Memory problems, AGAIN.
Today the memory I ordered for my laptop arrived. 4GB pc2-6400 CL4 from kingston. Just pop it in and have a nice day you say? Wrong!
I installed the sticks and whenever I try to boot I get BSODS. To be more precise, i get a stop error: pfn_list_corrupt (0x0000004E). A quick look-up revealed no surprise. Memory issues.
Putting my one working stick from the old set back in got it working again from the start, so sure enough the problem is the new memory. Anyone an idea as how to solve this? I tried flashing the latest bios, but that didn't seem to make a difference.
That being said, I hate laptop bios's. Besides checking the time of day you can do just about nothing.
Some specs: Said laptop is a hp pavilion dv6599.
CPU: intel T7300
Standard memory is 2*1Gb pc2-5300. (ddr2-667)
My guess would be that somehow the memory doesn't revert to the slower speed? Or would it be possible the board can't handle the low timings? It really craps me out that I can't fiddle with these settings myself.
