Solved New ram won't work.

November 17, 2011 at 14:38:04
Specs: Windows 7, 2GB ram
I bought a new stick of pc2-5300 ram and it won't work in my Gateway MD2614u laptop which has a Samsung pc2-5300s installed already. I tried it with just the new one and it still didn't work! They're both 200 pin and they're both 667mhz, so I have no idea why they won't work together. Please HELP?!?!

Is the original stick the same size as the new stick. Sometimes mother boards won;t take 1 2GB stick while 2 1GB will be fine.

Yeah they're both the same size, both 667mhz. the one that's in the laptop is pc2-5300s and the new one is pc2-5300, don't know if the "s" matters or not...

I would go back to the people who sold it to you.
