I had the opportunity to return the Corsair memory for a full refund so took this option. However this month I obtained 4 GB of Mushkin PC5300 ram that was recommended to me. I fitted this and had exactly the same problem receiving the PFN_LIST_CORRUPT blue screen on Windows boot up. This time I decided to format the computer so fitted the 4 GB of Mushkin ram and booted up from the Windows Vista disc ready to format. However as soon as it started to load the Windows files I received the blue screen again. Next I tried by fitting back the old 2 GB of ram then booting from the CD, formatting and installing Vista 64 bit. After the install and before installing any drivers or software I swapped the ram to the new 4 GB and booted up but then received the blue screen PFN_LIST_CORRUPT again.
Contacted HP to raise a ticket as per your suggestion but was told because the laptop was out of warranty they could not do anything.

I had the same problem (Vista 32 would not accept 4GB memory, or even 3 GB). It seems that a certain combination of Vista and BIOS don't lower the 4GB installed memory (because your video and other things use DDR2 memory)enough (you should see about 3.25 GB), and the total memory calculated by the system adds up to more than 4GB. You CAN install 3GB as long as you place the 1 GB memory stick in the slot closest to the motherboard. Put the 2GB stick on top of it. I hope this works for you.

well its my understanding that some motherboards are built to only except a certain amount of ram. a 64bit system is a bit much to ask of a machine with this much ram anyway. try downgrading to 7 or maybe moving to linux mint if you mainly use you laptop for browsing and emails
