Hello ; I've received the 1-3-3-1 beep code on boot-up failure.
< DIMM / main board >
After several on-off tries - it did boot up OK.
I searched and downloaded the Hardware Maintenance Manual.
I have very limited experience with laptop repairs ; more comfortable
with old tower computers.
Any experience or thoughts on this ?
I was contemplating remove & re-install DIMM card(s) ..
- seems like a fairly easy process as per the manual ?
Any thoughts on causes - heat/fan issues ?
< problem occurred on first boot after being off all night >
The laptop was $ 140. + a battery 2 1/2 years ago
so I won't be spending much money to fix it.
P8400 @ 2.26 3 gigs RAM
Thanks ; John T.
