HELP!!!
That happened to me twice I had a similar Problem........bought Kingston 1GB DDR2 PC4200 533Mhz
Sodium for my MX6447 Notebook, installed it with the same type Kingston 1GB DDR2 PC4200 533Mhz
, didn't work, notebook got REAL HOT, wouldn't bootup, so, I let it cool down, and tried again, SAME Problem, returned it, exchanged it for another one, same Specs Kingston DDR2 1GB PC4200 533Mhz
, still didn't work, same problems, but, here's the kicker to all this, I have 1GB Kingston DDR2 PC4200 533Mhz,in slot 1, and in slot 2 I have 512Mb that shipped with my GW MX6447
, but, some how this Ram config works? but with the 2GB Kingston's DDR2 PC4200 533Mhz DIDN'T WORK
any body have any Idea as to why this Memory upgrade didn't work?
could it be that the Kingston
I bought to upgrade to 2GB
wasn't compatibale with the same one I bought, over 3 months ago? and that the 512MB
that shipped w/ my MX6447 is Compatiable w/ the Kingston 1GB
, I know this doesn't MAKE any sense to me, but, is there something synchey and I ,are both missing here? How do I FIX
this Memory Upgrade problem? do I NOW
have to buy 2 one GB Sticks
of the same lot, at the same time?, (in pairs) and, if so, would this correct this problem? this is gonna be an expensive memory upgrade if I have to do this, just to get 2GB Sticks to work in my notebook............anybody know?
