I have a hp Pavilion a450n which comes with one Ram stick of 512MB. Max Ram supported is 2GB (2x1GB) (dual slot). I have two new identical 1GB Ram sticks that are compatible with my machine. The problem is when I install both 1GB Ram sticks the computer loads the desktop and just as it finishes loading the last start-up program it reboots. It does this process repeatedly until one of the 1GB Ram sticks is removed. Basically it only boots and runs successfully if only 1 of the 3 Ram sticks i have is installed alone.
Both 1Gb sticks= Fail
1GB stick with 512MB - fail
Any one single stick in either slot- Success
All sticks work by themselves but none together.
I am trying to have the full 2GB Max Ram my system supports (at least supposed to).
Any help will GREATLY be appreciated!!
(Hp Customer Support had no solution)
