Just put 2x 4GB SODIMM's into a Dell Latitude E5510 and it won't boot up. Starts thing to load windows then BSOD with RAM related errors like BAD_POOL_HEADER and PFN_LIST_CORRUPT.

Only starts up with the previous 2x 1GB modules, even though the BIOS recognises the new memory.

Can't google a compatibility list for the E5510 but can't see why it shouldn't work, any ideas?

Kingston - KVR13S9S8/4  4GB PC3-10600 CL9 which should work fine, any ideas or just return the RM to vendor?

Try each stick of ram one at a time. Try each new stick with an old stick.  See if there is a BIOS update. Process of elimination really.

Some OEM's can be very picky. HP is the same, if it is not on the list, it doesn't work. Follow lxsw20's advise above or try send an email to dell support. Otherwise try online RAM providers like the crucial ram scanner.

Try Vultr using this link and get us both some credit:

Cheers for that, I'll get some "proper" RAM and try again.

I was going to use it in a QNAS but scored a free Acer which is doing me fine for now.
