R61e beeps on start up

2010-06-17, 6:06 AM

My R61e gives a series of beeps. 1 beep, 3 beeps, 4 beeps, 3 beeps when I press the power button and it will not boot up.  Any ideas what is wrong and how do I fix it?

1-3-4-3 - RAM Failure on data bits xxxx of low byte of memory bus

 

so try to reseat the ram, or take out one of the ram modules. If you have a friend with similar ram, you may want to swap it in and have a look.
