I have an old Dell M4800 i7 4810mq 2.8. It came with two x 8g pc3l 11-13-fp 12800s 1600mhz ram cards.

The system says it can have a total of 32g of r a m and they must be LV 1.35 cards.

I purchased per spec 2 x 8g pc3l 12800s 1600mhz but they do not work. The system doesn't boot at all with the new slits filled. They are brand new Samsung 16GB DDR3L 2 x 8GB 1600MHz PC3L 12800 SODIMM 204pin Laptop Memory RAM.

They have 11-11-f3 instead of the original 11-13-fp. Is that the issue?

They are all LV 1.35 cards. When I take out the new cards the system boots with the old, but if I change them to the new samsung cards the system again doesn't boot up.

Please help. Need more ram for vid editing.

Thanks in advance good people.

Unfortunately, some laptops can just be buggy with certain kits of memory.

Does removing all the old memory, and only populating with a single module (1x8GB) of the new Samsung RAM work?

The mixed timings could be problematic, but I'd expect the system to boot with only the new kit installed.

could be OEM ram issue. Some OEM program their RAM and motherboard so a perfectably compatible RAM only works on their systems and vice versa
