Initial blue screen of death is probably caused by the ram.
install original ram and see if everything is ok, next install 1 of your upgrade sticks, reboot and see what happens, if it fails use the other stick, if it still fails, sell those on e-bay and run a scan from crucial.com and see what is compatible.

Blue screen when trying upgrade memory


If you are adding more RAM to the existing RAM then then new RAM maybe incompatible with the existing RAM. Use RAM that is the same specs as the existing RAM and from the same manufacturer.

You can add 1GB of ram but that's it. Definately not a 2GB Stick or 4GB stick.

Remove thwe new RAM and hard drive. Does it boot to the BIOS menu? If yes, add the hard drive and do the same again then add RAM and do the same.
I suspect something does not fit in properly. Probably the RAM.
Don't forget to initialise the hard drive if trying to format it. The System disk should take care of that.

Won't boot up gets blue screen asking for us to


Usually if you've encounter a blue screen the first cause of this should be the RAM. Check the RAM maybe it is clogged by the dust you need to clean the RAM. If the same things happen you must reset also the CMOS battery and the jamper. The jamper located near the CMOS battery at the south bridge.

In any other circumstances to solve this you need to install a fresh copy of windows. Some causes of blue screen is the corrupted software that need a full copy.

Upgrading ram on laptop, new ram not recognized.


remove the bios battery for a few seconds...and place it back on ...this will make it see the new ram memory modules...if you are sure they are compatible ..they will work .....in fact ..the ddr1 333 512 M is more that compatible with your system and it will work after you remove the battery ...\ my recommendation is to reinstall a clean operation system after you boot up ...and format the C partition too...this have to be done after memory changes to get the max out of them ..

No display after upgrading RAM


Are you saying that there are only 2 slots for ram or 4, if 4 then you may have a dual channel lap top, in which case you need all of the ram to match, they all have to be the same exact ram.you cant mix and match, also is the bios recent, it sounds like you may need a bios flash if the laptop isn't recent.And there may be a limitation on the amount of ram it takes, I just setup a brand new acer and it only two gig max, see if they offer a bios update

Error message after installing memory ram upgrade.....


The memory appears to be the right kind.

Try installing just one 1GB module, and run the diagnostics (press F12 at boot time and select diagnostics).

Good luck!
