Kingston HyperX Impact 16GB (2 x 8GB) not working on T430s

Good day!

 

Bought 16Gb DDR3L-2133 memory kit (Kingston HyperX Impact 16GB (2 x 8GB) HX321LS11IB2K2/16)

for my T430s laptop (i7-3520M, HD4000).

Not works at all, laptop simply not boots up.

 

Two 2133 modules -> no boot

Single 2133 modules -> no boot

any module of 2133 kit and standard 4 or 8gb 1600 module - > boots ok, but of cause memory works as 1600mhz

 

Latest BIOS 2.73 (also tried downgrading to 2.69)

 

Any ideas/suggestions?

I have seen several reports of compatibility problems with Kingston memory.  I always suggest that whenever they buy non-Lenovo-branded memory, they confirm a seller's return policy.

Sure, I can return it with no problems.

But i wanted a little boost to my laptop, so i got this memory Smiley Happy

 

But as i see,

- several people reported of success with this kit

- only available on market is Kingston and Geil (which is unreasonably expensive)
