Doesn't work after put second RAM slot to E4710 laptop


No they are not related. The yellow question mark means you don't have the correct driver installed for your modem. The ram was probably just not seated properly or is dead. Or the ram slot may also be dead. Test the new ram stick in the ram slot that is for sure working with the old stick and see if it works.

No image on monitor, only beeps four times


Four beeps means Faulty RAM.
1. If u know how to open and set RAM, then open ur RAM by simply opening the RAM cover on the backside of ur laptop, there wil be 2 screw, u have to open it first, then just remove RAM by pressing both side locks.
2. After removing the RAM, clean it with news paper aur any clean cloth.
3. Place the RAM again to its slot. (remember the cut mark of slot, don't try to place hardly)
4. After placing RAM, tight screws and then start the laptop again.
5. If the beeps are coming again then change the RAM. (If it is in warranty u can replace)

My toshiba laptop will not power on. Disc drive will not start.


laptops are very good normally but don't boot up if there is a device in the USB slot or a CD/DVD in the drive.
If it still refuses to POST, remove the AC Adapter, remove the battery and remove the hard drive.
Power the unit up without the hard drive and it should complete POST and complain that there is no hard drive. If that doesn't work remove AC adapter, ensure battery is disconnected and remove hard drive and RAM. Try again. If it still doesn't work, you have a mother board fault and it needs a service centre. www.Toshiba.com will help you out.
If it does work at one of the options, when you have closed the laptop down, replace the RAM first and test, then the Hard Drive.
Hope this fixes your problem.

Can not find second ram chip


Remove both pieces of ram (mark them with a felt tip marker so you know which one is which), and clean the contacts on the ram and the slots with a pink pencil eraser. Be gentle though, you don't want to remove the gold on the contacts, just remove the oxidation and make 'em bright again. You can shape the eraser to fit the slot with a sharp knife - and be sure to remove the eraser debris from the slots with a soft brush (dry toothbrush is good) . If still no good try this:
  1. Remove both pieces of ram.
  2. insert the second piece of ram in the first slot (leave the other slot empty) If the second piece of ram is detected, then the ram is good, and the second slot is likely the problem. If the ram is not detected, then the second stick of ram is the problem. Confirm this by putting ram stick 1 into slot 2. If the known good stick of ram (1) doesn't work in slot 2, then the slot is dead. If this is the case, get a larger stick of ram for slot 1. Let me know if this helps or not.

Dell Latitude D600 - RAM not recognized


One of the DIMMS might be incompatible or faulry.
Put one DIMM in at a time to determine which is not working.
If they both work separately then it appears they are incompatible together. Try to get the DIMMs from the same manufacturer, with the same specs.

Acer travelmate 2003lc will not boot with new ram


512MB (FT64MSD64V3F)
200 Pin Dimm - SDRAM - 2.5V - DDR - PC2700 (PC-333) - Non-ECC

is the correct type of RAM for your laptop.
Have you tried booting with all combinations.

512 in slot 1 --- Boots
move same dimm to slot 2 (on it's own) and try booting.
boot with 256mb in slot 1 and known to be good 512 in number 2

This laptop should allow up to 2GB RAM. So I don't belive it is an issue with the mother board not seeing the amout of RAM. I think it could either be flaky dimm or your slot 2 is damaged

Dell latitude D600 problem


The flashing caps lock is an indication of a failed POWER on Self-Test (POST)

Remove the HDD, Battery, AC adapter, RAM and Modem

Press and hold power button for 15 seconds

Connect AC, see if you get any beep codes. If you do, power off, disconnect power, insert RAM, connect AC and reboot. If system boots, power off and add hard drive. If it doesn't, replace the motherboard.

If the system boots with RAM, but fails to boot with HDD, replace HDD 1st.
