Hmm..that suggests that the memory module is either mis installed or missing..that would be odd..usually located under the laptop behind a small panel with a small screw holding it down..

I am thinking of adding memory to my Compaq Presario SR111ONX. I was looking for a schematic of the motherboard or a diagram showing the memory slots and how to add it.

Two long slots with tabs on each end... the hold the memory sticks vertical to the board.

Use your finger to gently move the tab away from the memory stick on both sides... after each tab has been moved away pull up firmly on the memory stick...note the position of the slot(s) on the side of the stick that goes into the slot. insert the replacement memory stick in the slot lining it up carefully and push down ... the tabs should go back into place on their own if the memory is seated properly.

I tried to change the ram on my asus laptop and turned it on and screen does not show anything but laptop turns on but black screen help me?

Good day.
Memory modules are sensitive. You must take a lot of care when handling memory modules.
The first question is why did you change the ram? Nevertheless, if the one you replace is certified in good condition, then the problem lies in the insertion of the new ram. First to note is the use of correct memory module type and speed. Use of incorrect type/speed may result to errors. Secondly,clean the module's contact points using an eraser. See to it that you align the module's cut (located in the contact point) to the proper slot in the memory module's slot. Do not force to insert the memory module if it is not in the proper slot, it will break the board and/or the memory module. You can hear a slight click sound or a firm position signifying you have correctly inserted the memory module. Power on test your laptop. If you have more than one modules, you may try one another to isolate defective one.
Feel free to post your problems here at Fixya.
Good luck.

Beeping sound at boot up, screen showing auto save and not booting up

remove the memory chip, clean it, insert it back in the slot again. "be carefull" dont wrongly place the memory chip else it will burn, there r two clips on each end of the slot, and in the middle a separator. hope this will help. if u have a graphic card in it remove it, clean it, and insert it back on the slot. if doesnt work then replace the memory chip or graphic card. now if u have two or three memory chips in the slot, then test one by one. remove all, then place one, then turn on pc see if the display come, by this way u will know if the chips are good or not, then try the others.

Dell vostro 400 2 beeps in bios post test


The cause of beeping is the memory problem. maybe the memory stick is not inserted correctly. If your memory stick will not correctly inserted it will damaged the memory slot. Try to use the other slot, if the same thing happen. You memory slot will be damaged you need to bring you motherboard to the computer repair center. Ask first how you will pay, if the labor cost is high. its better to buy a brand new motherboard.

I would like to know where i insert my memory card from my camera into my laptop

First of all, not all laptops have the ability to read memory cards. Look all around your laptop (sides, front, back) for something similar to this (the slots, not the device itself):

Obviously, if you don't see any slots like these, your laptop does not support media cards. However, you can purchase a USB media card reader (such as the one above) for usually $15-20.

Hope this helps - please be sure to rate my answer :)
