Question about Acer Aspire 5050-3242 Notebook
This is just a start, report back with results and we can continue.
Unplug the battery and the power adapter for 30 minutes .. After this, plugin the power adapter and try starting up.
What happens? If there is no change, there is a cover in the bottom which you can open, two screws
Find the memory slot, this is just a random picture I got on my hands on, the memory may be under a diffrent slot
UNPLUG and REMOVE BATTERY
Note that we are only using the power adapter and no battery during this process, keep the battery removed untill you have closed the ram cover and the laptop is working again.
Gently snap the ram out of its sockets note the holders on the module sides. Take both out, turn the laptop over and try starting up again, Remember Always when removing components from a computer UNPLUG and REMOVE BATTERY
With no memory the laptop should Beep a few times, please count the beeps short and long for me, then reinsert the other ram module, make sure its well seated and theres noting on the table no screws or anything that would damage the computer, turn it over again, you can keep the cover open, thats why I said make sure theres no screws or anything under it. Try starting up, what happens? beeps? IT should start up. Note that we are only using the power adapter and no battery during this process
update me on the results.
