I had 4GB (2GBX2) RAM installed on my laptop. I wanted to upgrade my RAM to 8GB. So I bought Kingston HyperX Impact Black 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 Notebook Ram (HX316LS9IB/8). http://goo.gl/ZpfAV4 I used Crucial's scan to get specific information about compatible RAMs (since I don't live in USA, I can't purchase from Crucial's website nor from Kingston and Kingston doesn't have my laptop in its category). Using the information found on the site I purchased the following RAM but it doesn't work. I installed my 8GB RAM. Made sure it is fitted nicely. Computer starts and I can hear the drives running but screen stays black and computer seems to start by itself now and then or fan stops now and then. Nothing comes up. No warning nor any fault messages. What am I doing wrong? Can the RAM be not compatible with my laptop's system?
My laptop is Asus K52JT. But on the RAMs (original RAMs) show this DDR3 2GB-1333 SSZ3128M8-EDJEF .
So I tried this. I placed one of the 2GB RAMs with 8GB RAM and and checked BIOS. It shows that there is 10GB RAM in total but when Windows boots up it freezes at booting up. Shows starts but nothing comes up and fan heats up. I tried booting only with one 2GB RAM and it does boot.
