Having problems with your Gateway Solo 9500 Notebook ?

Problem booting I bought my two sons gateway 9500 laptops. One of them has developed a problem booting up. It frequently stops, beeps two short beeps and sits there. Sometimes it boots normally. Sometimes it runs for a while, then gives an error message that the video adaptor is not working properly and shuts down the high quality video, leaving only the vga screen. I've swapped the ram and power supply from the other laptop, I've removed the hard drive, dvd rom, ethernet card and floppy.

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012Any beep code from pheonix starting with two beeps relates to ram issues. If you have treid swapping the ram and it only gives the first 2 beeps then most likely the RAM controller on the north bridge or the data channels themselves are damaged on the motherboard.
\015\012
\015\012You can try running a single chip of ram in each slot at seperate attempts. If it is a data channel damaged this will bypass the problem although it will cripple the laptops performance. Either way, the only permanent and proper fix would be to replace the oBo which I doubt would be cost effective on this unit.

Trying to find out what needs to be replaced on my dead computer (I think it may have been lightning / power failures that caused the desktop to die). I have power, but no beeping and no start-up. Fans power up, but nothing on the screen. Not sure if it is a power supply problem or a Motherboard problem. How can I find out what easily (ie I don't have any meter devices to check power) what the problem is? Motherboard is an IBM, 2.8 Ghz, with 2 Gig Ram, and 40gb Hard Drive. Moth
