There is a good chance that the error you received was because that one RAM stick went bad. You can buy one more stick of 256MB of RAM and insert it into the empty slot.

Hi whisky_zulu,

I see that you have basically done everything possible on the machine still to no avail.

Basing from what you've done still the issue is the same it shows that the motherboard on the machine needs to be replaced.

no beep codes as you mentioned indicates that the motherboard does not respond at all there maybe power but you also mentioned that it also shuts down once turned on for a couple of seconds.

replacing the systems motherboard will be the only solution to this issue.

I hope that this makes it clear regarding your query.

Have a nice day,

If the notebook you are servicing has an unknown password,
follow these steps to clear the password. These steps also
clear CMOS.
1. Prepare the notebook for disassembly (Section 5.3).

Have sent it in for hard drive problems with BIOS and blue screen. HP update BIOS and sent back still same problem so sent back and they replaced hard drive. Now same problem and technician said mother...

1. A "blue-screen" can be caused either by faulty hardware (such as a bad stick of RAM) or by a screw-up within the installed copy of Microsoft Windows.

2. Updating the BIOS will not "cure" any hardware problem, but it may "tune-up" the motherboard's interaction with some other component, e.g., a network-card or a video-card.

3. Updating the BIOS will not prevent any "screw-up" within Windows.

4. Replacing the motherboard, while keeping the same RAM, will not cure any "bad RAM" problems.

5. Replacing the keyboard or mouse or speakers will not "cure" the problem.

6. If they inspected the motherboard, and they found liquid damage (spill of some soft-drink or beer or cream/sugar coffee) that is causing short-circuits on the motherboard, then it depends whether you purchased an "all-perils" warranty that covers user-induced damage (dropped computer, liquid spills) or whether you have a "standard" warranty (to replace a disk-drive that dies).

7. If they replaced the hard-drive, then they (or you) probably installed a "fresh" copy of Windows, which tends to rule-out any "software" problems that would cause a blue-screen.

My suggestion: borrow a Windows 7 DVD from a friend, and boot from it. One of the start-up options is to run a "RAM-test", to extensively test the RAM for faults.

Dear Sanjaykpaul.

This has to be checked with existing ram in your note book, The same type may be added to make it 512 MB or can be replaced with a new with Higher capacity. The speed should match with existing Ram Chip Module.
