RAM chip is bad

I took my computer to Pennsylvania College of technology. They ran a diagnostic test on it today. They just called me back and identified the problem through the diagnostic test as the RAM chip number DDR2PC5400. My computer still is under warranty.

Refer to your warranty for contact info, and if memory is covered. If so, tell them you had a professional diagnostic done, and see if they'll send you another memory chip. If not, then you will need to get the chip specs, and replace the chip yourself.

I am getting memory read/write error. Try to reseat the ram.


If reseating the ram does not work, there may be an issue with the ram installed. Did you upgrade the ram yourself? You may have the wrong type of ram installed.
If you have the correct ram installed, then you should run diagnostics on the ram to be sure it is functioning correctly.
Download Dell diagnostics for your system from Dell at the following website:
http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?os=WW1&catid=-1&dateid=-1&impid=-1&osl=EN&typeid=-1&formatid=-1&servicetag=&SystemID=INS_PNT_PM_1525&hidos=WLH&hidlang=en&TabIndex=&scanSupported=False&scanConsent=False
Click on the diagnostics tab and then choose "Download".
Reboot the computer and press the F12 key when the Dell screen appears. This will prompt the boot menu, use the arrow keys to select "Dell Diagnostics" and press enter. Press Tab until "Test System" is highlighted and press enter. This will run a set of diagnostics on your hardware to test all of it and determine what is functioning correctly and what is not.
If your RAM does not pass the tests, then you must replace the faulty ram. If your computer is still under warranty you should give Dell a call and have them do a service call on your computer. Telling them the results of the diagnostics test will very much speed up this process.
Best of luck!

As soon as the power supply was connected and switched on, the motherboard would power up and the fans would spin.. all hard drives/optical drives etc would turn on. But there was no post, or beeps, just a...


Sounds like you have a short in your display plug or the display itself.You also should try different or new ram sticks to eliminate ram as the cause.Try an external monitor also to see if there is any video showing.Technicians seem to always say the motherboard is bad to get the most money when the motherboard most of the time isn't bad its whats connected to it(ram,display,cd/dvd drives etc.

Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405 Memory upgrade problem


This usually happens when the laptop is not able to take more then a certain amount of memory, as the system BIOS does not support higher. By saying ACPI as the blue screen, that tells me that the power subsystem does not 'like' having more then 512MB of RAM. I am 95% sure this is your BIOS because of that information. Check and see if you can find a BIOS upgrade for your computer model, and that might fix the issue, if an update is available.

Worked fine yesterday, today zilch !!


One computer I fixed had its internal power regulation confused. With the AC adapter plugged in, holding the power switch down for twelve seconds, then pressing it again, switched it back on. This sort of problem can come from a variety of causes, though. There is an internal power distribution chip which could have received a static electric shock or power surge and gotten cooked. The RAM could have gone bad. The socket where the adapter plugs into the computer could have been cracked loose. Check the power switch and then RAM first, and write more if that doesn't fix it.

Memory Problem


Sounds like the memory chip is either the wrong frequency or it's bad. The frequency or type of memory for your machine is PC4200 or 533mhz, make sure the new chip is a PC4200 chip. If it is, then the chip may be bad. They are very static sensitive, and I've had a few bad chips straight out of the box. I've also ran into a couple of chips that were marked wrong and not the frequency on the label. This is definitely an issue with the memory chip and not your machine.
