RAM upgrade HP pavillion dv6 2140el

HP Pavillion dv6 2140el
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

 

I would like to freshen up my Notebook Hp Pavillion dv6 replacing standard 2x2Gb RAM with 2x4Gb. I have tried with these:

 

>> HyperX Impact HX316LS9IB/4 memoria 4GB 1600MHz DDR3L CL9 SODIMM 1.35V   but at boot up system crashed providing error message KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE

 

I was told frequence was wrong (1600) compared to original therefore I baught the second pair 1333Mhz which is exactly the same Frequence PC mounts from factory. I baught these two:

 

>> Kingston KCP313SS8/4 Memoria RAM da 4GB, 1333MHz, DDR3, 1.5V, CL9, Nero 

 

unfortunately same problem:  KERNEL SECURITY CHECK FAILURE

 

 

Original RAM are: ELPIDA DDR3 SO-DIMM 2GB Memory Ram PC3-10600S-9-10-F1

 

 

Help!

Thanks a bunch,

 

Marco

It's that i7 first generation machine and is very finicky about memory. It will take 8 gigs but the proper memory is actually DDR3-1066 also known as PC3-8500. 

 

Memory modules, PC3, 1066-MHz FSB ■ 4096-MB 579156-001

If this is the memory you installed:

 

http://www.macmall.com/p/Kingston-DIMM-Memory/product~dpno~13790966~pdp.baadcedd

 

It is high density 4 black blocks per side and there is all kind of documentation of issues with it on your model series. 

 

The memory must have 8 black blocks per side (low density) to play nice with the HP.

Thanks for your prompt feedback. So the problem with the one I have used is that it has 8 modules on one side and only 4 on the other...?  OK I will return it back to Amazon and purchase the new one and let you know. Thanks for now!
