Ram Memory problem.

Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

Lay a soft static free cloth on the TABLE you're working on.
Turn the laptop over, lay it on the cloth.
Open the Memory Compartment.
Remove all ram memory modules. ('Stick')

Clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom, of the ram memory modules, with a pencil eraser.
Handle the ram memory module by the BODY.

The Body is everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins.
The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1GB_DDR2_SO-DIMM.png

If you are using an eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser, refrain from letting the metal band of the pencil, touch the gold plated contact pins.

Rub up, and down, and across on the contact pins, BOTH sides.
Doesn't take much pressure, nor rubbing.

Contact pins will clean up, but they may not be bright, and shiny.
It's OK. I assure you that you have cleaned them. Doesn't take much 'corrosion' to make a bad contact surface.

Use air to remove the eraser dust. If you have a can of compressed air for computers, use it. If not air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Reinstall.

When I swiched on the computer, the coputer did not work, no beeps, no bios informations appeared, so my question is whatis the reason of that ?, and what is the solution ?.


The RAM modules may need reseating. After reseating and your laptop still does not boot up then the RAM maybe faulty. Remove the RAM modules and take them to your friendlt computer shop and get them to test the RAM.

it beep three time not go no where


Memory Failure.

1) Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open.

Observe Anti-Static Precautions

Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Computer UNPLUGGED from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case to relieve your body of Static, BEFORE reaching inside the computer.

If you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.


2) Remove the Ram Memory module/s. (Module = Stick)
You can lay the computer on it's side for easier access to the ram memory module/s.

Clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the Ram Memory module/s.
Use a pencil eraser.
If you are Not using a solid eraser, and the eraser on the end of a pencil, refrain from letting the metal band touch the contact pins.

The Intel motherboards that use the Intel 845GV chipset use DDR Sdram ram memory,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

(You can click on the photo to enlarge. You can enlarge twice)

DDR Sdram ram memory has 184 contact pins. 92 on each side.

Clean each one of the contact pins with the eraser. Both sides of the ram memory module.
Doesn't take long.

Rub the eraser up and down on each contact pin. Doesn't take very much pressure.
After you have cleaned the contact pins it may seem as though you have done nothing at all.
I assure you that you have.

The contact pins do not have to be shiny.
Corrosion develops on the gold plated contact pins, and it doesn't take very much corrosion to make a bad contact.

After you have finished use air to remove the eraser dust.
If a can of compressed air for computers is available, use it.
Otherwise air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

(If a can of compressed air is available, also use it to clean out the ram memory slots)

Computer still unplugged from power, press the Power On button in, and hold it in for a count of Five seconds. Let go of the Power On button.
Do this same procedure Two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.


Once done reinstall the ram memory module/s.
Close the computer case.
Plug the computer into power.
WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on.

When memory check starts, get a + then hangs


Computer unplugged from power, computer case open, observe Anti-Static precautions, then remove the ram memory module/s.

(Slang for ram memory module, is ram memory 'stick')

Use a pencil eraser, and clean the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom of the ram memory module.

Just rub the eraser on the contact pins.
(If the eraser on the end of the pencil is attached by a metal sleeve, refrain from letting the metal sleeve touch the contact pin/s)

When handling the ram memory module, refrain from touching the contact pins on the bottom.
You can handle the ram memory module anywhere else, as the body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Lay the module on a wood table, or other non-Static surface when cleaning.
Example of a DDR Sdram ram memory module as used in a Pavilion 523n,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

Use air to remove the eraser dust.
(You can use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth is sufficient)

Reinsert the ram memory module/s. Close the computer case, plug back into power. Wait 1 minute, turn the computer on.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Working on a table, computer unplugged from power, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case (Unpainted surface) to relieve your body of Static.

Should you get up, and walk away in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return Touch the metal frame again ]

Opening your computer case.
Looking at the Back of the computer, there are two screws on the far right edge.
One above, one below.

Remove the two screws, slide the side panel back about 1 inch, tilt the side cover top to the outside, remove the side cover. (If memory serves)
