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.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Very Carefully! The answer is to go to the web Site directly. Go to support/Drivers/manuals. Download the service manual from Lenovo and follow the directions from there. Be careful and do not break any tabs, wires, or connecting points along the way. If you are not mechanically enclined; I suggest you have a technician do that or else you wasted your money for a screen.
this is all i could think off just to help you out in till you can get it fixed.
I don't have a permanent fix, but one thing that works is folding up a small piece of paper and holding it over the memory card while closing the cover so that the cover pushes on the paper which holds the memory card in place automatically when the cover is closed. You just have to experiment to get the folded paper the right size and thickness. Again, its not a fix, but it has worked for me.
I shone a really bright light into the SD slot and sure enough, behind the gold springs at the bottom of the card slot, was a tiny black sliver of plastic that moved slightly when I tipped the camera. About 3mm long.
I removed the camera battery. Then I got a big long sewing needle, and with some very gentle manouvering, so as not to scratch anything inside the camera's SD slot, it fell out just when I was about to give up.
After I'd got the plastic sliver out, I trimmed the splintered edge of the SD card and put it back in
this is not to say it will work for you but give it a try but this will be at your own risk.
make sure the file which is you trying to open is not corrupted .create a new file and save it and try to open it .if still it gives the same error then kindly uninstall and reinstall the Microsoft office software. Hope this helps. Please rate my response. Thanks. Have a good day.
Hi Beautiful, The freezing problem is usually caused by bad memory modules on your laptop, Have it look up by a tech, and clean the contacts on your memory modules, give him instructions to clean the contacts with an eraser and brush the memory slot terminals with a clean paint brush. IF still the problem persists, clean the memory module contacts with a very fine sand paper, around no. 600. If the problem persists again, reinstall your VISTA. call your friend, if they have copies of your softwares.
ok this is what you have to do,,,,rescan your computer for viruses.., download ccleaner, spyboot search and destroy, atf cleaner...restart your computer hit f8 to go to safe mod go to safe mode rerun all this programs in safe mod, clena everything what is bad ( it will be highlated) run disk defragment, restart your computer and let it boot normaly... it should run faster, if you can go to safe mod do all this in normal mode, after all of that got to run and type msconfig it will show you on startup tab what programs are loaded on startupo of win xo uncehc those that you don't want or those that are suspicious to you.... and post me back if you ancourted any problems ....
Are you talking about the memory sticks inside the computer?
If so, then yes. If you have DDR memory, it will work in most computers that use DDR memory. It's best not to mix memory, so you'd want your friends to completely remove their old stuff first.
When you compare your RAM to theirs, match up the length and where the notches are along the gold contacts of the memory sticks. If they match perfectly, then you're good to go!
From oldest to newest, we have these kinds of memory
Brand new PC's are using 2 and 3 (2 being the most common) Most PC's are just plain DDR because that used to be the most common. Other than this, there are other differences in memory, but they moreoften don't make a difference. =-]
