Pavilion a1140a RAM upgrade


I bought a generic stick of 1GB DDR DDR400 RAM for my Pavilion a1140a. The RAM is the correct type for the machine.

When I install it, the machine does not boot...the screen just stays black.

I've tried the stick in another IBM machine and it works fine.

Why won't the RAM work in the HP?
