I cannot help you with any specific settings on your system. I haven't run into laptops that have any signifigant memory settings in their BIOS.
I can tell you that you are not alone. I run into memory incompatabilities weekly on laptops. I keep about 10 different sticks of DDR2 (512 and 1gig sticks) in stock just to cover my bases for customers who want upgrades. I will sometime swap out 4 to 5 different sticks just to find one that works with a system. No rhyme nor reason to it. Sometimes a dirt cheap no name memory stick will work whereas a nice stick of Corsair won't boot.
I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)
3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)
