Swapping SODIMM ram from HP to Gateway?

I have an HP laptop with 8 GB @ 1600 (2x4gb) and I want to swap it for a slower 4 GB (2x2gb) ram in this gateway nv5942u. So I swapped the rams together but when I turn on the gateway laptop it says failed due to a new hardware change. How do I fix this, architecture is x64 Windows 7
