notamos Posted November 1, 2013 Share Posted November 1, 2013 I have an Elitebook 8440p (Intel Core i5-560M) that currently has 2GB of Samsung DDR3 memory (256x8) installed. It is running Win7Pro-64bit. Anyway, I purchased 2x4GB of Corsair Value Select memory (CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9) for it. Neither SODIMM worked - in either slot, so it was RMA'd. I received the replacement memory - same problem. I power it on, set the BIOS to defaults (BIOS does detect the full 8GB of memory) - and it begins a power on/power off cycle that never stops. Old memory = Samsung 2GB, 256x8, DDR3, 1333, 7-7-7-20 (part M471B5773CHS-CH9) New Memory = Corsair 4GB (each), 512x8, DDR3, 1333, 9-9-9-24 (part CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9) Processor bus = 1066 (memory should run @ this, right?) Thoughts on this? From everything I can find, this memory should be compatible. I filed a ticket w/ Corsair but have yet to get a response. BTW - 8440p is running the latest BIOS. ETA: Got it to start memtest 1x on the initial boot - froze the machine immediately. Since then, only the power on/power off cycles. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
