R51 will not boot with 2 GIGs of RAM

October 20, 2011 at 11:23:24
Specs: Windows XP
I work on several R51 laptops and understand that 2x 1 GIG PC2700 RAM is the max it is supposed to handle. I'm currently working on a laptop that will boot with 1 stick of 1 Gig PC2700 but not 2. I've run into this before and the simple solution was to just use 1 GIG of RAM, but I'm wondering if others have run into this problem and have a better solution.

Have you checked both memory modules to make sure they are good?
Are both modules identical? Sometimes modules with different specs or even different manufacturers will cause problems.

Both modules are good and identical. They work separately, but not together in the R51. I've had this issue before on R51 laptops also with identical new sets of RAM.
