Now you have to save the picture as a jpeg so it will be small enough to attach.
Save it to your desktop or someplace you can find it.

Now instead of click Reply you have to click on Use Full Editor
After typing your reply then under the window where you type you will see Attach File. Right above that is the Browse button
Click that and then click on your picture. Then click Attach file
Scroll down and click Post or Reply which ever it is.

Go back to post 32 and start from there. That is where the ram talk started with HFCG.

OK since there is only one stick then taking it out and trying to boot the system is useless because all you will get is the memory error beep code.
You can try to test the memory by doing the following.


B. If you have only one RAM stick installed...
...run memtest...

1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
2. Unzip downloaded memtest86+-2.11.iso.zip file.
3. Inside, you'll find memtest86+-2.11.iso file.
4. Download, and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/
5. Insert blank CD into your CD drive.
6. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc
7. Click on Browse for a file... icon:

8. Locate memtest86+-2.11.iso file, and click Open button.
9. Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD:

10. Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run. You may have to change the boot sequence in your BIOS to make it work right.

To change Boot Sequence in your BIOS

Reboot the system and at the first post screen (where it is counting up memory) start tapping the DEL button
This will enter you into the Bios\Cmos area.
Find the Advanced area and click Enter
Look for Boot Sequence or Boot Options and highlight that click Enter
Now highlight the first drive and follow the directions on the bottom of the screen on how to modify it and change it to CDrom.
Change the second drive to the C or Main Drive
Once that is done then click F10 to Save and Exit
You will prompted to enter Y to verify Save and Exit. Click Y and the system will now reboot with the new settings.


The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:

It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.

This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.

The following image is the test results area:

The most important item here is the “errors” line. If you see ANY errors, even one, most likely, you have bad RAM.

If there is ONLY one stick you must have an empty slot as that computer has two ram slots, you will see the clips of the empty slot, either side of the exisitng stick.
On a laptop one stick of ram is always underneath the other stick
However it is quite possible as I said on my post regarding this when the ram issue was raised, that you do ONLY have the one stick.

Sorry with a laptop the drive only has one way to connect and the only issue is if it is seen in the bios or not.

Not necessarily. On my Dell laptop I had one under the cover easily accessible and the other one was under the keypad.

To continue on, we need to see how the hard drive is put in. The computer is not recognizing it so we need to work on that next.
rshaffer61 and Macboatmaster will be working on that next.
