i mounted in an empty slot and the system hangs on boot. three beeps, pause, three beeps, a single beep.
hardware maintenance manual says faulty ram.
the seller says my laptop won't recognize it because it's cl11 and my system only works with cl9, but i think it's BS.
Could anyone confirm it's faulty ram?

Or if it's easier, buy a couple of sticks of new matched RAM to replace what you have in there, making sure the new RAM is compatible with the machine of course.
And agree - use name brand RAM.
Hope this helps.
Did you test it with no other modules installed? Tried it in both slots?
I wouldn't consider Silicon Power to be "no-name"; it's a Taiwan company that's been making flash memory for 10 years.

People, don't buy things from Naples, Italy.
