Not sure there is a way to 'reset' the modules, but you can remove them one by one to see if one is bad.

Just flip the hinges on each side of the memory stick and the module should pop out. I would remove one by one then startup the computer and see if that's the problem

    Yes you can and is suggested to restart after each removal, just to verify if it is good memory or not.

Hello my Acer Aspire M5640 just crashed it powers up but bios does not boot up can you help thanks I pulled memory out and cpu fan and power supply fan are on


If you have no 'BIOS' startup display, try:
  • Unplug the PC from the main AC power to force a hard reset. Reboot and test.
  • cleaning the memory board 'gold' contact with a white soft pencil eraser and swap them around if you have a couple. Reboot and test.
  • using a single memory board if you have more than one. Reboot and test for each memory board individually.
If you have 'BIOS' startup display, but fail to boot, also try:
  • Check and re-seat all external and internal cables (HDD, USB), and PCI cards (eg. Video)
  • Check Bios setting expecially for HDD
Hope it helps and good luck!

Check the processor on the machine first: is it seated properly, is the cooling fan turning on it. Next, reseat all of the memory modules in the case. Finally, test the keyboard and mouse and confirm they work; try a different keyboard and mouse on the machine. Listen for any unusual noises in the case (any noises that sound out of the ordinary), try running the machine with the side panel off if possible.

I would suggest going with XP Pro first off but what you need to do is get into your bios and change the boot priority to the cdrive as the first device then harddrive as second. Put your XP disc in and reboot the computer after a few moments you should see press any key to install ...... this will start you off with the install from here on follow onscreen instructions.

Onsce at windows desktop you will need to get a ton of drivers and this is were the fun comes in. Use support.intel.com for all intel devices inside the system. After that you will have to goto your device manager and see what still needs to be installed. Now you will have to hunt down the manufacures websites and go to there support page and get needed drivers.
