Depending on your pc, on some pc's the side panel will come off with your motherboard. You should then be able to get to your memory. on others the side panel will come off and then you can unscrew the cd, dvd (screws on both sides of pc)and push them out(forward, unplug the power line and ide connections).

My macbook has a grey screen with a file and question mark

This means it can't find the operating system. Try taking RAM chips out and re-inserting firmly. Also, make sure you got the right kind of RAM chips in the two slots as Macs are picky. Also, make sure you got more RAM memory than you need so the Mac will run super fast. If none of these RAM tricks help, then re-install the operating system by doing an archive and install so you can retain your data. Alternatively, you can take the hard drive out and insert it into an external drive case, then install a new hard drive into the laptop, and do a clean install. Then you can extract the data from the old external hard drive.

It has freezd, it does not start

Remove and re-insert the RAM chips. Nothing? Replace the RAM chips with new higher memory RAM chips. Nothing? Replace the hard drive and re-install the OS. Nothing? Repair or replace the logic board.

Windows xp instalation stpos givibg a blue screen in aspire m5640 desktop

Windows Xp installtion give Blue Screen of Death when XP tries to installed devices driver during installation or when the cd is corruptted and cannot be read in graphical mode installation or when the hard drive is corrupted with Bad sector.

Get a new windows XP CD and configure your system BIOS to default setting ( load optimal settings) and configured for IDE drive configuration to compatible mode or disable mode if you are using SATA hard drive.

If problem still occured, get "Bad sector recovery pro" and try to repair the hard disk.If the bad sector are unrecoverable then change the hard drive.

Sometimes, faulty RAM also give blue screen too. Check your RAM too.

I get a 3sec beep everytime the pc tries to boot from the hd, the actual hard drive is fine, we know this as we have connected to another pc, any suggestions ?

Hello

The beep code you are getting has nothing to do with your HDD, it is actually a fault with the ram chip(s) in your computer.

If you have 2 or more ram chips installed, take out all the ram and install the one by one. Doing this you can find out which ram chip is faulty. If you only have one chip installed, take it out and test in in another computer before buying a new chip.

This is how the ram module looks like in general:06931a6.jpg


Hope this can help

Kind regards

New ram not speedy

well, the lowest speed of those rams will be effective for all rams. If you install same sized ram on 1st and the 3rd port, it should be run on dual channel mode and will be fastest possible. please try this if you have 4 ports.

Windows XP installation error

i have had the same problem when the hard drive was about to die or the ram is faulty

take ram out and clean gold edges with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser,
insert ram, if you have more than one chip try one at a time as one may be failing, ie (a bad spot on the chip and only stops the install when it gets to that location on the ram chip)

when you are running the install ,windows will ask you if you want to use the partitions on the drive
,say no and delete select partition ,this will format the hard drive and set a new one up,if the drive has problems it should show up then.

good luck ,and let me know how you go

Emachines 1900+ gets power to the monitor and computer but wont boot

There could be a number of causes. Do you hear any beeps when the computer starts up? Try seating all the chips in the motherboard. That means, apply pressure to each individual chip on the motherboard with your finger or thumb. The goal is to make sure each chip is securely attached to the board. Sometimes, heat or new h/w installs partially "pop" some of the chips out of the motherboard - causing the circuitry to be disconnected...
