Hello,

Your laptop is booting to a Windows Desktop, so there is no hardware fault or Ram isssue. You may have a lack of free space on C:, but I would suggest the following:

Shut off your laptop if its not off already. Restart after a moment and press F8 while booting, this should get you a startup menu for using Safe Mode. Select Safe Mode and then your presented with an OS choice, usually your windows installation is already highlighted. If it is hit enter, if it isn't use the up/down arrow keys to highlight it and tehn hit enter.

Once you reach a desktop environment you are warned that you are entering Safe Mode, acknowledge that notification, you will proceed into Safe Mode dektop. Does your mouse do what you want? When you press the Windows Logo key on your keyboard does the start menu pop up?

If so, let us know with a reply using the comment box below. We can take some measures to get your problem taken care of shortly.

Regards,
Worldvet

Toshiba satellite l505D-s5983 Keeps freezing and going unresponsive


This sounds like ram memory issue, remove one stick of ram and power up, no change, remove second piece and replace the first, if this works the memory stick in your hand is defective.

7 beep error message for dell inspiron mini 1018


For the Dell Inspiron Mini 1012 Netbook, 7 beeps indicates bad memory (system RAM). The memory will need to be replaced.
The RAM can be replaced using a small Phillips screwdriver and removing the back-plate on the bottom of the laptop. When you see the memory (sticks around 3 inches long), pull those out and put new ones in. Make sure it's the correct DDR2 memory.
Good luck!

I can't locate were you install the memory modules


You can purchase 1GB ram sticks for them...need to shop around.

Access the ram slots by switching laptop off / remove battery / depress on / off switch several X to de-enrgise system. Turn laptop upside down and remove one of the small panels...be carefull you do not lose screws. Very carefully unclip ram stick / lift up and out.

Asus p4s800 beep codes. I get one long beep. I


The one long beep, this has something to do with the video card.
Can't really tell without the BIOS you are using !
Anyway, try removing the card and replace it. ( with anything, just to check. )
This is a good board, I have a ASUS P4C800 and you can't beet it.
P.S. Make sure all your memory is the same freq. and clock speed.
Good luck.

No post no video Beeps once every sec. The first few times it boot I had video. Then lost video now I have it back. it will run all day when in the bios. But outside the bios trying to load Windows XP home...


Hi...

Actually the problem is the memory witch is beeping every seconds during turning the laptop on. Check your memory stick, remove the memory stick, clean from dust. Reinsert it try to use the other memory slot. If the problem is still occurs the memory stick is bad or faulty already. You need to replace the memory stick.

Good luck!

Thanks for using fixya

Sony Handycam Dig 8 doesn't recognize tape when trying to record


If it has memory stick, Make sure your memory stick is in. Your memory stick is full. Delete the unwanted pictures from the memory stick or use a differnt biger memory stick.

I looked in the manual. It seems your camcorder does not have a slot for memory stick. But you may still save pictures on the tape. Here is the link to download the manual

http://www.docs.sony.com/release/DCRTRV140.pdf

Please read Page 40 "recording picture on the tape".

GOOD LUCK !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
