Assembled a barebone ebot with the 2ghz chip from maplin, add 1 gb memory, an old 3gb hdd, a ps2 keyboard and a screen. doesnt see the keyboard consistently, holding the tab key down while pressing the reset button _sometimes_ brings me to the testing memory point, very rarely the del key and reset button have taken me to the bios setup screen but direction keys dont register. tried 2 ps2 keyboard and 1 usb kbd to no avail.
so i took this one back to maplin who had a spare one to swapover. repeat experience, just no connection. then the video fried/broke up and the reset button stoped registering.
am I jinxed ?

The maximum amount of RAM that that motherboard can hold is 4GB. You should also know that 32-bit WIndows Operating Systems will only use 3GB of RAM though. 64-bit Operating Systems will recognize and utilize more.
It is struggling to install a driver. reformat the hard drive when you have the option (Fat 32 or NTFS which is better) and try again. If it still fails then remove usb devices except for keyboard and mouse if they are usb. Remove and add on cards and install on a basic system. If the install still fails then you have a corrupt hard drive or corrupt install disk. you can start the computer using the install disk and selecting recovery console to give you an dos screen. At the prompt type chkdsk and let it look for errors.
200 watt max. 19v DC power brick with a 4 pin plug, with two positive and two ground pins. The PSU is unique to the E-bot. I have not been able to find an exact match anywhere. Foxconn no longer sells the PSUs and will not help with tech support in any way. The PSU was originally produced by Fortron Source Power (FSP). When mine went bad, I had to buy a similar looking unit (but with only a 150 watt max rating), then I had to rewire the output cord, because the 4 pin plug had the positives and negatives switched around.
If you need a new power brick for the Ebot, I seriously hope you have the old original unit still. If you do, you can then simply buy any 19V laptop power brick that has acceptable power output (at least 120 watt) and then replace the power output cord with the original one from the Ebot's power supply (some soldering required). It's really the only way to replace the unit.
Your laptop can have up to 1 GB of memory. You should have two slots and you can install 512 MB per slot. Your laptop is using 200 Pin DDR PC2100 266 MHz CL 2.5 SODIMM. You can also install PC3200, but your laptop will clock it down to 266 MHz.
press F2 or Del on boot up and see if your drive is listed, if not you may have set the jumper incorrectly on the back of the cdrom drive, if it is shared with the same cable as your hard drive then it should be set as slave, if it's on it's own cable from the motherboard then set it as master.
Lastly when in the bios you need to set the cdrom drive as first boot device and when the screen pops up you press enter to boot from cd, so as to install the operating system, if you don't then the pc will look at your hardrive to boot from, finding nothing there.
