asus eee pc 1015 memory upgrade problem, black screen on start up

I'm installing a memory upgrade to an asus eee pc 1015

I purchased a
G.SKILL 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Laptop Memory Model F3-1333C9S-4GSL

I was told the 2 gig would be a fine upgrade but for the price difference I just went with a 4gb. I started the computer with the one gb stick in there and it runs fine. I put the 4gb stick in there and upon start up it is just a black screen. I can take the 4gb stick out and put the original back in and it works just fine.

Am I missing something? I am far from an expert but I generally know enough to get around and make things work. This is the first time I've ever really worked on a laptop though.

    Asus Eee PC 1015 Series support a memory upto 2GB, you can confirm it with Asus support. Most of the online retailers also suggest only upto 2GB. Bottomline 4GB will not work.:oops:

    RMA it and get a 2GB module.

    Cheers!!! :cheese:
