I tried upgrading to 8 gb (2x4GB) Kingston RAM - Kingston ValueRAM DDR3 4 GB Laptop RAM KVR13S9S8/4 as its specs matched exactly same with my current ram but it didn't worked well - system kept on restarting, windows never booted. i checked the from the bios and the the new ram was detected by system. Also i have the latest updated BIOS for my system.

Sorry my message might look like spam but i want to give complete details that i have with me.
Can anyone please help here, i need to upgrade my laptop ram from 4gb to 8gb

Thanks in advance!!

  1. I believe you can download or run on-line compatibility checkers at both Kingston.com and Crucial.com.

    http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/systemscanner

    http://www.kingston.com/us/memory/search/options/
  2. Thanks @Karsten .. i ll run and share the results


    *******************************************

    AN UPDATE:

    i checked crucial.com and the result was http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/scanview/DA24E88831D926C3
    NO detailed info about current ram in the left panel.
    It shows only the compatible ram of 1.35 v and i now have a ques why AIDA and CPUZ show 1.5v ram whereas this website shows compatible RAM and not the actual specification.

    Another major issue: i cant order anything from crucial as i don't live in US or countries where they deliver. So i have to search in my country same specification ram. i had ordered one Kingston RAM KVR13S9S8/4, but that was not suported
