Hi
if your talking abot the ram connections try using a pencil eraser. That should remove any grime or dirt that may have gathered on the terminals!

Do yourself a favor and don't ever mix a liquid with a computer....not even if you think it is dry. Computers have two enemies...liquid and heat. Open the side of the case on your computer after you disconnect the power cord and press the power button for 10 seconds to bleed all power from the system. Get a couple of cans of compressed air, specifically designed for office equipment. Youcan get this at office supply, computer retail shops etc. Open all doors, case opening etc., that you can and start at the front of the case and blow the dust, hair and dirt out of the system. Make sure to blow out the dvd/cd drives, floppies etc., clear out any vents, grates and work your way back to the back of the system paying close attention to the heatsink of the processor. When you are done, button her up and fire her up....that's all you need to do. Good luck

Who on earth told you to clean the RAM? If it's dusty just blow on it but don't even consider doing anything else to it.

P4M2PROP motherboard have power but not working???


The first step would be to clear the CMOS ram manually. To do this, you need physical access to the mother board.

- Make sure the power is off but do not unplug from power.

- Locate Clear CMOS (JBAT) Jumper. From above, lower right hand corner.
- Simply remove the jumper and put it back again.
- Power up.
- If problem persists:

- May be faulty ram
- If you have a video card installed, uninstall it and connect monitor to VGA port of motherboard. It could be a faulty video card.
- CPU could be over heating, clean with compressed air, check fans and CPU grease.

Hope this helps...

It will constantly doin a physical dump of memory


Physical memmory dump( blue death) as it is called happens due to various reasons, which are related to harrdware failure or overloading of hardware. it can happen if the ram, cpu or the harddrive have some problem in connectgionn with the motherboard- try cleaning the sockets of the RAM and trying agin. the blue scrreens means windows went through a critical error<which is hardware related>. if it happens some times its nothing to worry about but if it happens often then you need to get your hardware checked by soem professional as it be corrupted somehow.

Cant get any power to run through my laptop


Tyr this:
Gently remove and clean (with a pencil eraser) and reinstall your memory, then try again.

For you non-techies, it is very easy to hose a perfectly good laptop by NOT fully releasing the side-latches (some metal, some plastic) BEFORE gently lifting the RAM up 1/4", away from the pin/contact seating area, and OUT of the sockets. Actually, if you do it right and do not physically touch the face, sides or corners of the RAM when you use your Left and Right thumbnails to 'tease' the latches away from the sides of the RAM, it will POP out all by itself. smile1.gif
Now... putting new RAM in is REALLY easy and does not require any force or pressure at all. Look at the socket and the RAM and orient your RAM so the slot in it (the RAM) and the raised portion of plastic in the contact seating area line up. If it is OBVIOUSLY not, flip the RAM over and check again. If it still will not, or can not line up... it is the wrong type RAM for your machine. Take it back. Do not try to 'make it fit' ;-)

Once you have RAM oriented so it WILL slot in, take the RAM between your index fingers and thumbs so the contacts are facing AWAY from you and hold firmly by putting the tips of your fingers into the holes on the sides of the RAM, ease the RAM into the socket and seating area, wiggle a bit side to side and seat in snugly, then maintaining the hold with your 2 Thumbs, tease the latches away from the socket edges with your fingernails (under the edges of the new RAM) so they both clear the sides of that RAM, then gently press down a bit further with your thumbs until the RAM face is below the latches and finally release the latches making sure BOTH are now above the RAM face. Done.

Don't FORCE... EVER ;-)
Hope this helps!

HP pavilion 515n runs real slow


Yes, you can add more - But if you have a fragmented HDD, it won't help much. Before you spend money on physical memory, I would do a disk defrag, check to make sure your HDD is not getting too full, and check your virtual memory. On xp you can get to this by right clicking MY COMPUTER, click properties, Performance, Paging file. XP has a problem during install of not setting this right. Change it to "system managed size", apply & ok, reboot your computer. If this doesn't help, and your HDD is not too full, stop some of the things that are loading up on startup.
