Lets start this by letting you know I have next to no technical knowledge. I bought a 27 inch Imac in 2015 and with the advice from these forums I bought and installed 3rd party RAM x2 (Cruical 4GB DDR3L-1600 SODIMM MAC). Fast forward to December of this year - while installing Catlina my Imac crashed and I took it to the apple store. They told me my hard drive was bad and it needed to be replaced. After $290 or so I picked up the CPU and it still wouldn't load Catalina so back I went to the apple store. Now they said my 3rd party RAM was bad so they removed it and loaded Catalina. So I assume I want to replace the 3rd party RAM but not sure what to get. Do I buy the same Cruical RAM or is there something better on the market now? If I do buy new RAM will there be any issues with Catalina? Just looking for advice and some help. Thank you all very much.

This is the info from when I ordered the original Imac. If this helps.
