SOURCE: laptop freeze up and shutdown by itself, then can't boot up after

If it is still under warranty, you'd save yourself a lot of time and money if you just send it in for repair. If it isn't, the way to test if the RAM is bad is by trying to use the stick in another laptop or by trying to replace the RAM you currently have with RAM that you know is working (has worked on another computer). If the problem is with the motherboard or CPU, for most people it's better to just sell the laptop AS-IS with a good description on eBay and buy a new laptop.

SOURCE: Computer Information

U may always refer to it motherboard to get to know the supported hardware that plug to it. Since u are mention about Intel 945G/GZ/P/PL family motherboard, each type of the motherboard (type G, GZ, P, PL) have their own specification, but the same thing is their are design to support Intel Core 2 Duo. Pentium D or Pentium 4 processor. And all can support DDR2 memory. Here you can refer to the manual of the motherboard for more details e.g. pg17 (availability 2009Nov16): http://www.intel.com/design/chipsets/datashts/307502.htm

SOURCE: ecs desknote a928, 2ghz cpu,

Hi there,

There could be multiple different reasons for this.

Possible Problems and Troubleshooting
1) The RAM (Random Access Memory) may have gone faulty.
2) The Motherboard may have been damaged.
3) The CPU is faulty
4) The Hard Disk is damaged - But then the laptop would still boot to the BIOS and tell you that no Hard Disk is detected so this is not your problem.
5) The ribbon cable from the Motherboard to the screen is damaged - But you said that an external screen doesn't work as well so this is not your problem.

This only leaves the RAM, CPU and Motherboard as possible problems.

Solution
You can buy a chip of RAM from a computer store and open the laptop and replace the RAM and test if it is working. This would be the cheapest way of finding out the problem. If it doesn't work, you will need to take your laptop to a specialist to get them to test if the problem is the CPU or the Motherboard, then you will just need to buy the part that needs to be replaced.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a great day and please remember to rate this solution.

Best regards,

Age and dust accumulation. try blowing the case out or get a vacuum cleaner and clean out all the ports. If this doesn't work, you may have to take it to a computer repair shop to get it cleaned and serviced properly. The heat paste on the processor may have dried out and be causing an overheat.

Can i upgrade ram size 512MB to 1GB


Hello visit the mainboards homepage here:

http://www.mercury-pc.com/downloads.php

And type in the mainboard number, for downloading the manual.

I would say you can upgrade the ram, older mainboards supports up to 2 gb.
But it depends, how old it is.

Install this program to see what ram type, you have:

What kind of ram do i need


Yes, there is. You can find information about it here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR_SDRAM
If you want real help, know your motherboard's brand & model so we could check what type of RAM it supports. If you can't find out, download and install speccy or aida64. It could give detailed report about the specs of your pc.
Hope this helps.

Toshiba satellite a210 was on and working yesterday left it came back to it later it was off no power to it no battery no lights no nothing completely dead , power lead works but will not do a thing.


It could be one of the following:
1. Bad/damaged power jack.
2. Bad motherboard.

Visually inspect the power jack to make sure it is not broken or damaged.
Test voltage on the power jack to make sure it is not damaged.

RAM PROBLEM


Download CPU-Z then see what it displays as. Vista can show different to what you actually have because it allocates memory to things.

My i865PEa-7IF Motherboard with 4gb ram kingstone ddr400, but bios reads 3.5gb. Bios is 103. CPU is P4 630.


It is possible that your system is using shared RAM i.e. some of the System RAM is allocated for Video Card. (ehteshamhusain@gmail.com)
