Adding a DIMM makes the laptop not power up

2015-06-24, 19:44 PM

Howdy all

 

I have a T450s, I just removed the HDD and replaced it with an SSD, works fine.

 

Now I want to add 8 GB to up the RAM to the max 12 GB, I bought this from amazon...

 

Crucial 8GB Single DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204-Pin 1.35V/1.5V Notebook Memory CT102464BF160B

 

I believe it's compatible, I chatted with a girl at crucial, and she said it was. BUT... when I add it, the laptop acts dead, pressing the power button does nothing, no sound, no lights, nothing at all.

 

Does anyone has any ideas or advise to help?

 

 

Solved! See the solution

Nevermind. I figured it out. If you plug in the power chord before powering on, it works. Battery alone it wouldn't. Now it boots normally.
