No beeps on start up

By lonniec1143 ·
I have a Toshiba lap top computer. RAM was recently added. I was getting the blue screen, so I tried to eliminate the new RAM and put in the old. Now the computer will not boot up, and I do not hear any beeps on start up. I tried to pull all RAM from the computer and still no beeps, I suspect the Mother board is shot. Can there be another problem that I over looked.

Did you access the BIOS after fitting the new RAM ?...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to No beeps on start up

Was the RAM recognised in the BIOS?

Did you then SAVE and EXIT from it?

Rather than describing the situation as "..I was getting the blue screen.." - it would help us if you could say what the message WAS on the blue screen.

No I did not save BIOS

The BIOS did not see the new RAM, that is why I decided to take the new RAM out. The blue screan was Too fast, I did notice something about memory. If BIOS does bot see the RAM how can you get it to see it?

if the BIOS doesnot see the RAM then there could be two reason: firstly the RAM might not be inserted properly to the RAM slot secondly, the RAM might be corrupted or it might not be the right one for your laptop. You can do 1 thing to isolate the issue i.e put the new RAM to the slot where you have put the old RAM and see if it is being detected by the system.. It could be anything a fault SLOT.

Thank you for your reply
I tried diferent cominations of ram in both slots. The computer does not boot up. either with disk or on its own. there is nothing on the screen. I tried another monitor and still nothing. I tried with no RAM and there is still no beeps. I think the Mother Board is dead. Is there something else I can try?
