Compare the two chips, paying attention to the memory type (DDR2, DDR3, etc), frequency (listed in MHz), and voltage. If the chips match, you can run them together and they should also run in dual channel assuming that the other chip is 4GB as well. If not, you can still install it if everything else matches apart from the amount of memory; it won't run in dual channel but it will still increase your system memory.
