Bios do not recognize the ram upgrade - PC Laptops

Answers :

Try swiching the slots, if you are using a laptop, does not matter if the stickas are the same size but it does matter how much you are trying to install because older laptops have BIOS indtructions that may not recognize large memory sticks. If you have desktop, in most cases the memoty has to be installed in pairs and in some cases, the same size. Last but not least if everything is correct and the sticks are seated fully in the slots.....the sticks may be bad or defective.
\015\012I would recommend checking to make sure your memory is compatable to your notebook. (speed) This can cause your system not to "see" the memory.
