X240 doesn't boot with Kingston 8GB PC3L - 12800SE 11 12 D1

2015-01-31, 20:22 PM

Is there any reason why my X240 doesn't boot with a brand new Kingston 8GB PC3L - 12800SE 11 12 D1?

(http://www.kingston.com/dataSheets/KVR16LSE11_8.pdf)

Replacing it again with original Samsung 4GB PC3L 12800S 11 11 F3 its working without any trouble.

 

Moderator note: fixed broken link.

As I already wrote in the German ThinkPad forum, you need non-ECC RAM, but the RAM you used is ECC RAM.
