Blank screen after changing ram

I have a Toshiba Satellite L30-101(model ni- PSL33E-029023EN)
I got a extra ram when i bought it ages ago.so it currently has
512mb 2Rx16 PC2-4200s (samsung)
512mb 2Rx16 PC2-5300s (Elixir)

I bought 2 x
1gb 2Rx16 PC2-6400s

I checked that it can take 2gb ram, and it can. And i thought as its aready got a samsung ram, it would be compatible.
When i put the new ram in it boots up but screen remains blank

When you power up computer press F8 key then enter in enable vga mode.
Then change screen resolution to 1024*768 then aply and ok.
and ifg not able to see enable vga mode then check your ram frequency may be it is not compatible with it.

Toshiba Satellite A215-S7407 ram upgrade


Try to disconnect the new ram you just bought one at the time to see which one is defective. Also, 32 bit operating systems won't detect 4 Gb or ram, but they will show 3 Gb (even though they will use all 4 Gb). To resolve this issue, make sure that if you are using windows Vista to download the latest service pack 1.
