I have a G750-JH with 24GB Ram. I installed a Kingston 8GB 1.35v L version stick.
The laptop refused to boot up. I removed the new RAM and then the laptop went to
a repair screen and nothing happened. I used F2 on a reboot to get to bios and
now I have a normal boot up and Win 8.1 screen.
Can anybody advise me what I did wrong?

make sure that you bought the correct RAM, like G750JX, the G750JH supports DDR3L up to 1600Mhz...

I have found several laptops don't like Kingston RAM. Try to get Crucial DDR3 1.35v 1600mhz modules as they definitely do work.

Another vote for other memory, Kingston has been problematic for me too, especially getting along with non-Kingston memory.

Samsung, Hynix, Hyundai, G.skill, Patriot, Corsair, Crucial, are all brands that have worked well for me.

It is best if you can find the exact same memory already installed, in my JH it is the Hynix/Hyundai HMT41GS6AFR8A-PB

The Hynix 8GB SODIMM HMT41GS6AFR8A-PB I ordered to add to the 3 that came with the JH arrived today, and it is the same part number that Asus used for the 3 that came with the JH:

Original SO-DIMM (slot 2, under back panel)
32608

New SO-DIMM (slot 1, under back panel)
32609

Works fine, and shows up like the rest:

32610

Not bad for ~$110 shipped :)
