Hi, Before putting in new ram, try checking the old one first. Most laptops memory are underneath a lid/cover at the bottom of the unit. With the bottom side up, remove the memory panel cover and unsnap the memory. It is held on each side by a clip/lock that you have to move slightly away from the memory thus freeing it and it will snap partway up. You can then remove, clean the little gold terminals and insert back. Reboot and see if this solves your problem. If not, boot as if everything is OK even with out a display. Try: 1. connect an external monitor - if there is display then it is your LCD display panel at fault; 2. shine a small flashlight on the display panel side and see if you can see semblance of your desktop, if yes then it is your backlight/inverter at fault; 3. If even with an external monitor or with the flashlight or as it is, none of the keyboard indicators function (number lock, caps lock etc) functions, then it is your motherboard/video engine at fault. Off hand, the best bet would probably be the memory. Post back how things are or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

    Hi again,

    If your unit is a desktop and not a laptop, everything still hold except instead of underneath/bottom it should be inside the casing; instead of external monitor, replace you monitor; disregard #s 2 & 3.

I've had this happen before, the RAM module you just put in is defective. Put the old one back in and see if it works. If so, take the RAM back and get a new one.

Hello i bought some pc2100 ddr ram 512 mb for my dell 2350 but when put the ram in it beeps and wont boot up it came with 256mb ddr sdram can anyone tell me if this is the right ram and if so why wont it...

The best thing to do when it comes to computer ram, and replacing it, is to take the stock (the working ram that came with the PC) ram out and take it with you to a local computer store to ensure that you're getting the right kind of ram.

Your PC can be VERY picky when it comes to computer memory, so don't guess what's right for it.

Hope this helps. :)

Added RAM to E210882

This common.

You either added the wrong size or type of RAM (verify this)


You need to take it out (power down first)

reboot... wait for the beeps to go away

Power off

Place the ram back in again... be sure it is in the right channel

If you have 4 slots... one stick per set of slots.

Constant beeping when powered up, no display

If the beeping is constant, check your keyboard for any keys that are stuck in the depressed position.

My computer stop suddenly with a beep sound

What kind of beep sound? A long solid beep, or continuous single beeps? Power off the computer and when you turn it on if it produces endless single beeps, the problem can point to your RAM. If you have more than one stick of RAM, take them all out and put in each one at a time in the first RAM slot. This will determine if only one of the sticks of RAM is faulty if you only get the beeping with one of the sticks.

If you can, please tell me what kind of beeping did you get.

ACER Aspire- beeping sound - 6seconds when I power machine on

The beeps are telling you there is a hardware failure (POST). The number and length of beeps will give a better indication as to what has failed. Write back with that info and someone on this web site will interpret this for you.

Hello every 1 d845hv

If it is only since removing the ram and re-inserting it that there is no display, try removing the ram again and re-inserting them 1 at a time then switching on to see if there is any display. Make sure the ram is firmly in place in its socket before switching on. Also you do not mention if there are any beeps coming from the internal speaker when switching on. These beeps sound different for different problems and the way it beeps can tell you where the problem lies.
