I am attempting to install 512MB SDRam in Elite Group Desknote 901 laptop. The machine can take 1GB of memory. However on booting up it will not get as far as Windows. The machine re-boots and then displays a "stop" screen, but too quickly to read. I know it is the correct memory and that it is functioning properly as I have tested it in another machine. Any suggestions will be very welcome.
No, I am trying to install it as a single stick. This is the second one I have tried in the machine. The first one generated the same fault but on that occasion I could read the "stop" screen. Microsoft Knowledge Base indicated it was a memory fault, so I bought the current stick, which as I have said, I know is OK. Is it possible for it to be a bios problem as the bios seems pretty old.
This may seem like a silly question, but are you running Windows 98? Having just tried in vain to add additional memory, I have found that '98 does not like in excess of 1Gb of RAM. click here gives more info.
