HP-M6-1125DX

 

 

2.50GHz 3rd generation Intel Core i5-3210M Processor with Turbo Boost Technology up to 3.10GHz

8GB DDR3 SDRAM (2 DIMM)

all specs

https://support.hp.c...ument/c03489413

 

Came with 2 4GB  ADATA PC3-12800

 

Laptop had blank screen when booted, only signs of life power light, red light WiFi, Caps lock key blinking 3, 3, 3, etc

Troubleshooting ended in in it being the RAM

Tested in RAM in husbands HP-g4-2275dx that takes the same RAM, it wouldn't run either

 

Replaced with 2 4GB Kingston PC3-12800, booted up fine, seems to run fine.

 

What I'd like to know -

1. Is there something else wrong with the computer that made the RAM go bad? Or is this just an odd thing that we've never had happen before? Have had 6 desktops, and 7 laptops. Actually still have all of them and they all run.

 

2. The other laptop we used to test the RAM - my instinct is telling me to replace the RAM in that one with Kingston also. What do you think?

 

Thanks for reading and for any advice

Quick question for you sitnah, when you tested the RAM did you test each stick individually or both together.

Individually.  Then put one of his ADATA in the HP-M6-1125DX, and left one of his ADATA in his computer. They both ran fine with only one.

 

Edited to correct - he had 1 ADATA in his & 1 KINGSTON he had added, both were working in his computer - since the KINGSTON was on top, that's the one we used to test daughters M6-1125DX computer.
