Continual "beep" on startup. Startup screen appears and computer freezes. Replaced hard drive but not the problem. Could it be the memory board?


The beep you hear is a BIOS Beep Code.

The computer's way of telling you something is wrong, and a general area to look in.

The Compaq Presario S5100NX uses an Asus P4G533 motherboard, with an Award BIOS,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/documentSubCategory?tmp_rule=51284&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=363427

Left-click on - Motherboard Specifications, P4G533 (Echo)

One long continuous beep indicates Ram Memory failure.

Your diagnosis is correct.

I would like you to take the ram memory module/s out, and clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom.

Suggestion is to try this, before resolving to replace the ram memory.
A pencil eraser is used to clean the contact pins.

The Compaq Presario S5100NX, uses DDR Sdram ram memory modules,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

The above link is provided to give a closeup side view, of a DDR Sdram ram memory module, and it's gold plated contact pins.

Use the pencil eraser to stroke down each contact pin. Both sides.
(A DDR Sdram ram memory module has 184 contact pins. 92 on each side)

Refrain from touching the contact pins with your fingers.
You can touch the body of the module anywhere you wish, as it is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

If an eraser on the end of a pencil is used, do Not let the metal part of the pencil, rub against the contact pin.

Use air to remove the eraser dust. You can use a can of compressed air for computers, or air from your mouth may be sufficient.

Reinstall the ram memory module/s.

HP Support product specifications, indicate the Compaq Presario S5100NX comes with one - 256MB DDR Sdram ram memory module.

If there has been two ram memory modules installed, suggestion is to reinstall one at a time, to see if there is a bad ram memory module.

Yes, it's kind of a pain.

When installing just one ram memory module, it is installed in Slot 1.
The ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07845&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=363427&lang=en

Scroll down the above page until you come to the motherboard illustration, and the motherboard photo underneath it.

In the motherboard illustration - DDR DIMM 1 (64/72 bit, 184-pin module) indicates Slot 1.

Install one cleaned ram memory module in Slot 1, plug the computer into power, WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Works?

Computer shut down normally (Start>Turn Off Computer>Turn Off), unplug from power, observe anti-Static precautions.

Remove that ram memory module, install the other one.

[Anti-Static Precautions:

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the hardware components inside a computer.

You may not even see it, or feel it.
(Hmmm, I did everything right, but my computer doesn't work)

Computer on a table, unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case, to relieve your body of Static.

If you get up, and walk away in the middle of working on your computer, upon your return Touch the metal frame again ]

Note the Locating Notch, on the bottom of the ram memory module.
It lines up with a Locating Lug, in the bottom of the ram slot on the motherboard.

At a casual glance the Locating Notch may seem to be in the middle.
It is Not.
Assure that you have the module turned the correct way when reinstalling, so that the Notch lines up with the Lug.

Note the Locks at each end of the ram slot. (White in color)
The top of the Lock is eased towards the outside.
(Away from the ram slot)
Ease both Locks up at the same time.

Note that the bottom corners of the ram module, sit in small slots, of each Lock.

As the ram module is pushed down into place, the Locks are brought up simultaneously.

Note that there is a Notch, on each side of the ram module.
The Lock has a protrusion ('Bump') that fits into the Notch, when the ram is fully seated in the ram slot.

Sometimes the 'Bump' does not fit in perfectly into the Notch. It's okay.

If there are two clicks, from the Locks snapping into the Notches, the ram memory module should be fully seated.

I try to install ram but somethings in the way?


What's in the way may I ask. If your not sure what this something is then please describeing it in full detail so I can try to understand what you may be talking about. I will tell you this though. When removeing and putting ram in, you need to be VERY gentle. That stuff's expensive! :'(. But when removeing, you press down on the two white things on both the left and right side of the ram. Then remove it by touching the skinny sides of it. Don't place your fingers in the middle of the Ram. ALSO. THIS IS IMPORTANT. When messing with ANYTHING in your computer, make SURE you have some bare part of your body touching something metal on the frame of your computer. This will ground it and prevent your from frying your computer. If you already have a slot open to put Ram into, just push the white things to the side on the Ram slot, and push the Ram in, evenly distributing the force from the left and right side. If you do this properly, it will latch itself in and you just have to put your computer back together.

