So, I have an old Samsung laptop that I use for college. It has only 3 gb of ram, which is the only bad thing about the pc.

One of my friends had a 4GB SODIMM DDR3 ram stick and gave it to me. However,i think, it had a higher frequency than my laptop supports, As when I replaced one of the sticks the laptop didn’t boot.

Then, I put the original stick again and worked perfectly. Dumb me tried  again replacing it with the other stick and, of course, it didn’t boot. However when i put the original stick back in the laptop didn’t work. It just turns on but no image is shown. I connected to a tv via hdmi and nothing... I tried reseating the sticks but as you may have guessed the problem was still there. What should I do?

Thanks for your time.

The most likely thing is that the RAM stick is not properly seated. Take out any RAM you have in the computer at the moment, check that you have got the original RAM in it and make sure that it is snug in its housing before you push it down into the 'lock' position.


If RAM has a higher frequency than your system specs it will run at the system speed.
