I have a Dell Inspiron 3537 and I bought a memory upgrade (G.SKILL 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 PC3-12800).
When I install both 8gb sticks the laptop wont boot, and it makes a repeating sound through what seems like an internal speaker.
Any idea why the sticks will not work...the specs for the memory upgrade seems to be alright, even though I notice that when I removed the original memory sticks it says on the PC board that it supports ddr3L.
Is ddr3L backwards compatible with ddr3?
Sometimes, DDR3L will work in place of DDR3 -- depends on the board design. The reverse is not true though - you cannot use DDR3 in place of DDR3L. If you're getting a 2- or 4-beep pattern, the memory is not compatible with your system.
just for the heck of it, go to CRUCIAL and run their memory scan and make sure the new memory jives withe new. sounds like you have the correct memory. does windows and bios see the memory?
