The memory is keyed and will only fit one way.
If it does not snap down then it is not seated completely. If it wobbles it is not seated.
Are you sure they sent the correct memory?
Mistakes happen and you should be able to return it if it is the wrong type.
Do you have another system you can try it in to be sure?

Manufacturer does not matter.
The issue is now if the memory is actually working or not. I asked before but you may have missed it. Do you have another system you can try the memory in to see if it is working?
This is important because if it is bad you can return it for a replacement

hmm ok can you get the old stick to allow you into windows?
If so please do the following and maybe we can get a hint of what the BSOD was.

Download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Thanks to Broni for the instructions and program


If this can't happen then do the following and we can tyr to catch the BSOD while it is happening.


  • Start your system and at the Second post screen tap on F8 to get to the Boot Menu
  • Use the Arrow Keys to Scroll down to the line that says "Auto Start On Error" and highlight it.
  • Click Enter to disable it
  • The system should reboot and if not then do so.
  • When the BSOD shows it will stop so that you can reply with the STOP ERROR and any parameters.
