Sorry to hear about your problems,
1st. We need to know what kind of computer, Laptop or PC.?
2nd. What kind of error messages are you receiving, when the unit try's to startup. ?
3rd. Have you tried to back step and replace the new (not working memory) with the original

Note….. Always have power disconnected from the unit.
Disconnect all devices, lay unit on its side, where you can see comfortably.
Always, double check your work. Take your time.

Chances are, you do not have the memory seated properly.
Look at the memory and try to fit into the bit slot. Do not force the memory.

If you are receiving a Beep message when starting unit, it is not seeing the installed memory.
Install one piece at a time and try powering up unit.
Don’t mix memory, work on one unit at a time.

Hope this information has helped you.
Readers, please rate you technician’s.

Thanks

Remove the new memory and try it again. If it returns to normal then you probably have installed the Memory incorrectly or have a bad stick of RAM.

Usually this means that the memory is not compatible with the computer you installed it on. Try taking the memory you installed out and put the old memory back in there. Then turn on the computer just to verify that it will load. After it loads successfully (hopefully), Shut down the computer and add one stick of memory to the computer. Turn it on, if it doesn't load then the memory is not compatible and if you have more memory then just keep following the steps above till you've tested all of the memory sticks.

Solutions

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source

Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.

Note: This error has also been known to occur when a memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it. If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras, ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer.

If you are attempting to boot from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files or is corrupt.

If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive.

Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.

Press any key to boot from the CD

Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.

Note: If you are not receiving the above message and your BIOS boot options are set properly it's also possible that your CD-ROM drive may not be booting from the CD-ROM properly. Verify the jumpers are set properly on the CD-ROM drive.

Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS

Verify that your computer hard disk drive is properly setup in the CMOS setup. Improper settings can cause this error.

Corrupt NTLDR or NTDETECT.COM file

This is the inherent risk in updating firmware to optical drives.

Buy a new drive, power down the PC, install it and reboot the PC. If it is and IDE drive, or a SATA for that matter, before you buy a new drive make sure to disconnect and reconnect both ends of the cable prior to replacing it, just to be sure it wasn't an accidentally dislodged cable causing the problem.

When i turn it on only the battery light works what should i do and what is the problem


I just experienced the same issue and found some excellent advice when facing this symptom. Search FixYa for "Ibm t30 post beep error 1 3 3 1." It could be one of your memory boards or the memory socket itself. I pulled out the hard disk, CD ROM, and two memory boards (there is good info on the Lenovo site on how to safely do all this) . I then added back one memory board, applied power, and voila the T30 came to life. I then added the hard disk, CD ROM, and rebooted after adding each device. After adding back the second memory board, I experienced the original problem. So this memory board or the memory socket appears to be the culprit.

INF file textsetup.sif is missing


his behavior may occur if any one of the following conditions is true:
  • Your Windows XP CD-ROM is scratched, smudged, or dirty. Clean the Windows XP CD-ROM with a soft cloth, insert it in the CD-ROM drive, and then click OK.
  • Your CD-ROM drive is not working correctly or the CD-ROM might be vibrating too much for the laser to accurately read the data. For more information about this problem, see your hardware documentation or contact the CD-ROM manufacturer.
  • If you are using multiple CD-ROM drives, your computer may be trying to locate files on the wrong drive. If your hardware has a feature to disable CD-ROM drives that are not being used, disable the CD-ROM drives that you are not using.
  • Your computer is over-clocked. Because over-clocking is very memory-intensive, decoding errors may occur when you extract files from your Windows XP CD-ROM.
  • Try to use the default clock timings for your motherboard and processor. For more information about how to do this, see your hardware documentation or contact the motherboard manufacturer.
  • Your computer has damaged or mismatched random access memory (RAM) or cache memory. For example, you might be using a combination of extended data out (EDO) and non-EDO RAM, or different RAM speeds.

    Decoding errors may occur even if Windows appears to be running correctly. These errors occur because of the additional stress that is put on your computer when Windows tries to extract files and to access the hard disk.

    To determine how to make your computer cache memory unavailable while you are running the Setup program, see your hardware documentation or contact your hardware manufacturer.
  • Ultra direct memory access (DMA) is turned on in your computer's CMOS settings, and the data is moving too quickly.
  • Change from DMA mode to Processor Input/Output (PIO) mode to lower your data transfer rate. If this does not resolve the problem, lower your PIO mode settings. The higher your PIO mode settings are, the faster your data transfer is.
  • You are using a third-party memory manager.
  • There is a virus on your computer.
If you continue to receive this error message, copy the i386 folder from the CD-ROM drive to your local hard disk, and then try to run the Setup program from your hard disk.

Pc died


Hello, I have had similar problems with that same motherboard in the past and have found that resetting the cmos (see users manual) or just taking the battery of the motherboard for a few minutes can solve this. CAUTION please remove the power lead on your tower before touching any components inside, and earth yourself first by touching metal.. as static discharge kills pc components..
Hope this helps.....

Hi Diviola, you have no choice but to buy a CD-ROM drive. They are not as expensive as you might think. You're windows CD can format the hard drive in you're computer before installing windows. Some people can use a USB memory stick but in order to copy the windows CD software to the memory stick you'll still need a CD-ROM drive. A 2GB or 1GB memory stick will cost as much or more than a CD-ROM drive. Please click on the link to see some prices for a standard CD-ROM drive.

The link above is a CD-ROM drive & can also make CD-RW's (RW stands for re-write).
You can replace you're CD-ROM drive you're self. Just do not disconnect the cables from you're old CD-ROM drive untill you have the new drive. Connect the cables to the new drive (one at a time) as you disconnect them from the old CD-ROM drive.
Double check that the cables are tightly connected before you power up the PC. Load you're windows CD into the new CD-ROM drive & when you start you're PC up windows will start to load.
When you receive the new CD-ROM drive & if you need help connecting & running anything. You can come back here & ask questions. I'll help you through this.

Luck!

Dell Inspiron 1200 no POST


There are two memory slots on this model, but there is no "Onboard" memory. Without the memory that you removed, your laptop will not post. It sounds like a dead motherboard issue to me, especially since you have pretty much torn it down to barebones. Rarely, this can also be caused by the processor but it is less likely. Unfortunately, since you cannot keep it running, there isn't much chance of diagnostics. I hope this helped.
