    Hey skone, thanks for trying. Unfortunately, I can't move the meter and it's fixed on 800 x 600. Also, my computer doesn't allow me to go on standby and I read that these two issues are related. Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Right click the desktop and hit properties, then hit the settings tab and change your resolution to 1024 x 600.

can't help you much with the "static" noise other than to say that computers have moving parts and electrical current travelling through them, which generates noise.

    OK. This is usually because the video driver isn't installed. I haven't heard of a relation to the inability to go into standby, so we'll just update the graphics driver for now. Check the link below.

    It might be worth updating the chipset too, but just try updating the graphics driver as above and let me know how you from there. good luck!

HP 2000-410US when turned on the power light button blinks 1 time every 5 seconds, nothing elas

1. Disconnect anything that is connected to your laptop. Usb Flash discs, External HDDs, Wireless Devices using dongles etc.
2. Make sure that your device does not receive any power i.e. Disconnect your ac cable, and remove battery from your laptop.
3. Hold down the power button for 5 seconds. This would drain remaining power from your laptop. But as the power cable and the battery are disconnected, you should not expect anything to happen.
4. Identify where your RAM is located under your laptop. Unscrew the cover off, then remove the RAM from your laptop. Replace the cover temporarily.
5. Flip over your laptop. Connect your power cable to the laptop, NOT THE BATTERY NEH! Then press the power button. Sometimes your laptop will make long beeps to let you know the RAM is not inserted in your laptop. But nothing will happen on your monitor because it needs RAM to show you something.
6. After those beeps, remove the power cable. Press the Power Button to drain remaining power on your laptop. Flip the Laptop and replace the RAM you have removed earlier.
7. Insert your power cable and try restarting your laptop and see what happens. I am sure by now you should have some response on your laptop monitor.

NB: While performing the above mentioned, remember PC or Laptop parts are delicate. Even static electricity can damage them. Thus before handling your laptop components, make sure you touch the wall or any large metal subject from time to time to discharge the static. Wear 100% cotton cloths as you are working on it. Bare feet even better to discharge the static

Acer aspire 5352-BZ481 comes to black static screen

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. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Where is the ram located on a toshiba satelite L455 S5891?

There are usually bay doors on the underside of the laptop that contain screws to hold them in. One of these bay doors contains the RAM. Be careful when using tools to unscrew the bay doors. make sure not to use magnetic screwdrivers because there is a chance you could mess up a piece of hardware. it is also recommended that when disassembling a laptop or any PC you use an anti-static wrist strap to prevent any components from being ruined due to static shock.

Please help

The reason you are getting the beeps is because your computer has found Hardware problems. Different amounts and length of beeps mean different things. Laptops are different from Desktops so i cant tell you what it is but its most likely to be the RAM since you tried to change it.

When changing RAM: Not all ram is the same
1. Locate the original Ram. Does it Say DDR1 or DDR2. Make sure you get the same!
2. The Speed of the ram

PC66=66MHz SD Ram
PC133=133MHz SD Ram
PC1600=200MHZ DDR2
PC2100=266MHz DDR2
PC2700=333MHZ DDR2
PC3200=400MHz DDR2
PC3500=533MHz DDR2
PC5300=667Mhz DDR2
PC6400=800MHz DDR2
PC8500=1066MHz DDR2

Make sure both ram have the same specs and try to make it the same as the original stick.
When changing Hardware, be careful of Electro Static Discharge. Touch something metal like your computer case or a aluminum kitchen sink. Then static stored in your body may destroy the ram or your Laptop.
