Make sure the RAM you purchased is compatible with your computer. Putting the wrong RAM in is one thing that could cause this problem. You could also try reseating the RAM as if it is not seated properly then the computer does not see it. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

    Beeping usually signifies either a RAM or Video card problem. If you have already checked the RAM then I would say the graphics card has come loose or went bad. Hope this helps.

I have a compaq 6820,s and it won't power up, i get nothing, no screen, sound power, nothing at all. I change the power cord and nothing happen. So could anyone out there help me please?

Try reseating the RAM modules, If this does not work then the RAM maybe faulty. Remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. If the RAM is faulty them it needs to be replaced.

When I power on my laptop there's a beep code, on my m30x-s181st

That is your memory error code.
Re-seat your ram, or restore the ram you replaced it with if this is an upgrade. If neither of those apply, you should test your ram slots by leaving your ram door opened and apply constant pressure with your fingers lightly pushing the ram stick while booting.

If you get a boot screen, then you have the infamous goal post flex.
Those little upright locking wings on each side of your ram will flex over time and allow the memory stick to float up, unseating your ram.
Those little plastic brackets holding your locks on just get tired and begin stretching and relaxing over time

When this happens, your ram LOOKS like it is seated, but it's actually floating away from the contacts. I have fixed many Dell Laptops with this problem by placing hard packing foam under the ram door to keep the memory sticks seated. Yes it's cheap, but it's also permanent.

    Error message after installing memory ram upgrade.....

    The memory appears to be the right kind.

    Try installing just one 1GB module, and run the diagnostics (press F12 at boot time and select diagnostics).
