I'm not sure if you are still having the problem with your system ore not, but if you are I'd like to help. Remove the hard drive, CD drive, battery and memory and try starting the system. What should happen is the caps lock and scroll lock lights shoud light up (num lock stays off) to indicate a memory problem (since the memory has been removed). If you get a different combination of lock lights when you try to power it on then either the processor or motherboard is the problem. If you get the memory error try lolita's suggestion: put in one piece of memory at a time to see if you still get the memory error (test each stick individually, once in each memory slot). If you still get the memory error with one stick, no matter which slot its in, that one needs to be replaced. If you get the error with both sticks on one slot, then it is the motherboard. If you are still in warranty, or are not sure if you are, I recommend contacting Dell support. Alternately, you can contact me and I will be more than happy to provide as much help as I can. I can be reached by email at [email protected] (with 'ATTN: Larry' in the subject to ensure it gets to me). Larry Dell Customer Advocate

Try to change the RAM and see if that's the problem. If your memory is faulty it won't start or it might start and then freeze. If your laptop has two memory modules, try only one at a time. Switch the sockets on the board that you try the memory in as well
