I recently bought a ASUS U36SD-RX002V laptop and installed a ssd-disk: Samsung SSD 470 Series 128GB. After that the laptop worked fine. Then I installed 2x4GB Corsair Value DDR3 SO-DIMM 1333MHz. When I tried to turn on the laptop i only got a black screen. The power led is on, but i can´t hear any sound from the laptop.

I have tried to replace the original memory with the same result. I have also tried to take out the CMOS battery and replacing it with the same result.

This is the hardware list:
Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-2410M 2,3 GHz
Chipset: Mobile Intel® HM65 Express Chipset
Memory type: SODIMM DDR3 1333MHz
Original memory: 4GB
Maximum memory: 8 GB
Memory sockets: 2
Graphics: NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 520M (N12P-GV)
Dedicated graphics memory: 1GB DDR3

Does anybody know what the problem is and how to fix it?

Problems with 4GB RAM sticks are not uncommon.
Try booting with one stick at a time.
Your original 4GB of RAM was more than sufficient as no games and few apps can utilize more than 3GB of RAM.

I tried to boot with the original RAM stick in the RAM socket that was empty when i bought the laptop. This worked :D

Thank you for the help:)

Do you think this means that the other ram socket is defect? And that if I want to upgrade to 8 GB ram i need to buy a new motherboard?

Try one original RAM stick in each slot. That will tell you if the Mobo slot is a problem.
Why do you want 8GB of RAM? No games and few apps can utilize more than 3GB of RAM.

I got the same problem (asus u36sd), I tried to put in 4 gig extra, but the computer did not recognize it, so I took it out. But now my screen is just black when I try to boot the notebook. I have tried the original ram in both slots, over and over again..Nothing seems to work. Asus support cant help me. What should I do?

Thanks

It doesn't appear the ram is in the slot to me.
Push down and in when installing.
I am pushing down and in, and I hear a "click", its sitting hard and thight...I tried both slots.

I agree its looks like the ram is not in the slot, but I cant push it more inn...

another pic from the other slot

It's not fully in the slot, usually the alignment lug fills the notch in the ram stick.

Here's an image from a Dell I have apart at monent.
