Question about HP Compaq 6730s Notebook PC KS128UTABA$422 instant savings
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.
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
