I have an Acer Aspire 6930 with 3 gig of ram. It will not start up. I have tried everything, battery, etc etc. I then removed a memory module, and it started right up! I put the chip that I removed back in, and took out the other. It started up again. I then put back the memory, and it started. This lasted for a while. Now, I have the same problem. If I remove and put the memory modules back in, it starts. Any ideas?

You might try testing the memory:

Memtest86+

You could have a bad connection with the memory, which works when you "clean" it by removing and re-installing the memory.

You could also try using contact cleaner to clean the contact, but make sure that ALL power is removed.

Have you tried running it for some time with only one memory module to ensure that it continues to work?
