My w3107 machine tower just beeps repeatedly when you turn it on and the hp vp17 monitor just says no input signal. Any ideas on how to fix it before my husband throws it out the window?????

Constant beeping when you turn a computer on is an indication that you have a RAM memory error. To confirm this, open the tower (after unplugging the unit and pressing and holding the power button in for 10 seconds to confirm there's no charge left). Locate the sticks of RAM memory and remove 1. Then plug the unit back in and reboot. In most cases, the beeping will go away and the machine will boot up. This doesn't usually mean you have a bad RAM memory module, just a bad "bank" on the motherboard. If you like the machine, and removing the RAM works for you, you can either run minus the stick of RAM (the machine will be slower) or do a motherboard upgrade. You can usually get a good motherboard + CPU upgrade in the $90 range. Choose a motherboard that will accommodate the existing RAM memory to keep the project cost effective.

Adding computer memory

The only thing you could do is put in a 256MB module in the slot that you have access to. Only one socket is user upgradable. The second socket is only upgradable by a Dell service center. They would have to install a second 256 module to get you to the 512MB max.

How to upgrade memory

The NEC Versa m500e has 2 memory slots. Each slot can hold DDR PC2700 with a maximum of 512MB per slot.

I'm not sure where the memory is located on the Versa, but normally in the middle on the bottom of the laptop there is a memory slot. on some units the memory is located under the keyboard, so you have to remove this first to change the memory.

Hope this helps
