First, make sure you have the correct memory for your Notebook. Please refer to Kingston’s on-line Memory Search at www.kingston.com for assistance. After you confirm that you have the correct memory for your system, do the following:

  1. Prior to memory installation, first shut down the Notebook, then remove the battery pack and unplug the power cord. Reseat the memory firmly into the socket and then push down on the memory to lock it in place. Replace the battery pack and power cord and boot the system. If the installation is still unsuccessful, try inserting the memory into a different slot, if available.
  2. If you have properly installed the recommended memory and the PC still does not boot or recognize the memory, you may need to download the latest BIOS from your computer manufacturer’s Website.

Note: Kingston is in no way responsible for any problems resulting from flashing the BIOS. Flashing the BIOS is merely a troubleshooting suggestion. Customers who flash the BIOS do so at their own risk. All instructions on how to upgrade the BIOS will be provided by the computer manufacturer or the 3rd party BIOS manufacturer and not by Kingston.
