I recently purchased a second 8 GB RAM to upgrade my Laptop to 16 GB of RAM. The specs are matching and the laptop itself can be upgraded to 16 GB. When I insert the second RAM chip the laptop wont boot anymore. Caps Lock light is blinking. The laptop wont boot either if I only insert the newly purchased RAM but if I put the old chip into the second slot.
Already tried to remove battery and BIOS battery and checked if maximum RAM was limited in the msconfig settings.
I´ve attached a pic of the my old and the new RAM. I always thought that a chip that bears the identical number will work?
Thats what I tried already. Just the new module - only get a blinking caps lock and laptop wont even let me go in bios recovery mode. As you said I will purchase another module to rule out a faulty board... Thanks
