Installing new RAM in HP Pavillion 2000 (or any laptop) leads to blue screen on boot

Are you sure the RAM you have installed is good?

Assuming yes, the obvious problem is your BIOS. If you are opposed to updating your BIOS you can always try this simple solution:

Boot up the machine.

Load the BIOS settings.

Press the key for Save and Exit.

Even though your BIOS might have detected your RAM it may have just needed a little push to get going.

Good luck!

Edit: So my initial assumption was right. I tried replacing the RAM and this issue just went away. It was a defective stick.

This was a memory issue on my server. It seems to be resolved.
