Ill suggest o you like many technician do when they messed around their workstation...
if that what you have done is similar to a desktop replacement of ram probably you just knocked out some of the components inside...

first thing check the specs of your old ram and compare it to your new ram... its not just buying the higher capacity but also considering the type of ram you are buying... you can't just put oddly different rams to replace the old one just because its has higher capacity... go to the store where you bought the new ram and show them your old ram for an assistance, hopefully the guy selling the ram knows what type of ram you really need (they should ask you that on the first place).

if the two rams you bought are similar to each other then you save your time going back to the shop where you bought the new ram... just open your system and make sure everything sets firm and if you can just the ram out and get a brush.... brush the dirt out of the connectors and use an eraser to your ram and erase the contact points...

if this helps just rate me to give thanks ok...

Adding memory to hp dv5000

On HP laptops the memory chips are usually stacked, sitting almost on top of each other...if the memory chip that's in there now is sitting in the first slot you may not be able to see the second slot below it. If that is the case, remove the chip that's in there now and install your two new ones.

Memory Error

You will need a new memory card, 1 gig or less, and not the new HS 1 gig cards. Look for a M type or get a 512 or smaller.

Memory Problem

Sounds like the memory chip is either the wrong frequency or it's bad. The frequency or type of memory for your machine is PC4200 or 533mhz, make sure the new chip is a PC4200 chip. If it is, then the chip may be bad. They are very static sensitive, and I've had a few bad chips straight out of the box. I've also ran into a couple of chips that were marked wrong and not the frequency on the label. This is definitely an issue with the memory chip and not your machine.

Ram memory

Okay, I have a stupid question, the more powerful the chip the hotter it runs. It could be the second slot will not work with a 1 gig because of heat issues and ventilation?

I have the same problem, with 2 one gig chips. I am going to try to replace the easy access slot with a 1/2 gig chip. I'll let you know.

Continual reboot with second memory module

Your memory isn't an exexact match. The 512MB you have in is probablyis Kingston, part # KT3311/512, PC2100/2700, 512MB DDR. You should get Kingston part # KT3311/1G, PC2100/PC2700, 1 GB DDR. You can use another manufacturer but everything must match exactly execpt the size of course. The speed, DDR, everything. Make sure you have the new chip seated correctly and in all the way first. Of course if it doesn't match the specs of your other chip it won't matter. Best thing to do if buying locally is take the first chip with you. If not buying locally, have it with you when you order to make sure it matches.

Hp Pavillion laptop freezes when I install secondary memory

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.

Install 2 RAM modules of 1 GB

The other memory may be soldered in. Check your manual and see if it has any information on additional memory. If you only have on expansion slot you may have to buy larger memory chips. like instead of 2 chips 1 gig each you may have to purchase a 2 gig chip. Computer companies usually make the chip installation easy to get to on lap tops.
