    HP Pavilion Notebook zv5000
    Original Memory = 512mg (256MB in each of the two memory bays)
    I just attempted to upgrade my memory with a 1GB module from Kingston.
    Module = 1GB PC2700 333 MHz KVR333SC/1GR

    The Notebook has 2 memory bays. 1 memory bay is accessible to the user. I replaced a 256MB module with the new 1GB module. I started the computer up and it booted just fine and pulled up my desktop screen. Then I received the blue screen with a message that Windows was shutting down. I removed the module and re-seated it and tried again. Now it only gets to the Windows screen and then goes to the blue screen. It looked so simple - HELP!!
