Sorry Smithy, you need ram for the laptop to work.
The only thing you can do is get some ram and put it in the laptop.
I saw some cheap ram for this laptop on ebay. you might want to check it out.

Noticed screen flickering occasionally the last


Screen bulb burning out, bad inverter, or LCD wires crimped or exposed and touching each other and shorting out.  Have IT open this puppy up and look into it or you can do it if you got the tools and your handy. You can get a new screen on e-bay for around $150

Please help! My Dell Inspiron Mini will not start up!!


Hi,
There is a hardware problem with the laptop causing it not to boot up, if you have only had this laptop for 3 weeks then i recommend you take advantage of the manufacturers warranty and sent it in for them to deal with as a hardware failure within 3 weeks is quite rare.

Cannot start Sony VAIO PCG-5J2L /Goes to black screen only


During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.

If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.

If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".

Sony Vaio


If you get the initial Sony screen, then this is a hard drive crash, and the drive will need to be replaced. If you do not get the initial screen, then it a failed motherboard component. Either way,, you have a hardware issue, and there's no simple fix. I hope your parents will be away for a while. If you need anything else, just ask, and good luck.

LCD laptop screen


It is definitely the screen or the inverter. Usually the screen and inverter come as one piece. I would check with the manufacturer. Unfortunately for you, the LCD is one of the most expensive parts to replace on a laptop.

Just the simple fact of you mentioning that it works fine with an external monitor tells me that its not the video card. If it was the video card, you would see the exact same thing happening on your external monitor as well.

Hope this helps!
