Question about Computers & Internet
Hi all, I have a Dell inspiron 8100. 256 MB of Ram. 1ghz processor. The problem is that it won't turn on AT ALL. I have tried all of the other possible answers online. Only one worked, but only for a day or two... The problem is that when i press the power button, the light turns on for about 4 seconds then turns back off. I have switched the ram in the slots. (Put each one in the others spot) and it worked for about a day. Then it started doing the light thing again. I switched the ram again, and it didnt work this time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
When switching the memory, did you try one chip at a time, or have you always had both in the machine? The reason I ask is that if one of the chips is bad or going bad, and you've always had both chips in, then by switching them you fooled the machine temporarily. Also, try removing the battery, and starting on AC only, Dell batteries are notorious for causing a no start when getting worn out. Let me know on these.
