Memory upgrade from 4G to 8G

HP Recommended
dv6-2150ee
Linux

Hi ,

I have an old HP notebook dv6-2150ee that i have successfully replaced its old HDD with a new 256G SSD and the system now works flawlessly 🙂 ... but when iv tried to replace the old 2X2G memory with a new 2X4G which has the following specs:

https://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/KVR13S9S8K2_8.pdf 

everything seems to work like normally do at first, the BOIS detected an 8G of RAM and no beeping or error message at the start.

Unfortunately, The problem now is that the notebook freezes while loading the OS 😞

 

Ubuntu (Linux) comes with a tool memtest86+  that allows you to test memory at the start up, and when i do the test and after a short period of time the system reboot without giving any clues to what just happened, which indicates that something is not normal.   I went to store and replaced the item - assuming that i purchased a bad memory - with a new one, but with no luck 😞

 

any advise, please help...

 

P.S.  BIOS version F13 and vender Insyde

Hi:

 

HP notebooks and desktop PC's with the Intel series 5 chipsets are very hard to get the right memory for.

 

You can read this discussion about the subject...

You're very welcome.

 

Yes, it is crazy that you can't just add a DDR3 or DDR3L 1600 memory chip in those PC's.
