Satallite A500-1f4 Memory upgrade to 8 Giga bytes - Windows 7

I have upgraded my laptop A500-1f4 running windows 7 - 64 Bit - from RAM 4 GB to 8 gigabytes.

 

Now the BIOS can read the 8 Gigabytes [2 * 4 GB - bus 1066 MHz] , however windows never started, just hang and screen blank and never changed.

 

When i remove the * GB memory and install original one 4 GB [2 * 2 GB] it works fine.

 

I even tried to use only 4 GB [1 memory chip - 4 GB] but also same issue and read on BIOS but windows never started.

 

Can you help Me ?

 

I need to upgrade memory to 8 GB , Kindly advise me

This is the US site. Probably better to post in the European forums.

 

   Toshiba Support Forums in Europe

 

It's known that Toshiba machines are finicky about memory. Best to order directly from Toshiba or purchase modules made by Kingston.
