I opened my HP Pavilion 23 (non Touchscreen) and found the single 4gb RAM chip and replaced it with a single 8gb chip (DDR3) and the Computer would not boot. I tried this three times with no luck and am now back to the 4gb chip. Best Buy looked up the compatibility and said that it was the correct 8gb chip so what am I doing wrong? FYI - there are two chip slots but only the top one is being used.
There are dozens of models in the Pavilion 23 series, which one do you have? And you didn't provide any info about the RAM you bought - brand, speed, voltage,etc. I also don't understand why you didn't go with 2 x 4GB?
