Specs: Windows 7, Toshiba C660-1LR
Hello! I bought a memory from Mr. Memory (4gb ddr3 1066 mhz sodimm) to upgrade my Toshiba c660 -1lr which is already running 2gb ddr3 10600 sodimm memory.
I put the original ram out and fixed the Mr. Memory ram in my laptop and powered on my laptop it does not start the windows , when i go to setup on startup it shows : Installed Memory = 4gb

But when i close the setup only a black screen with a (--) (dash) blinks at first and then stops blinking and remains on screen and nothing happens next.

My laptop can take maximum of 8gb ddr3 1066mhz sodimm / 10600 mhz sodimm.

Can you tell me a solution to this?

Ram i bought is = IN3V4GNYBGI

Please help

Check if hdd is recognized and if boot order is correct.

"upgrade my Toshiba c660"

The model number is incomplete. There should be 3 more characters after the C660. The model should be something like C660-10J. The added characters are important in determining how much RAM your laptop can take. Some C660's max out at 8GB, but others can only accept 4GB.

Ooops, I missed the -1LR. I don't think that was there earlier though because I copy/pasted the model number. Maybe the OP edited the post?

Hello! kuwese
I checked and it recognizes the hdd and the boot order is correct because when i put the genuine ram in, it comes back to its working order

Laptops can be fussy about what RAM will run correctly. That is why most RAM vendors have System Specific RAM listed. There are many other specs for RAM besides the type and speed. I suggest you just return the RAM for a refund and buy RAM that has been tested in your model or matches ALL the OEM specs for the original RAM.
