A close friend was kind enough to give me his " Good Used ", Net Vista 6833 Mod. 25U.
Well when we were unpacking it from it's original Box, proper Sterifoam and all, I heard something bang around inside the Tower. When I removed the cover I found 2 of 4 Memory Cards were laying on the Mother Board..The 2 cards seem to be " Real " memory. I have since learned that IBM's sometimes have Blank Cards with the proper amount of pins to ensure that all the memory slots are full. I have 2 cards that areobviously 128 MG's each. 1 is marked NEC Japan. 128MG/8d nonECC 2nd is a " Kingston" KTC7337/128 ,575868 CE. The other 2 are half the hieght of the (I think) "Real Memory ", And using my magnifiying glass it looks like it says "ASU016 " then beneath these letters and numbers it reads "ACM R1 00 " . Made in Taiwan.
Now I have followed the direction to the letter, when I could, many of the instructions were very erronious and unclear, sometimes they even contradicted themselves a paragraph later. Anyway most of the sites were of the same opinion that I open it up and remove everything including the Battery (which Idon't want to do) and make sure that every connection and the Adapter Card, Ethernet Card, Sound card...anyway you get the picture. I agree the Tower took a bit of a beating in the bac of Pete's enclosed Pick up, but this seems extreme to me. I have removed the Power Box (still Hooked up, removed all the cards to give myself lots of working room to get in ther and ensure all the connections are tight and secure. However I'm worried about taking out the CD Rom, Hard Drive the A drive etc.. I really would just like to put it back together and see how it goes. My confusion here is thzat it said in one place to install 1 of the Memory Cards to ensure it was working OK. Then try the other to test it as well. But where I'm really confused id tthat I've read that it won't work unless all the memory slot are filled with a card. Also the cards must be installed in the correct slots or it won't work either..I'm pulling my hair out here ,someone please tell me what to do. Mike .Rank me as an amature with a bit of knowledge, never worked on an IBM before.
Re: Moved Computer, 150 miles and Memory fell out.
I'm not an expert, but I had the same problem and resolved it finally. The beeps mean the memory cards are either in wrong or the wrong cards. Should run with just one card, but might be very slow. Try different configurations and see if you can one to work. If the card is wrong, it just won't start, shouldn't harm anything.

if the beep tones are 1 - 1 - 3 - 1 then you have a RAM error. It may be something as simple as a loose module. If all are properly seated and clamped in (you must look closely) then remove them one by one remembering which mod came from which slot. Each time you remove one try to start the PC If you remove one and it starts up then the one you removed is the bad module. You then need to have the module tested to see if it is good (the slot may be bad instead). You don't want to put a good RAM mod in a bad slot and take a chance of ruining it. You can however take the original and try putting it back in the slot to see if the computer will now read it.
To give you any further instruction I would need more information. Hope this helps
When a restore disc won't do, here's what to do. Find someone with a retail OEM Vista Disc of the same version of your machine. You should have a COA sticker on your PC with a valid Vista License #.
Boot up the Vista disc, run setup, if it asks for the serial give it. If it gives you problems, call Microsoft and tell them you don't know where the "blank" disc you got came from but you have a valid COA sticker and you want them to give you a Validation code RIGHT NOW. They'll do that.
After you have Vista running, go to your machines support site on the web and download the drivers for your OS to the desktop in a new folder you made for them and install them.
You may have to download the LAN driver on a memory stick on a friends puter to load on yours to get you connected to the net to download the rest.
Many of the "crackers" contain trojans, keyloggers, viruses and all kinds of malware. I'd do a complete scan of your system with AVG or Avira anti virus, Malwarebytes and Super antiSpyware removers. All are free downloads from the net.If the "cracker" destroyed too many system files, you might be reloading your operating system from scratch. Don't EVER run a PC without anti virus software and a good firewall. Live and learn!! BTW, there are free video converter programs that work well. DVD Flick, Divx to DVD, DVD Decrypter, DVD Fab Decrypter. No need to try and crack legit programs.
You need to download the vista 64 bit drivers/software for this to work properly. You should be able to find them on the HP website under the support section for your product. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
chances are you may need to get a driver for this device.. and depending how old the device is and how streamline it is.. you may or may net get the driver... google the name of the webcam and add the words "vista driver" to see if a driver is avaliable online or you may want to try the webcam manufacturer website to see if they have made the driver avaliable on their website. I found the driver for vista for and old webcam for a customer checking on forums related to that webcam.
