Dell Inspiron 1545 RAM upgrade.

I was looking to upgrade the amount of ram in my laptop. It currently has 3gb and it can have a max of 8 so i wanted to buy this
Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 Laptop Memory Model KVR1333D3SOK2/8GR

I was wondering if this would be compatable with my laptop. Any help or recondmendations would be appreciated. Thanks

Of course, you can upgrade if your hardware supports. As your OS is 64-bit, it will support RAM greater than 4GB.
So, Whats the problem is upgrading?

No, they are not compatible.

If my memory serves me right they don't have the same number of pins so are not interchangeable.

Also, the voltages and signal clock speeds are different.
