Go to some memory manufacturer websites.

E.g., Crucial, Kingston, PNY, etc.

For example:

https://www.kingston.com/us/memory

There should some online tools that will either directly check your laptop's RAM or be available as a download to run and check the installed RAM.

Try two or three of the testers to get a concensus. First on the modules that will work and in what configuration(s).

Then find the laptop's User Guide/Manual. The documentation should also provide the necessary RAM specifications.

i have found the same brand another 4gb so its 2 x4gb same brand will that be ok?
It can work but is not preferable since it could be a different line or be from a batch using different DRAM chips. It could potentially cause system instability. It is always best to buy a set that was matched and tested by the manufacture to ensure the best compatibility.
