Ram Problem

by Richkf6bka / April 13, 2008 6:23 AM PDT

I have a HP Pavillion ZE2117US. I bought a 1GB ram stick. From all my research to the best of my knowlege its the right one. I pulled out the 2 256MB sticks and installed the 1 gb. I started the computer and got the HP splash screen and windows started. I logged into windows and then got a BSOD. I don't know what the error was as it restarted to fast. If I put the old sticks in everything works fine.

Any Ideas?

Laptops can be picky. You may find that generics won't do.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
