    If u upgrade the RAM.......please check with the Type and the Frequency (speed) of the RAM... and then the Size
    For Example.. 667 MHz DDR2 registered ECC FB-DIMMs
    Please check with the Frequency..of the Both the RAM's. It should be the same.
    And the maximum Efficiency that u get.. when u use Same capcity of the RAM with Same Speed..
    Also check with Single RAM.. on every Slot.. and check whether it's been detected in the BIOS
    Also check with the Pairs..
    For example most of the system board 'll have 4 Memory Modules.. and in that case, the Pairs are 1,3 and 2,4. So we need to install the RAM's on the respective slots.

    Hey Direct, there is no need to make the same post twice.

    Do you have a monitor you could hook to the laptop? Was the screen displaying okay before the upgrade?

    Okay so it sounds like you installed the wrong ram in your upgrade then. Still a little confused, in post #5 you say that the old ram didnt work, now you say it does?
