Problem with over 1GB of RAM: HP DV9000CTO and blank screen after mach_kernel loaded

Hello guys,

my HP DV9000CTO laptop is behaving rather odd when I try to install over 1GB of RAM. It's perfectly Ok in BIOS (it does see it and I can run memtest fine) but after loading mach_kernel screen goes blank and seems like computer hangs. I've tried every combination of 667Mhz Ram: 2GB sticks (1 and a pair), pair of 1GB sticks, 1Gb + 512MB -- nothing that is over 1GB total will boot.

I have a 945 chipset and 256MB GeForce 7600 Go (CI/QE with Nvenabler Go). Does anyone can have an educated guess what could be the problem? Or at least how to perfectly trace it?
