M6-1035DX ram upgrade to 16gb failed

So i upgraded my hp m6-1035dx to 16gb from 6gb, they both have the same speed (pc312800). however when i did get a blue screen, i tried to figure out the problem but couldn't and hp support doesnt help, so how much memory can my laptop take, the new memory is Vengeance 8GB DDR3 1600MHz from corsair.

  1. It can handle 16GB: http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Pavilion%20m6-1035dx&Cat=RAM

    Have you tried one stick at a time? Also, what's the error when it blue screens?
  2. Are the timings the same on the new and old memory as well.

    I once had memory with tighter timings and a compaq notebook was just so slightly under-volting the memory enough to make it unstable at the programmed timings. A rather extreme solution was to reprogram the memory to report slightly more loose timings(I recommend you contact Corsair for help if you have any wish to go that route as it can cause many issues if you are not careful. I only did one stick since the notebook will default to the "slower" stick).

    I cant tell what the timing are but i checked a website and it gave me the timing of the vengance 10-10-10-27 while the other ram i was unable to get the timings but it is a hmt351s6cfr8c which is hynix

    If the second fails, sounds like bad RAM. To be sure, you can run Memtest to verify:

    what about the voltage i checked corsair website and it gave two different types of ram, one that ran 1.35v and the other which was 1.5v