And to answer your question, you most likely need to move whatever is in the way, you want as much room as possible when putting in your Ram. You don't nessicarily NEED alot of room.... but lets be safe. You don't wanna replace that Ram OR your Computer. Good luck ^_^

(I also recommend running a memory test as soona soyur done. I use an unbuntu operateing system disc to do this but most people don't just have one of those laying around so I'm not actually sure how you would take a memory test. Sorry. Google it. I wish I knew what to telly ou for that)

Upgrading my compaq evo d51s


A ram upgrade could help, however you may need to think about upgrading your CPU also. First check if you can upgrade your CPU. Your best option may be to upgrade to a new computer altogether.

Screen goes black and pc won't re-boot


You need to update your video card or your drivers software. Another possibility is you do not have enough RAM Memory installed. Look into how much memory you have and see if you need to upgrade it. I hope this helps.

Need to replace memory in HP Pavilion a200y


Before starting this answer is so long that I have provided it in 4 different sections. The sections below are as follows: Required RAM Information, How to Install RAM, Verifying Installation of RAM, Link to newegg.com to purchase RAM.

Required RAM Information
This computer uses a standard memory size of 256 MB, which can be upgraded to 1 GB. The memory type is PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM. There are two sockets which are provided for inserting memory in this computer. In a moment I will provide you with a link to a good website called Newegg.com which sells computer memory and other computer products for low prices. But first let me explain how to go about installing the memory. First I would recommend upgrading to 1 GB if it is within your budget, as your computer will run alot faster. When purchasing the memory make sure that you get 2 512 MB sticks (modules) if you want to have 1 GB. Get 2 256 MB sticks (modules) if you want to have 512 MB, or get 2 128 MB sticks if you want to have 256 MB sticks (modules). The reason for this is because there are two sockets on your motherboard inside the computer for inserting RAM, and the two sockets work together, so they both need to have an equal amount of memory (RAM) in both sockets.

How To Install RAM
First power off and uplug the computer, thenopen up the computer, and make sure that you have it on a hard no carpeted surface when opening it up. (Carpet helps produce static electricity in your body and static electricity is BAD for computers). Since the computer is powered off and uplugged it will not hurt you to touch the outside metal casing of the power supply (just never take a power supply apart!). When you touch the power supply you will discharge any static electricity you have built up before touching any circuit boards or other sensitive computer components. The memory sticks should be next to each other and should have a little tab on both sides of the stick. Push the tabs down on both sides of each stick down at the same time (one stick at a time!). This should make the sticks pop up a little bit. You can then remove them. But make sure when handling computer memory or any other components that you never touch any of the computer chips or the little gold colored connectors. Take out both memory sticks and set them aside. Take out the new stick out of the bag (these bags are antistatic bags so they are good to stick any computer components in that you are not using, like those memory sticks you just removed!). Make sure to handle those sticks carefully. When inserting the memory sticks place your index finger on either end with your thumbs on top this way you can know that you are handling the stick properly and you can apply equal pressure to both sides when inserting the sticks. Don't provide to much pressure, just enough so that the sticks go in and the tabs pop into either side. When installing make sure that the notches on the bottom of the stick line up with what you see in the socket (these notches and keys are placed there to insure you install the sticks correctly). After this you can close up the computer case, plug it in and power it on. That is the method for installing the memory.

Verifying Installation of RAM
To make sure that the amount of memory you installed is what the computer reports, right click on my computer > click on properties > click on General Tab (if not already selected) This should show the amount of memory installed. If it is a little less than you installed this is because your video component uses a little bit of this memory and it is not reported.

Link to newegg.com to Purchase RAM
The link to Newegg.com where you can find your required memory is:

I hope that this has helped you and please let me know if you have any more questions.

I WAS TOLD BY AOL THAT I DID NOT HAVE ENOUGH MEMORY SPACE. I HAVE 248MB OF MEMORY AND NEED AT LEAST 256 MB RAM. HOW DO I AQUIRE MORE MEMORY?


RAM Memory is a small 1 X 4 inch board that plugs into the mother board. Depending on your computer and type of mother board, your RAM Memory needs to meet certain specifications. The best thing to do is to take a RAM board out of the computer and take it to a Circuit City or Best Buy store so they can get you what you need...but if you have a friend that can help you, then Ebay would be the cheapest alternative. Here is a How To guide on installing RAM (same thing for taking RAM out of a computer, just backwards). Also, look at the RAM socket (the connector on the mother board) and make sure there are more like it right next to the one that is curently holding the RAM. This way you can simply add more memory modules. Hopes this helps a bit and dont forget to rate my answer.
