Having problems with your Compaq Evo Notebook N150 Notebook ?

Beeping on start up

\015 Removed and cleaned ram card but made no differance ,when checking in system it only shows 120mb of ram not 128mb ,If external ram removed system shows 56mb and not 64mb as expected so presume problem is on mother board, Is it possible to change the mother board ram and how.\015

Answers :

Your motherboard has 64Mb built-in RAM and the video card needs some video RAM and has grabbed 8Mb of RAM which leaves the system with 56Mb of RAM. When you insert a 64Mb RAM module you have a total of 128Mb of which the video has grabbed 8Mb which leaves the system with 120Mb.
\015\012You can't change stop the video card from grabbing 8Mb of RAM, the RAM is essential for the video to work.
\015\012You can upgrade the RAM by removing the 64Mb RAM module and insert a 128Mb or 256Mb RAM module. You may even be able to insert a 512Mb RAM module if the motherboard will accept it, you need to check the specification of your laptop to see the maximum amount of RAM the laptop can handle.
