    I tried to upgrade my Toshiba L500-22R Memory to 8GB. I bought 2x4GB Kingston PC3L 12800 SODIMM and the OS doesn't start, I did a memory check and it fails too. I tried with a Samsung 4GB 12800 and it fails too.

    The original memory works good.

    Any ideas?

    Obviously you bought not compatible modules.
    The PC3 12800 1600Mhz isnít listed as an supported module.

    The Satellite L500 can be upgraded up to 8GB RAM and you can use two 4GB DDR3 1066MHz (PC3-8500) SO-DIMM modules.
