blue screen after ram install

Guest

Hi Everyone
I purchased a new acer laptop it came with 512 mb of ram.
I went to add 1 gig more and now I get the blue screen.
If I try the 1 gig stick I get the Bkue screen, but it works ok if I put the
512 back in.
They are both DDR2 tyre ram. I the bios it shows 1536 mb and I can boot into
safe mode.
any ideas please.

You can try to use a RAM check utility. These utils are bootable and can
check your new RAM for errors. You should search for them online, then after
download and burn it on a CD to boot from. This way it does not boot in
Windows first and avoids the blue screen.

good luck!

I have run into this when there are two different RAM timings involved
(mismatched RAM). You have to manually set the bios for the slowest RAM
timings. Then the problem will likely go away. I have been successful in
doing this.

I did have a look in the bios but it wont let me make any changes to do with
the ram. I seems the bios changes are very limited on my laptop, but my desk
top allows you to do much more. both acer machines!

Another other idea's? anyone?
