Acer Aspire 5742Z-4512 rebooting on new 8GB RAM

My uncle is using Acer Aspire 5742Z-4512. It came with 2GB RAM. I want to upgrade the ram to make it work more better. So I bought a 8GB single ram stick and added it in the system. After that the system is continuously restarting on windows screen. I am not able to do anything. The system turns on well and then at halt at windows logo. Then it restarts on its own. While it work with single 2GB ram stick.

Before buying have you checked the ram compatibility. You have to check the specification here where you can get more detail about the ram. Like what is the max size this laptop support and how much ram mhz can you use here. You might have bought a incompatible one. Many seller has a replacement policy. You can return it if it is not working and order another one. But check the system specs before buying.

That is right. You have to check the ram specs first. I do not think this laptop is capable of running 8GB ram. It is a Pentium T4500 system. And it comes with 4GB RAM. What you can do is simply return the ram that you bought and get a 2GB more and then try that. I am sure that will be enough to boost up the system output. Try to remove un-necessary programs from your system to boot the performance.
