I have Dell N4010 laptop with 4GB ram (1333 Mhz, 2X2) purchased in Jan 2011. Recently I bought transcend 4GB 1333 and have removed existing 2GB ram and replaced with 4GB to increase the physical memory to 6GB. I can see that the ram has been detected and the total is showing up in Bios. After this, the system does not boot, it just keep restarting.
I tried to start with safemode, however the files load but at the end, I receive a blue screen with error like '...Bad pool header...'.
OS: Windows 7 x64
Bios version: A13
please advise/ let me know if you require any information.
If the system works with the original RAM, try just hte new RAM alone. If it doesn't work that way, it's either faulty or incompatible RAM.
When I ran with the new ram alone, I am facing 'IRQL_LESS_OR_EQUAL_ERROR' BSOD.
I have checked the system specifications and found that 'the ram speed has been capped to 1066 though it is 1333 mhz'. By this I understand that the current running 2X2GB rams are running at 1066 Mhz. How is this impacting my new ram? Is there any specification that I have to change in BIOS or other place?
Is this issue got resolved ? I am also facing the same issue.
