    I have a HP zv5160 laptop. There is 512MB of shared RAM leaving only 386 MB for processing. I went to HP's website and it said a 512MB 333 MHZ DDR SDRAM would fit this machine. I purchased a Kingston 512MB DDR SODIMM for notebooks, KVR33320/512R. I swapped the existing 256MB that was accessed through a panel on the bottom and put in the new 512MB and when I booted the machine up the screen was blank. I had to remove the battery to shut down. Put the old memory back and still no screen. Any ideas why this may have happend and how to fix?

    reseated memory, it is now ok!!!
