Hi there!
The memory is located at the bottom of the laptop in the middle, so flip the laptop over, locate the memory, it has a cover you'll need a screw driver and you will be taking out 2 screws, after you have taken out the screws, slide the memory cover and remove it, then you will see the memory, there will be a retaining clip holding the memory it should be in each side of the memory, after that pull the memory up to 45 degrees angle, lift the memory then pull the memory from the connector, If you have 2 memories just do the same process.
Hope this helps!

When I turn my laptop off or I am done using it, I close the lid/screen. The last time I used my laptop, the screen would not come on. It was a black screen, but I could very faintly see the windows...


It sounds like it did not properly go into stand by or hibernate. Try holding down the power button for about 5 or 6 seconds until you hear it power off. Then wait a few seconds and then turn it back on.

Be sure to email me back if you have any more questions orif you need any assistance with this solution. Thank you

Flashing Caps Lock for Dell 1420 and won't start.


A quick look on the Internet and the DELL support side indicates the flashing caps lock light is the result of a SDRAM memory fault. It flashes 10 times, after which all led lights above the keyboard go off. have you installed new memory lately? Maybe it cam loose. If not swapping out the memory may solve your problem.

Won't post/boot


Try removing one of the two memory SODIMMS under the cover on the bottom of the unit. It sounds like you could have a bad memory problem that is keeping the machine from completing the POST (power on self test). I'd try one stick at a time and see if that helps.
Good luck, please rate this solution if you feel it has helped!!

My E1705 does finish coming up or turning on.


if the computer is booting up (you see the dell logo and then the windows logo) it could just be that your ram needs to be reseated, its very easy to do but if your not comfortable doing so any computer shop would be able to do it but most likely not for free. if that doesnt do it try to reseat the hard drive and or the wireless cards, any loose components can cause it to freeze, also if you have any USB Devices hooked to the computer during bootup make sure you remove them while troubleshooting. Past that it would be either a mechanical failure in the Harddrive of the computer or possibly failing memory or motherboard. You will need to do extensive troubleshooting to determine that. If you have a waranty with Dell they will walk you through the paces if your not sure what to do next you can ask me as well.

Good luck!

Best Regards,

B.

Dell Lattitude C840 Laptop


The 3 LED's (Num Lock, Caps Lock, Scroll Lock) are used by Dell to diagnose no-post issues such as yours. The only error code close to yours is [Num Lock ON, Caps Lock FLASHING, Scroll Lock ON]. This indicates a a memory error. Try reseating the memory modules. If you have 2 memory modules, insert one at a time to determine the faulty module.
