    How much ram do you have installed?

    Most likely, your error has to do with how much free ram your system had at that moment.

    Reboot, and try to install the printer again.

    Post back your results.

Easiest thing to do would be to buy a RAM upgrade from Dell.com; you can look it up under the Service Tag for your machine if you haven't created an account yet.

If you already have a Dell.com account, after you login to Your Account, look for "My Systems and Peripherals" on the right, and there should be a link called "Find More Parts for Your [Computer Description]" and then you can select the "Memory" category.

512 MB should be enough, and the Dell brand memory at that size goes for under $20.

Upgrade BIOS to see if it will resolve hardware issue with new stick of RAM


Hi Szusza,

The new RAM module you purchased may be faulty, it is definitely possible that either due to a fault of the new RAM or on the slot you are trying to install it to cause the computer to not fully boot.

Have you tried to boot the computer with the new module only?
If not please try this:

Replace the original RAM module with the new one (make sure you insert the new RAM in the same slot you took the old one out)
If the PC boots you know the new RAM is fine.
If this does not work I would suggest getting your new RAM tested.

If it does work, put the original RAM back in the computer (in a new slot) if it does not boot after that then, there is possibly a problem with the RAM slot on the motherboard.

I CAN'T INSTALL MY PRINTER HP DESKJET D2400


Hi mpc 124!
You didn't gave enough details on your problem so I will have to do a rundown of some of the details. Pleas bear with me....
In installing your printer, you will need the cd driver. The cd driver comes along with the printer. Once you plug the printer into the computer, it will automatically detects the printer. However, you will not be able to use it immediately until you load the driver.
If you don't have the cd driver, here's the link: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DriverDownload.jsp?prodNameId=3317536&lang=en&cc=us&taskId=135&prodTypeId=18972&prodSeriesId=2510721
If you have the cd driver, all you need to do is load it in your cd/dvd reader and follow the on-screen instructions.
Hope I have been of help.

My computer will not start after the toshiba screen comes up. The screen is black with a blinking cursor


That might be caused with a lot things maybe RAM, maybe a corrupted OS, or might be a loose connection of the hard drive, maybe a virus or a malware. If you can go safe mode( by pressing f8 during boot up)run your anti virus from there if that didn't work try your system restore. If that didn't work try removing your RAM and replace it (you must have a back up RAM at least for testing purposes). If that didn't work also try removing your Hard Drive. Remove it carefully then carefully re install it.(Remember to pull out the battery and the charger before removing your Hard Drive and RAM for safety precautions) If neither of the above worked, then clean installing your OS is your last option.
Good Day.

The first possibility is your settings for your memory are incorrect. Boot into your BIOS and change the settings to the correct timings etc. (would be easier if I knew your exact motherboard and ram (memory) information).
Or it could be the ram is defective. Return it and get a new one.
If you want to be really sure your ram is defective. Go to this site and download and install to any of the available options then boot from it. Run a test on your memory (WARNING takes a looong time). Also, did you take the old one out?

Hope this helps and good luck.

Do the computer have eny problems


Sorry mate all computers can develope problems either by downloading or installing too much software. Viruses and infections can be a night mare and hackers can steel valuable information.A hard drive doesnt really lose the information when you delete it it can be brought back by the right person it sold on. Then theres internal problems theres a lot of technical software inside a system always take care of what you have get a good security software and youll be safe. For a new computer to develope a fault is exstreamly rare and they all have a system called backup. so if you lose a system just go to backup and your system you lost will be recovered.

You have an hardware compatibility issue between some of your devices (maybe the printer or RAM)and windows, this cause the fatal exception in question. This is usually not a big problem, but is difficult to troubleshoot it from here in few lines. A way to fix it is doing a fresh Windows installation after you do a backup of all your stuff. If you have some spare RAM you can also try replacing them to test it. Faulty RAM causes similar phoenomena.
