I've been to two forums where 8GB was installed and working on this laptop. I'd like to see how this turn out, because I was going to upgrade my sigrig with 8GB.

Did you do a bios update to the latest bios.

Robert, please be informed that Gateway does not recommend changing or upgrading any hardware configuration. You have the option of upgrading or changing your hardware configuration at your own discretion.

You may upgrade the memory up to 8 GB DDR3 800 MHz/1066 MHz memory (when 4 GB memory module available).


That message if from the gateway customer support after i told them my serial and model number and what i was trying to do.so now i KNOW it supports it just have to figure out why it's not working.the first set of sticks i got i rma'ed because i thoguht they may be bad...well i have a new set now and still cannot get this to work,so i'm sure it's the computer,just have to figure out what...as i said before i had elpida 4 gigs 2x2 pc3-8500 ddr3 1066 and bought corsair 8 gigs 2x4 pc3-8500 ddr3 1066....any help appreciated greatly
