Question about Computers & Internet
The start button lights up. black screen and 4slow, 3fast, 4slow beeps. at frist it would boot normally if the hole laptop was gently wamed up near a radiator for several hours.
This is either a RAM issue or the betteri on the motherboard which is dead.
Try to replace the RAM first (not the cheapest but the easiest to do), if you still have the same issue replace the time battery on the motherboard

This problem is commonly happen form the memory or RAM. At this time you need to check the memory. Remove the memory and turn it on identify in there is sound provided. This could be a problem with the system memory, an expansion card, or the motherboard.
Try to use another RAM or use the another memory slot. Clean the RAM and also the memory slot.

Insert the original Windows CD-ROM into the DVD-drive, and see if the computer will "boot" from that disk. If so, then it could be your 'C:' drive which is having the problem, and thus not "booting" your computer from it.
