Re: samsung laptop R70wvp t7100
Ram problem..if you have more than one memstick remove one at a time to determine which one at fault it could be one of them not seated properly if it turns out one seems faulty try the one thats ok in other slot just to make sure it is memstick and not connection or motherboard fault.

Plug in an external monitor. If you get display then either the screen is bad or the inverter.
If you get nothing, try removing the memory and booting the computer. If you get BIOS and it starts beeping one or more of the memory modules is bad. If you still get nothing then you will want to replace the motherboard.
When you press F10 to enter the set up nothing happens, is that correct, and what does the beep sound like? Also, does it beep if you don't press anything, and after the initial screen with the F10 message, what does it do?
Gateway laptop is really ****.
I bought Gateway MX8711 in March 2007, after 6 months i use it...the hard disk failed.
Gateway replaced a new Hitachi hard disk for me but not more than 8 months and it failed again.
Gateway told me that i have no more warranty because the repair warranty is only 90 days.
I bought this laptop and use it not more than 2 years, the hard disk was failed twice.
Usually Hard disk manufacturer provided 3 years warranty for the hard disk. The manufacturer year of the hard disk is May 2007....they should able to help because the har disk not more than a year being used...but they don't. This is really bad customer service and not fair to the buyer.
I will not buy any Gateway products anymore....i swear.
