Cant get any power to run through my laptop

Tyr this:
Gently remove and clean (with a pencil eraser) and reinstall your memory, then try again.

For you non-techies, it is very easy to hose a perfectly good laptop by NOT fully releasing the side-latches (some metal, some plastic) BEFORE gently lifting the RAM up 1/4", away from the pin/contact seating area, and OUT of the sockets. Actually, if you do it right and do not physically touch the face, sides or corners of the RAM when you use your Left and Right thumbnails to 'tease' the latches away from the sides of the RAM, it will POP out all by itself. smile1.gif
Now... putting new RAM in is REALLY easy and does not require any force or pressure at all. Look at the socket and the RAM and orient your RAM so the slot in it (the RAM) and the raised portion of plastic in the contact seating area line up. If it is OBVIOUSLY not, flip the RAM over and check again. If it still will not, or can not line up... it is the wrong type RAM for your machine. Take it back. Do not try to 'make it fit' ;-)

Once you have RAM oriented so it WILL slot in, take the RAM between your index fingers and thumbs so the contacts are facing AWAY from you and hold firmly by putting the tips of your fingers into the holes on the sides of the RAM, ease the RAM into the socket and seating area, wiggle a bit side to side and seat in snugly, then maintaining the hold with your 2 Thumbs, tease the latches away from the socket edges with your fingernails (under the edges of the new RAM) so they both clear the sides of that RAM, then gently press down a bit further with your thumbs until the RAM face is below the latches and finally release the latches making sure BOTH are now above the RAM face. Done.

Don't FORCE... EVER ;-)
Hope this helps!
