Go through the steps for Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

warning   Warning
Some of the steps require that you open up your system, so before doing any of the re-seating and connection checking steps, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: Some steps in that tutorial involve removing the system case or system panels and can void your warranty!!!

The steps specifically related to the warning are steps 8, 10, and 11.

Just let us know if you find anything as you troubleshoot. :)

Holler if you need help with any of the steps. Obviously, you should skip steps 8, 10, and 11.

Let us know if any hardware changes have been made in the past to the laptop, as well. Memory upgrades in particular. If you are unsure:
  • Download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot.
