Hello!
I've got an old laptop that I wanted update with more ram, but there's no display with the new ram ?

My laptop is a 2011 Samsung series 7 700z:

And I bought this 8GB ram: https://webshop.harddisk.no/corsair-8gb-module-ddr3-1600mhz/cat-p/c/p4535671

When I changed it, the laptop did not start. I could hear the fan start, but the screen was black.

Do you know why this was not a match?

I found this page, where Crucial has a couple of ram it says fit, but why? Whats the difference between this and the one i bought?
https://www.crucial.com/compatible-upgrade-for/samsung/700z3a-700z4a-700z5a-700z5b#memory

The only difference I can find is 1,5 vs 1,35v, but is that the problem? Also, I think the pc is compatible with 8gb ram 😅

Hope you can help me 😄
