    Hi,
    I have a laptop with 128mb RAM and i wanted to upgrade this...so i took it out (the only ram chip there was in the machine at the time). Then i noticed there was a "do not remove" sticker at the back. Well i put it back and now the laptop doesn't even seem to start up. There may be some activity, i'm not sure, but the screen definitely shows nothing and it does not switch on.

    Thanks for any help!!
    Dom

    Try reseating the ram module. Sounds like you did not get it all the way back in. Taking it out should not have caused any problems.

    I tried that already, its seated in properly. Could it be that the RAM module is faulty now? I was handling it whilst checking the information on it.
    Thanks
