    The easiest way to identify that original 8 GB module is to remove it and read its sticker(s).

    According to the information on your images, your computer has a 8 GB module with these specs:
    288-pin, DDR4-2133, 1.2 volt, CL=14, Unbuffered, Non-ECC

    I think the new stick will work but it will run at the same speed as the other stick, 2133MHz.
    Try installing both sticks and see what happens.

    Ok, there's no point in buying that HyperX module, it would be a waste of money, you should look for one with the same specifications as the module you already have.
