This weekend, I turn around from eating dinner to find my Evesham Technology laptop frozen. -So, I end up rebooting the thing, and get the error: "Keyboard not attached". -With no way to get past that, I try restarting again, only to be met with a long repeating bleep. I go out looking for a new computer. On returning, I take out the HDD, CDROM, and battery to peek inside (I always wanted to see what was inside my laptop, having opened up and modded my old desktops). I also open up the RAM compartment, and practice removing and replacing the RAM. so, after reseating the RAM, I press the on button, and to my surprise the thing starts back up again, as if nothing had happened. However, every now and then I will have the computer freeze, and on rebooting, get the long beep codes, which I can usually correct by reseating the RAM (sometimes I need to reseat it a few times before it works) I assume its a RAM problem, and will be running Memtest from my GRUB boot loader before I go to class, in the hope it will still be running when I get back. I've not had the keyboard error again, so I think that may be a one off, but I'm a little worried it might be a motherboard problem. Of course, being in Japan, the costs for sending my laptop back to Evesham for repairs would be abominable, and frankly I'd rather spend the money on a new laptop. However, I should be able to get new RAM fitted over here, if needed. If anyone can give me any advice, I would appreciate it greatly.
