Everything worked fine when starting up and memory was recognized. But when browsing internet, after a bit, the screen dimmed and froze and I got a message saying I needed to manually reset. Has happened a number of times since.
I'm guessing this is a memory problem? I made sure to discharge before installing.
Is it the version of this ram you think, or should I just try to exchange for a new chip and try again. It was pretty cheap - like $60 I believe but should work fine.
I believe the speed is 1066 see the link. Make sure the ram stick is right then
things will work
