I've got an old laptop that I wanted update with more ram, but there's no display with the new ram ?

My laptop is a 2011 Samsung series 7 700z:
(in Norwegian)

And I bought this 8GB ram:

When I changed it, the laptop did not start. I could hear the fan start, but the screen was black.

Do you know why this was not a match?

I found this page, where Crucial has a couple of ram it says fit, but why? Whats the difference between this and the one i bought?

The only difference I can find is 1,5 vs 1,35v, but is that the problem? Also, I think the pc is compatible with 8gb ram 😅

Hope you can help me 😄
