Hi! i'm responding to your answer to my earlier question. i'm not sure how to respond back to you so i clicked the ask me icon under your user name. sorry if this is not the appropriate way to respond, but it seems like nobody on the internet has a clue of what i'm talking with my laptop except you.
first i removed a 256mb ram chip from back got same error message.
next, as you said it seems like a HD issue. i think so too. when i tried installing win98se, system states that my computer does not have a HD, or HD not functioning properly or i need a special device driver. assumption is HD is bad. attached is a pic of the back of my laptop. i can't get the back/bottom panel off. i've removed all the screws but i cant seem to pry it open. any help again is GREATLY APPRECIATED.

Re: system will not boot
They sometimes snap in so you might need to use a little force make sure all the screws are out and run a small screwdriver under the edges by the screws and see if it stops when it does just pry a little and the door should pop off (there maybe 2 or more so keep going). After that look for screws holding the hd (there may not be any) after removing them slide it to the side with some room and it will just fall out. If there are any more questions please ask, sorry for the long delay I didn't know how to check these I will get back to you sooner now.

rjsymmes has the most accurate solution. Start with a battery replacement. Next course of action is to use a Bootable Media Source (Windows Disk or Recovery Disk) to see if the laptop responds and can have the Start Up repaired. If a Boot Media fails, then examine RAM, Hard Drive removal, then boot. Last resort Motherboard.
lemme ask you few questions first ---
1 when you boot up the computer does it responds then ?
2 if yes then whats the first thing you do that makes the windows not responding
and see I guess your PC has malicious applications in it that are making it not to respond
i recommend you trying [Malware bytes antivirus ] and scanning the whole of your computer with it
and yeah, if your PC doesn't respond at all then using other pc download a live bootable os named DR web live (for a quick intro its a 300-400mb os) and further using a bootable live usb created by the os insert into your PC suffering from problem and while the pc is starting look for boot menu button (its usuallly F10 or F8) something
and boot via the USB drive . and scan your operating system .
and if the problem still persist then i recommend for a new install of windows .. and make sure you make a backup before any major changes
Hope your problem gets solved quickly .. but if any problem still comes reply to me
You have downloaded a program that has a malware and this virus has made changes to your system OS. Now the best thing to do is to remove the downloaded file, if you are not able to do this the OS must be reinstalled.
If the PC is responding then clean up all the internet history, browsing and cookies by choosing tools, internet options. Also try and restore the PC to an earlier date.
The button seem to be interchanged with another. Did it respond differently earlier? After what did it start responding this way? If it is a new keyboard, then take it back for a replacement if it has a warranty, or to an expert around you to put it at the right place.

Press (on your keyboard) Ctrl + Alt + Delete at the same time and the task manager should come up. If you have windows vista then select task manager when given a list of options.
--> Go to the Tab that says "Processes" --> Look for the name "YahooMessenger.exe" on the left hand side. and click it to highlight it. --> Click "End Process" on the bottom right hand side. --> Its going to ask do you want to end process. Just say yes. Or it might hesitate for a minute and say the task is not responding. Simply hit "End" --> Once you no longer see "YahooMessenger" in the list, double the yahoo messenger icon to bring it back up.
If this still does not work your going to have to unistall and re-install the program.
Driver could be corrupt. Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
