Problem Installing Corsair Memory into Gateway M520x


Recommended Posts



I recently purchased a stick of CORSAIR D333 VS1GSDS333 from NewEgg to install into my old laptop, a Gateway M520x. I used both the newegg memory tool as well as the tool on the Corsair site to ensure compatibility.


After installing the memory and booting the laptop the computer freezes and the graphics warp at various stages during the boot. Sometimes during the windows Xp loading logo, and sometimes right after the desktop loads. Either way the computer is inoperable. If I reinstall my old 256MB stick the computer works well.


In the BIOS page the memory count looks good and the laptop is stable. I've run the windows memory diagnostic from CD and the memory checks out fine. Do you have any idea what my problem may be and how to correct it?
