Let us know how the computer is running with the replacement RAM.
thought so...I guess I'll have to help him get the replacement.
in the meantime, his laptop's now using the old RAM...until now he said there's no further BSOD occurring

another thing...the old RAM is PC12800 while the new RAM is PC10666.
the spec of his laptop says it support both. so, does it relate in any way to the BSOD or it's just simply messed up RAM?

For Non-supported RAM, the problem should be bigger. As the laptop supports the both, it appears to be a corrupted RAM only.

And if it is working good with the original RAM, let it work

Then faulty RAM it is...

Thanks very much for your help, Arc not only this helping me solving the problem, I also get new things about troubleshooting

I hope I can contribute something to the community also, although maybe I have much to catch on....
