I just bought 4GB DDR3 RAM for my Lenovo Ideapad Y560 laptop. Before, I have 2GB+1GB DDR3 RAM, so I think the new one will be okay.
After plugging it in, I can't boot my Windows 7 OS. I can't boot installation of Windows 7 OS. I can't boot even memtest86.
Can someone help me with that? What can I do with that?

Hi hyperxd ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Based on the product RAM specification :
4GB or 8GB std / 8GB max7 ; PC3-up to 1333MHz DDR3, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets
Recommended RAM upgrade as per hardware manual FRU listing for 4GB (page 85) :
13 DDRIII 1333 4GB, SAM M471B5273CH0-CH9 DDR3 1333 4GB Part number : 11011934
13 DDRIII 1333 4GB, HMT351S6AFR8C-H9 N0 ((Rev Orion /2Gb/54nm)) Part number : 11011513
13 DDRIII 1333 4GB, ELP EBJ41UF8BAS0-DJ-F DDR3 1066 4GB Part number : 11011867
Do you have the same specification as indicated above?
Would that be the same issue when it is on the lower slot 0 ?
Note: If only one DIMM is used on the computer you are servicing, the card must be installed in SLOT-0 ( a : lower slot), but not in SLOT-1 ( b : upper slot) (page 41).
Update us how it goes.

thank you for replying to my problem!
Yes, I have recommended RAM (DDR3 PC-10600 (1333MHz)) and its compatible with my motherboard.
I plugged this new one card in slot 0 and in slot 1 and nothing happens.

Hi hyperxd ,
Would the original RAM have a bandwidth of 10666 instead of 10600 ?
Depending on the manufacturer of RAM ,BIOS and board compatibility, as it may be the ones causing the issue specially if the new 4GB was tested working on another laptop.
Similar discussions here where user have a 10666 working ok with the same model.
Have us posted with the updates too.
