redbull2013 Posted January 27, 2013 Share Posted January 27, 2013 I have an older laptop (HP Pavilion ze4900) which I use for surfing while sitting on the couch. It's been dropped a couple of times, so the screen is going out periodically. I picked up a slightly newer model, Pavilion ze5300, which had no HDD or wireless card or memory. I put the HDD, memory and wireless network card and memory into the new laptop, it won't POST with 1GB of memory. It POSTs and works just fine with two 256MB modules of memory, but won't POST with two 512MB of memory, or with one 512MB memory module. Both the 256MB modules and the 512MB modules are PC2700 DDR333. The 512MB modules are Corsair and I know they work just fine in the ze4900. Both the ze4900 and the ze5300 specs say that they both recognize 512MB memory modules and take up to 1GB of memory. I flashed BIOS with no change. Tried putting a 256mb module in together with a 512, it only recognizes the 256 module, whether it is in slot 1 or 2 Any other ideas? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
