Having serious issues with 2GB DDR2 PC2-5300/200-Pin So-Dimm


Recommended Posts

I had a single stick of Corsair 1GB PC2-5300 in my Compaq V3000z laptop for about 2 weeks with absolutely no problems which I recently returned for a sale at Frys Electroncs. Part # VS1GSDS667D2


Frys.com had a sale a few days ago on " Corsair 2GB DDR2 PC2-5300 / 667MHz" which I received today. Ever since I installed the ram, I've been getting blue screen and automatic restarts. Eventually my laptop started to freeze.




The Part # on the UPC says "VS2GSDSKIT667D2" and on the corsair website, that part # is PC-5300 ram and not PC2-5300.


The part # on the ram itself is VS1GSDS667D2 which is PC2-5300.



2 Different part #'s for RAM. Confusion

Laptop freezes and gets blue screen after installtion

VS2GSDSKIT667D2 is the Kit part# and is made with 2 VS1GSDS667D2 modules!


Also with is the make and model of NB you have may require DDR2-533 memory, but I cannot find it listed in our memory configurator or a Technecicole spec for this NB to be sure!


But to be sure I would test the modules one at a time with http://www.memtest.org.
