x240 will not boot when upgraded to 8g

the laptop currently has a 4g stick.  when an 8g stick in installed the laptop does not boot, no Lenovo splash screen.  the RAM works in another pc.  upgrading the BIOS to the latest version did not help.

Re: x240 will not boot when upgraded to 8g

It is safest to use sticks that have Lenovo FRU stickers on them.  Most are compatible, but some are not.  You need DDR3L (low-voltage) RAM.  1.5V sticks will not work.  Also avoid those with the name "value" in them.
