Re: Cant Start Up
start with removing the added ram try starting up, if it doesn\t start up does it beep?
if noting happens remove all the ram, the computer should definitely beep now.
Add only the original memory and try starting up you should get picture.
This seems to be a old problem and if you don\t need assistance in solving it. It would be great if you would share to the world how you fixed your problem so other users can benefit from your experience.

I'm afraid it has to do with Apple's firmware on iMacs. A compatible 3rd party memory dealer is RAMJET. From their website, you can see: Apple Computers have proven too demanding for generic PC memory modules. Apple users have been forced to either pay Apple's high prices for upgrades, or buy 3rd party modules and be subjected to system crashes, boot failures, and sub-par performance. Worse still, most 3rd party vendors had no idea that Apple machines demanded a higher standard.
At Ramjet, we start with modules built 100% to Apple's original specifications, but we don't stop there. In our compatibility center, we have a comprehensive array of Apples, every platform built since 1996. Other memory companies try to test for Apple compatibility using generic RAM module testers, whereas we test our RAM in the same Mac you're upgrading.
normal PNY issue, find your receipt and contact pny's rma department, ship it off with RMA number and get a replacement,, the only thing pny is a stickler for is the receipt to prove your original ownership as they don't allow second hand warrenty.. but who's to say who's receipt it is... there is no FIX for this, the ram is notorious for going bad
winlogon.exe has become corrupted....shouldn't be memory related.....try using safe mode to restore your pc from a restore point....alternativly you'll need a boot disk like ERD commander to boot from cd and get to a restore point
SAME HERE Ram installed about 2 years ago I think 2x4gb ddr3 sodimms Failing after a year started as blue screens and not recognized short time after. Without receipt = no warranty Got it as a gift = no warranty Oem = no warranty Purchase with gift card and misplace receipt = no warranty House burn down with all paperwork = no warranty Not good at keeping records =- no warranty I have been in contact with PNY and can you tell they have told me without the receipt they can do nothing for me? COMPLETE WAISTE of the word warranty. and yes there support people get smart with you and quote other companies warranties and state see they do they same thing! WAY TO STAND OUT! Why even have a lifetime warranty, just call it a "prove it" warranty?
as u have identified the problem, pls take the defective to point of purchase for replacement.
if still a problem than to kingston for replacement. kingston gives life time wty for memory and u are eligible for new replacment.
let me kow if still a problem
Hi, You have the answer in your question. I have checked the PC specification and you are right, it uses PC2700 memory. Therefore you need to install PC2700 memory. PC3200 memory will be the wrong speed and will not be supported.
