    How far does it get when it starts?
    Do you get the Windows startup screen or anything?
    Oh! and by the way... Welcome to T/S :D

    thanks for the reply by the way and the welcome to the site! :) I get to the desk top screen and then i go to click on an icon and the computer just shuts down. so is this just a spot to ask tech questions or is there a spot to get to know everyone other then the introductions spot? :)

    Hi melissa,
    did you add more ram to this computer? and is it different than the ram that was already installed? ie different speed,1sided-2sided, size of modules,density? etc. can you put your Motherboard specs and the specs of the ram modules up?
    is this a laptop or desktop?
