Recommended Posts

hi, I just got home from a long drive to frys and when I use the corsair ddr2 667mhz 2x2gb sodimm into my presario c700 it keeps rebooting itself and the other option to repair windows would give me the blue screen

 

im running windows 7 x86, is it because its not the x64 version its not working?

 

please help, thx

Is this the C700 Custom Order laptop, or a variation of the C700 (e.g. C700EM, C700ET, C700LA, C700T, C700XX?

 

What is the exact part # of the memory you purchased?

 

Are you mixing this memory with the memory that originally came with the laptop?

hey! thx for the reply

 

its not a custom c700, bought a year ago at bestbuy and this is the first upgrade to the hardware, for now im running windows 7 beta as os, and thats it

 

the memory i got was a ddr2 2x2gb pc5300 dual so 667mhz part number

 

VS4GSDSKIT667D2 G

 

and i have 2 slots, previoulsy with 2x512, i just removed those and istalled the new ones and that problem appears

 

 

later last night I removed one of then and its running now on 2gb no problems, now Im thinking about trying the other one and see if it works too

 

hope ill hear from u again, alex

Please try the following instructions, in order to get your system to recognize the new memory:

 

1. Remove all RAM

2. Power on system

3. Let it run for 20-30 seconds (system may power off prior to 20secs)

4. Remove battery and AC (to insure power is off)

5. Only install the Corsair RAM

6. Check if system is stable

 

If you still have problems I would test each module one at a time and make sure you do not have a single module that may be causing the problems.

tested each module at a time, worked fine, put both together, blue screen of death

From the specs I could find for this system they state that it will only accept up to 3GB of memory. You may want to see if there are any BIOS updates that might improve compatibility, otherwise you may want to exchange the 4GB kit for a single 2GB module and see if it will work with one of the original memory modules.
