hi

i have recently upgraded my ram. it is of the same speed and by the same manufacturer its just double the capacity. the laptop recognizes there is 1gb of ram inside but the graphic cards spazs out everytime i try to boot windows. it works in safe mode fine and allows me online but when i go to reboot my pc it looks fine then the screen goes black and nothing happens

i have rolled back the drivers that did not work i then uninstalled them and reinstalled the latest ones from the manufacures site still nothing it is an oldish laptop the samsung v25

if anyone has any ideas please help or if you need more information please ask

thanks

Jon

Can you go to Safe Mode and make sure the advanced settings refresh rate is correct for your monitor. Try setting it to 60Hz and 800x600 then reboot. I can't imagine why adding RAM would effect the graphics unless you physically damaged the notebook when you added the RAM.

Doubt it is conflict with the "graphic card", probably another issue at hand. Need to explain to us what exactly is happening when you say
"spazs out everytime i try to boot windows"
Need more details
And complete system specs
