Should have worked, but didn't for a Dell Inspiron i3542

Summary: Doesn't work on Dell Inspiron i3542-1666BK (which comes with only 4GB). The memory was a identical match to specifications from Dell's website. Ordered from Amazon and when it was installed I received the "two-beeps" upon a power cycle that indicates memory not present. Put in the OEM chip it works, a couple more attempts to install the memory and then 15 minutes with Dell Tech Support basically led to either the memory stick was bad or it not accepted by the laptop.
1.5v instead of 1.35v ram, not supported by all laptops.

Summary: &&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&The ram's voltage is rated @ 1.5v, and only some laptop supports 1.5v ram voltage. It's not mentioned anywhere in item description. Tested works with: Lenovo S400 laptop (core i3), Apple Macbook Pro (Late 2012 model, up to 16gb) DOES NOT WORK WITH: Lenovo U430 ultrabook (core i7) So make sure your laptop can support 1.5v ram voltage before buying this, or just buy a 1.35v rated ram instead to avoid trouble once and for all.
Summary: targetas this ram works perfectly on my Compaq Presario CQ56 has never given me faults and I am satisfied with the product acquired, remember that you must update your pc to 64 bits to take the 16gb of ram
Summary: I put these in my Dell M6700. Easy to installed and works. Have had it running for around 18 months and no memory issues to date. I left the 8GB I had in the system in and added these so running 24GB RAM now.
Summary: I simply popped open the back of my laptop and removed my older memory and applied the little panel back turned on the computer and i was rolling. Very simple and a great way to speed up your computer. I even bought another to double up on the speed after this one took so easy.
