recognised if it is compatible. Task Manager> Performance should show you.

If you are sure it is compatible, make sure you ground yourself, remove the replacement one (blow out the socket if you have an air source, or soft brush) and re-insert it (If you felt so inclined you could re-insert it in the old laptop and make sure it does actually still work), normally at  a 45 degree angle and them press it down until it clicks. 

If still a problem you may need to check the BIOS settings.

Google for help using the specific make/model, there may be help there if the above is of no use.

The other point to remember is that if your laptop is 32-bit (x86) as opposed to 64-bit (x64) then your laptop will never see more than 4GB of memory regardless of how much you install. 64-bit architecture can use more than 4GB, but 32-bit is limited to under 4GB.
