I would NOT recomment upgrading anything other than RAM and Hard drives on a laptop. It's very expensive, and can't always be done. If you want a gaming computer I'd recommend a desktop computer, as you will get a lot more "umph" for a lot less buck.

Same goes for upgrades. It's easy and fairly cheap (unless you want to have the absolute top knotch parts all the time) with a desktop because so many can use the same parts. Lots of laptops have "their own kind" of parts, which makes them expensive.

Keep the laptop for portability whenever you need your computer with you.

I have a IBM thinkpad R50e for the last 6 years. It is not reading any CD or DVD, but says the device is working properly. Pl. help me.


I think it has failed.
Go to Control Panel...System... Device Manager... and locate CD or DVD Roms and UNINSTALL it. Then Reboot and it will automatically locate the CD / DVD Rom. You will have to acknowledge several screens wit naext and tes ect.

If it does not work, it's really easy to buy and replace.

Memory upgrade


Hi,

What do you mean by you cant get it to stay in place.

Usually you put it in at a 45 degree angle and press gently until it goes in no more, then you lower the chip until it clicks in on the board.

Hope this helps.
