I have installed some new memory in my HP NX6310 laptop.
It comes with 256mb and I have added another 512mb.
Crucial CT6464AC53E, 512mb 200pin sodimm 64m x 64 DDR2 PC2-4200
The specs of the new memory matches the original, but when I boot the laptop I get to a screen that says there has been a configuration change and shows the new amount of memory. I am given the following options............
F1 to save F2 to ignore F10 to go to computer set up
No matter which of these press nothing further happens.
If I take out the memory, the laptop boots up as normal.
Yes usually that is correct. You should put the higher of the two memory chips, in this case the 512MB should go in the slot that the 256 was in then put the 256 in the other. Also does your computer start normallyt with just the 512 chip in it?
I am also looking to upgrade the ram on compaq nx6310. I was trying to find which was compatable, but when I used the kingston online memory finder it gave me various pc2-4200 chips, but when I used the critcal site it gave me pc2-4200 but also 5700 as well, do you know what the difference is and if it is right that both are compatable with my laptop. thanks tobyb
