If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory.

If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.


Check the memory module and memory slot contacts.

They are either copper tin or gold.

The colour will tell you which they are.



Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact.

My laptop will not start


Hello,

If this is the first time that you turn on your laptop after resetting it to the factory settings then don't do anything while setup is starting services because you will just mess up the computer. It's really gonna take time to start the services. It's still in the set up process - it's loading some files on it.

I hope this helps!

AM37 & athlon 1.8 gh freezes while setting up XP


More than likely one of the drivers is bad. Hit F8 several times at startup until the boot screen comes up, select boot into "safe mode with networking" .

Use device manager and see if there are any problems. You can delete the drivers, and download & install new drivers if you find problems.
