umm .. Are both RAM memory modules the same type? You can fit different types of RAM to a computer but they may not be compatible together. Check that both modules are the same.
Other than that, it sounds as if the problem may be slot 2. This would suggest that either the RAM isn't being correctly engaged or the slot is faulty.
Switch off the computer. Put a memory module into slot 2 to see if the computer works. Try it with both memory modules using slot 2. If neither memory module works in slot 2 this indicates a fault - motherboard probably.
If one memory module works in slot 2 - but not the other module - this tends to indicate a mismatch between the RAM modules and they are not compatible together.
It could be that you have not insert the memory sticks in correctly this can result in not screen. 1. check to see if you have the memory sticks seated in their slots correctly. 2. remove the hard drive and re - insert it into the hard drive slot.
Some model laptops have memory slots in different locations.
One would be on the bottom of the laptop and one would be on top of the motherboard under the keyboard.
The memory slot on top of the motherboard would already be fitted with a memory module and only needs to be replaced with a larger RAM module if required.
The other memory slot is under the keyboard. Below is the service manual that has the full disassembly instructions for thelaptop. You can see the memory module installation on page 83. Just follow the guide on keyboard removal, the slot will be visible when the keyboard is removed.
Are you sure its the correct speed/type of RAM? According to Google your laptop takes PC2700 DDR RAM, ensure you are using this in both slots to avoid problems. If you have it fully inserted into the slot and nothing happens when you swtich it on then the laptop doesnt like that type of RAM and you'll need to change it.
how to check the Ram slot location
1) most laptop have two slots at back, so no other slot under the keyboard
2) some laptop has onboard Ram(on the surface of motherboard) ,if you see one slot at back so no any slot under the keyboard
3) if the laptop no any slot at back it should be one or two slot under the keyboard
your laptop no ram slot under the keyboard
hope it help you to improve your idea
I had this same problem with my 600m laptop. How many times do the lights flash, before they stop flashing?
Cause: There is a physical problem with the computer that it is detecting at startup diagnostics.
Solution: You should have two pieces of RAM installed. Carefully, remove the memory slot cover. Swap the 2 pieces of memory you have in there (please follow memory installation and removal for laptops to the letter, by never touching any of the electronic contacts and handling the memory from its sides). Make sure, they sit in the slot properly (to the best you can see). Then, place back the memory cover, very carefully, and screw in. If you see the memory door cover not closing properly, the RAM might be improperly inserted. Please go back to the swapping of RAM step. :)
If this didn't work, 1 of the 2 RAM's you have are no longer functioning properly. Please follow the steps to openning the memory door again and remove RAM in "B" slot first. Then close it and try to start the computer.
If it still doing the same light flashes, open the memory door and remove RAM in slot "A". then place the RAM you removed from slot "B" into slot "A". Then start the computer again.
