Hi, One of my friends gave a a 256MB PC133 Toshiba PA3086U Memory to upgrade the wifes Dell Lattitude Lappy, after inserting the memory the laptop will not power up. The friend swears the memory works fine, is Toshiba memory only suitable for Toshiba Laptops or has the memory packed up. Any help would be much apprecieted

It could just be incompatible, is it installed correctly? Does the computer startup if you remove the memory again?
