So, I had no issues with my laptop (HP DV6119US) until I upgraded on the memory last night. This morning at startup, I get the power buttons and the laptop appears to be on, however, I have a black screen. I shutdown and restarted, pressed F10 and I get video. Currently running a Hard Disk Self Test, No issues.

OS: MS Windows XP w/2 Kingston 1 Gb DDR2 RAM modules.

Question: Can anybody tell me what's going on with my system? Laptop was running fine, perhaps I should remove and re-install memory modules?? Or, go back to "as issued" memory of 1 Gb total RAM?

Update: I see the HP "splash" at start-up, and quickly disappears, but nothing more than the follow-on black screen.


Thank you,

Centennial, CO

I would go back to the original configuration and see if it works again, most definitely
