Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
I purchased 512 addit'l memory for the laptop and installed it in the slot on the bottom of the laptop. After that it would not boot, get to the post screen and stop, and ocasoinaly it would boot but freeze after about 3 minutes. If I boot to Diagnostic CD it would freeze but take a longer time to do so.
Removed the chip and left it out. booted and ran fine. Replaced origional 256 chip and sill freezes. Ran memory test and all passed. Memory is correct for the systemas well.
Finally I put the new 512 stick in the primary slot under the key board and it runs well. Again, I put one of the origional 256 in the secondary slot, again it started to freeze. switched chips with the other 256 chip and same result.
There are no Bios settings that can be changed; this board has a basic bios setup. cannot see it being a heat issue because it hapens when the systen first starts i the morning and when it is warmed up.
Ive done as much research on this problem but still fail to find any solutions.

if you need more info let me know
You may not put all together the 256 and 512, the system encountered error when two memory are not equal size and not equal brand.
Either you select 2 units 256 memory or either 2 units 512. or use only 1 unit 512 memory so that no freezes will happen.
