Hiya all !
I've just bought 2 gb (2x1 DDR2 PC2 5300S Danelec on Ebay) to upgrade my toshiba M40 307. Originally, the tosh had 512mo PC2 4200S. Once installed, the computer just beeps and keeps trying to boot. Tried a few times and still does it. I earthed myself and took precautions necessary for the battery, etc.
Does this mean that the RAM is dead, or do I need to change something ( what???) in the BIOS? Can there be some incompatibility? According to Crucial site (ram not bought there), this ram IS compatible with this machine.
Many thanks for your advice !
Its possible, if you tried both sticks and they gave the same error. It could be the memory is bad or it could be that the motherboard doesn't like either the timings of the ram, the voltage of the ram, or the speed of the ram.
