Are these two ram sticks compatible?

Hi guys, I currently have a samsung m471b5273ch0-ck0 4gb stick in my laptop, but have come across a samsung m471b5273eb0-ck0 4gb ram stick in a faulty laptop, and I am wondering if they are the same specs, so I can mix them.

M471B5273CH0-CK0 Samsung 4GB SODIMM Memory PC-12800
M471B5273EB0-CK0 Samsung 4GB SODIMM Memory PC-12800

When it comes to ram, I am very limited with the knowledge, so any help would be appreciated.

Thank you

If your laptop supports a max of 8Gb or more, you should be able to use both without problems.

Thank you. (I should have asked this when making the post)

When I insert the memory, if it shows on my pc as 8GB, rather than the current 6GB, does that mean the ram is working correctly, or is there a test to do?

Thanks

entering the bios will show more detailed info but yes if you look at system section in control panel and it shows increased ram level then you should be good to go

If you want to check hardware etc personally I use speccy, it has a portable version so doesn't need installing and will tell you everything you need to now about your hardware including ram capacity/timings/speed

Have 2 sticks of 4GB ram in my notebook, but..
It only shows 7.87GB usable. Moreover, I just got a BSOD that says page fault in non paged area. Could it be the ram issue? Got it twice in like 2 months? Last month and this month.

RAM... Two sticks, three sticks, dual channel, triple channels, huh?
I ordered some computer stuff at 4a.m. and I had a major brainfart when doing so. I ordered some Crucial ram that came in 2GB sticks, Newegg.com sold is in doubles and triple packs, my thought was well, 6GB is better then 4GB when ordering but after doing so I thought, wait, don't you normally...
