Not able to start s10-3 Lenevo Laptop

I tried upgrading my RAM, and inserted the spare DDR3 2 GB ram into the memory slot of Lenevo S10-3 laptop, but unfortunaly after doing this my laptop is not booting up at all. I tried re-inserting the old memory but still the laptop is not starting up. Only the middle two led's glow i.e. the battery (charging) and wireless (second from right).


Can somebody guide me as what to do to make my laptop start again.

I took the laptop to the lenevo suppport who said that since my warranty has expired long ago, it will cost me more than $500 and also labour charges and tax extra, the cost of my laptop is $349, hence looking for some expert comments here.


Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi and welcome,

" tried re-inserting the old memory "

check or  re-seat of the former memory carefully again ...

be sure that you remove the battery and powerplug ... press start switch for 30 seconds .. plug in powerplug and try to start...
