Is that even possible? Isn't ValueRAM standardized so that it works on generic computers as long as the right one is put in?
Is it likely she needed DDR2 instead of DDR?
It's possible it's bad ram, have her run Memtest 86+ to check.
Value Ram being incompatible is untrue, it just doesn't work like that. It'll work in any laptop unless the laptop itself only works with very specific memory modules like some DELL laptops need.
DDR2 is shaped and designed totally different than DDR. DDR2 would never have fit in the laptop in the first place, the slot is a different shape, so this isn't the problem either.
