Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
Ok, so I wanted to add more memory to my laptop. I had an old laptop lying around, so before I went to buy another memory I thought I would switch out one of my sodimms with the one in the other laptop. So I did, and I pressed F1 to save the changes, everything was going well until I got Windows Boot Manager screen, saying that:
Windows encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer.
This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external usb drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or cd-rom drive that is failing. make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.
If you continue to receive this error message, contact the hardware manufacturer.
Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred.
So I press enter and I get a screen where I can choose the operating system. All I have is Vista so I press enter and it sends me back to the error screen.
So I say ''Snap!'' and I turn everything off and switch back to the old memory. Then I press F1 again and everything happens the same again!! Please help me!!
