I have a alienware m11x r2 and I recently bought some new RAM for it. However after installing it, when windows boots up a "Windows fails to start" page appears. I am then giving the option to repair windows, but this just loads a screen that says "windows is loading files." This does nothing though, and it simply reboots. I'm thinking that I might have bought RAM that is not compatible with my system.
I bought 2 sticks of DDR3 1600 1.5V RAM and I believe that previous RAM was DDR3 800 1.35V. Is this the reasons it does not seem to take the new RAM? I thought I read that in the BIOS you can set values for RAM speed and voltage, but there are no such options - though the BIOS does recognize the new RAM.
Is there a way to make this new RAM compatible, or do I need to buy another kind? Thanks!
