My light blinks three times and nothing happens?


1) I would like you to remove ALL power to the Notebook PC. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Place a towel on the table you'll be working on. Place the laptop upside down on the towel. (Bottom facing up. Towel helps to protect table surface, and laptop finish )

3) Looking at the bottom of the laptop, with the Battery Compartment facing away from you, the Memory Module Compartment access cover, is in the middle. (Rectangular cover with a vent in it. The larger Harddrive Bay access cover is below it )

Loosen the two Philips head screws in the cover. Lift the cover on the same side as the screws. Lift the cover at approximately a 45 degree angle, when removing. There are small plastic tabs formed out of the cover, on the opposite side of the screws. These may be easily broken off, if the cover is lifted straight up.

The spring-like retaining clips hold the ram memory module in place.
One on each end. These are gently spread to release the ram memory module.
When released the ram memory module will pop-up slightly.

The ram memory module should be removed, at NO more than a 45 degree angle.

Bringing the ram memory module straight up when removing, will bend the contact pins in the ram memory slot, and damage the gold plated contact pins on the ram memory module.

The gold plated contact pins develop a type of 'corrosion', after time.
This leads to a poor contact with the ram memory module to the ram memory slot.

Advise use a pencil eraser to clean the gold plated contact pins.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1GB_DDR2_SO-DIMM.png

If using an eraser on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser, refrain from letting the metal band touch the contact pins.

Handle the ram memory module by the Body.
The Body is all of the ram memory module, Except the contact pins.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic. Helps shield the ram memory module from Static. (Electricity)

The bottom of the ram memory module is the contact pins.
Start at the top of each contact pin with the eraser, and stroke down.
Do this for All contact pins. Both sides of the ram module.

Doesn't take much rubbing to clean the contact pin. When finished use air to remove the eraser dust. You can use a can of compressed air for computers, if available, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

Reinstall the ram memory module/s. Reinstall the Memory Module
Compartment cover. Reinstall the Battery. Turn the laptop over on a Hard surface, (No towel), and attach the AC adapter. Plug AC adapter into power.

Wait 1 minute. Turn the laptop on.

Still no joy? Post back in a Comment.

When i press the power button i get three beeps and a black screen


Hello.

The most common reason is memory. Could have a bad memory module or loose module.

Disconnect all cables and flip the laptop.

Loosen the screw on the memory cover and remove.

Lift (both) memory module(s) and reinsert one at a time to test. Reconnect the cables and power up to test separately.

Hope this resolves your problem.

P4S55FX+ PROBLEM WITH MEMORY MODULS,IT WANT START WHEN I PUT THREE MODULS WITH 256 RAM!


To test each RAM modules to see if they are OK, put each RAM in at a time in the memory slot.
Check each RAM module - are the the same make and speed. Some RAM modules are incompatible with different manufacturers.
Next try installing the RAM in pairs to see which RAM modules work with each other.

I have removed my ram when i put it back it shows black screen?


Good day.
The first question is the reason why did you removed the memory. Memory modules is sensitive, nevertheless, you can clean the contact points of the memory modules using a pencil eraser, then try installing it again. If you have more than one module, you may try one module at a time. You may also try using other memory socket. Motherboards usually have 2 memory sockets or slots.
Post again here in Fixya if you still have a problem.Good luck.

I can't get my G550 to turn on. It has a charged battery, lights up, but won't engage the hard drive or anything else. I've sent it to the company for warranty repair three times. They replaced the mother...


Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately

IBM xseries 205, Model 8480-43X Memory upgrade an POST BEEP


Those beeps mean that your RAM is not functioning. Are you sure you got the right upgrade type. Sometimes it'll fit into socket but won't work because of speed. Or just try reseating the modules.
