Try removing the RAM, one piece at a time, and try.

Which full version. please.

Removing ram.
Go to that link I sent you and look at the guide there for ram.- under the tab - document user manual

Turn the laptop upside down so that the hinges of the screen are away from you at the top.
From that edge the access panel to the memory is the smaller compartment lid to towards the centre of that edge.

CAUTION - disconnect the battery FIRST.
DO NOT TOUCH THE connections or the components on the ram, only the edges of the stick of ram.
CAREFULLY look at the ram and you will likely see two clips, one either side, holding in the ram.
If you ONLY have one stick of ram - obviously you cannot do as suggested.
You will see if you have two, that one lies under the other, you will see the edge of the underneath stick if you look carefully.

I saw that but thought that he may as well proceed with the ram, before checking to see if the drive is seen in BIOS.
