I just found this forum in search of an answer to a ram upgrade problem I've encountered with my m6811. As you know, it comes with 512 (256 mb hardwired + one 256 slotted). I tried to upgrade the slot with 1GB (pc2700) stick (four times with four different manufacturers) and couldn't get the latest After Effects to work. It works with the old ram. I use Premiere Pro, MAX, and they all work with the current 1GB stick. I've reinstalled After Effects, but no change. With a Kingston 1GB stick AfterFX would start to load, then the "blue scream of death" and reboot.
With Corsair, the m6811 wouldn't even boot. Now I have ram from memorygiant.com and the laptop will boot, I can launch AfterFX and I don't get the blue screen and reboot, but it hangs on the AfterFX splash screen with "cleaning up OpenGL."
Need help from the universe! Any thoughts?
