I am using lenovo T410 with Windows 7 64 bit OS. One RAM slot is installed with 2GB RAM from hynix. I tried to upgrade it by installing another 4GB RAM from PNY (DDR3 PC3 - 10666) in the rare slot. After few minutes of booting laptop issued blue screen error. I tried all the combinations to corner the problem and I suspected defective stick. So I've returned the stick now.
Can anyone here please share the exact specifications for the DDR that I should be installing in T410?
(It would be great help if someone could point to the exact product online )

Welcome to the forum!
Any DDR3-8500 or DDR3-10600 module will do. But stay away from no name brands, I personally have very good experience with these brands:

Not all DDR3 memory modules are actually compatible with the T410.
The reason for the error is likely because you are using High Density memory (e.g. a 4GB module with 8 chips - 4 chips on either side).
The Intel i5 1st Generation CPU as contained in the T410 only supports Low Density memory (e.g. a 4GB module with 16 chips - 8 chips on either side).
Have a look at the RAM module itself - if it looks like it's a high density module then that's the problem!

Can I install 2x8Gb in the laptop if I'll find low density RAM?
And where can I get specification about what kind memory ( voltage, MHz, etc.) I can use in my laptop?

Welcome to Lenovo Community!
The maximum memory supported on your model is 8 GB, so you can use 2 x 4 GB.
You can look out for DDR3-1333 SDRAM SO-DIMM (PC3-10600) card, please click the below link to get the exact part number.
Hope this helps.

Will be my laptop faster if I install DDR3-1333 to compare with DDR-1066? Or DDR3-1333 will work at the same clock frequency as DDR3-1066 and no difference between them?
It will work at the same frequency as DDR3-1066
