Question about Dell Inspiron 700M Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron 700m that was working flawlessly until this weekend. While on vacation, I had it plugged in and all programs closed. I closed the lid which usually sends it into Standby, then Hibernate. I woke up the next morning and opened the lid to the "Blue Screen of Death" and something about a memory dump. I turned it off by holding the power button down, waited, then tried to turn it back on. All I got was a short beep, then 3 beeps, 4 beeps, and 3 beeps and a black screen. It shows the battery charging if plugged in and shows the power "ring" lit up green. But it's not doing ANYTHING. Any hints on what to do next to fix it? Thank you!!
It sounds like there is an issue with the system memory.
Remove both the power adapter and the battery. Turn the laptop over and locate the RAM (memory) cover and remove the holding screw.
Take out the system memory and clean the brass contacts, also clean the slots that the memory sits in.
Re-seat the memory making sure it clips into place nice and tight and replace the RAM cover.
Return power to the laptop and turn it on to see if that has helped.
If it still won't boot up then you may need to purchase new memory for the laptop.
