Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
Go to Crucial Memory's site and run the "scan my system" option. It will tell you the exact amount of memory your computer supports, how many slots are empty and what is in the occupied slots. The link is www.crucial.com
There is a hardware issue... Could be ram if so you can fix yourself.
Take out one piece of ram at the bottom of the unit... If the problem still occurs then take out that ram and put the other piece back in and see where that leads you
Hi there. I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick. If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.
u can reset ur OS again it will refresh ur performance and then ur speed will improve otherwise
2 things that affect the speed of system
Hard Disk make a big difference in Bootup time and program working
Ram is also a factor if u want to install RAM u can buy 2 chips of 512 MB each becoz u know in these laptops they work good if they have RAM on both Slots thats why prev there were 256 mb each on both so get 512 each on both but remember specs shud meet ur old Ram specs or atleast compatible if higher specs than urs u can ask me more on this !
The only new hardware that you can install on that laptop is ram, and with a maximum of 80mb EDO you might be better off loading up a version of Linux that does not require a lot of memory. XP would be like molassas in January in Alaska. Vista would just not even get past the opening install screen.
