Yoga 500 14ISK 8gb ram not working

I bought Kingston (HX316LS9IB/8)  8gb ddr3 ram,

but it doesnt work on 500-14isk, the laptop is not booting

I think the problem is the bios only supports CL11 rams.

If it is, why bios doesn't support CL9 rams. Can you put new update bios for it ?

 

Thanks.

A lower number of wait states won't make it incompatible.  I would try reseating it.  Also, after a configuration change, it may take longer for the first POST - maybe up to a minute.  Sometimes, particular brands and models have compatibility problems.  If it still doesn't work, I suggest returning it for a different brand.  My choice is always Corsair Vengeance.  I've never had compatibility issues.  Other people may have other favorites.

I tried that you said again waited more than 5 minutes. Bios does not reconigze the ram, always repeats booting every one minute and it does not open. Lenovo should support these rams. Most of users pay these kind of parts. Right now, I can not give the ram back to seller. Also I strongly think that issue is about cl timings. At least Lenovo can put permissions to change these configurations into Bios. Please consider this.

 

Thanks.

I also ran into this problem, bought a ram with cl9 timings, now I have to sell it.

I also search for timing settings in bios. in the yoga bios I can't do anything at all, just to change the fn and F keys function.
