Installed New RAM in laptop. Led works but screen is blank.

Hp Compaq 6730s.
Just installed 2 sticks of new RAM (2GB each) but the screen won't come on.
Switched each with original 1 GB stick and tried them both solo - still doesn't work.

Only the original RAM is working.

Please help.

Did you check the type of RAM you are inserting maybe the RAM is not compatible
a ram has many specifications including the frquency at which it works

so check if you got the right ram for the laptop
the frequncy is something like 533, 800 Mhz so see the one you had originally and get the one required for the laptop

    then there might be a problem with the ram you have received as there may not be any problem in the way you are inserting the ram as the original ones are working


    but still try this thing may be there might be a setting in the bios for the change in rom i do not know wheter there is one or not but try to enter your bios and try to put it to default & safe mode and then reboot

Welcome to the wonderful world of laptop ram

There are many different makes and configurations of Ram and unless the replacements are exactly like the ones that are in the machine all bets are off.

If it says Samsung on the original chips then you need to source a Samsung replacement.

You cannot just buy "Ram" from anywhere and have it work, you may get lucky but !!

go to www.crucial.com and type in the details of your machine they will tell you what is compatible and more important what your motherboard is capable of running.

If you search using your own machine then their diagnostic tool will check you machine out and give you a report

They are a brilliant company who have never let me down yet

Upgrade my RAM from 1Gb to 2Gb everything is working but the cumputer still register 1 Gb of ram


Did you buy a 2GB ram stick or did you buy 1GB ram X2 so in your laptop you have only 1 stick of ram in there thats 2GB or do you have 2 sticks of ram in there which are 1GB if you have 2 sticks in there means one of them dead and is not registering it on your computer if you have only 1 stick in there thats 2GB but your system only reading it as 1GB then you will need to update your bios as it could be set only to read 1GB

Bsod when adding 1gb of ram to my compaq 2200 laptop


jayson30

In regards to the memory issue the problem is that your notebook only support 1gb of memory so you will have to split it between 2 512 sticks as that is the max the computer can handle. This is why the system blue screens with the 1bg stick.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

MacBook Pro 15'' RAM Problems


The earliest MacBook (Pro) models have a limit of 2 GB. To check the specific model, in the Apple menu select about this Mac. Then press more info... . Look at the line like "Model Identifier: MacBook5,2" for my white early 2009 MacBook. If the numbers are 1,1 then for sure you have the oldest model and are memory limited to 2 GB, as the sum of both cards.
That's just like my wife's, it was a Core Duo and not the current Core 2 Duo. Works fine. I was ready to up its memory but read about this in the Apple Support Forum. It came originally with 1 stick of 512 MB, IIRC. I upgraded it to 2x1 GB for a lot more than the 2x2 GB in the newer. BTW some of the Macs between these only take 3 GB but will work with 2x2 GB just throwing 1 GB away. -Ken

How much more memory can I install


This laptop can support up to a max of 1 GB of RAM , so if you buy 1 stick of 1 GB of RAM you need to take out the 768 MB and just put the 1 stick of 1 GB RAM, or your other option is to buy a 256 MB of RMA so your computer will still have a max of 1 GB of RAM and that would be cheaper and you can still use your old RMA on your laptop , this is the lin for the complete specs of your laptop http://www.dealtime.com/xPF-Compaq-Refurbished-COMPAQ-P4-M-1-8GHZ-256MB-30GB-14-1-TFT-CDRW-W-XP

To Be pricise ...there is no hardware problem.
The problem can be two.

1.Your computer supports max of 1.5 GB RAM.....For this check with other vendors too.

2.You have to update your BIOS.

If you can provide me the motherboard no and details i can clarify more on it
