hi, the most likely probls is that it does not detect the ram ,maybe it only sees up to 4gig per slot for a total of 8 ,did you check your manual for the correct ram layout ,and its also possibe it will not take 1066 speed ram

It doesn't say anything about the layout, only that is supports up to 1,2,4, or 8GB at 1066MHZ

I tried just the one default RAM stick and it worked :/ so i dont think both slots have to be full :/

laptop and desktops that have a max of 8gig ,have to have it the forum of 2x4 gig to work .i can find a manual online of the laptop so i have to make my suggest based on my experience with laptops and ram

Caperjack makes a good point. The use of a single 8GB SIMM would imply that the laptop supports 16GB, but you say it only supports up to 8GB. So, using 2x4GB SIMMs would seem to be a valid point.
