Just bought an Evesham A410 Voyager which comes with the AMD Turion MT34 cpu
and the ATI mobile X700 graphics card. I would like to play the occasional
game of Counter Strike Source when I'm working away but have found it jumpy
when I've played. I've checked all settings etc and the system hould be up
to a game - I'm guessing its the 512mb of ram. I'm new to laptops etc and
need some advice on ram - Do they use pc3200 ddr (SODimm)? Is my notebook
capable of running dual channel? what ram do I buy?
Thanks in advance.

I purchased a refurbished T30 off of an auction site, and I've noticed
lately that it has been very noisy. It started about 6 months about I
bought it. I am trying to figure out if it is in fact a fan that is
acting up or if it is the hard drive. Any suggestions on what I can do
to determine which piece of hardware is annoying me? Just a side note,
I have the indexing service disabled and it will make the noise while
there is no activity on the system.
One last thing, if it is in fact a fan, how hard would it be to change
it out? I have downloaded the hardware maintenance manual for ...old laptop, help please

I've posted this before, but I had not observed the problem as much as now.
The problem has rendered the laptop completely useless.
It is a Presario 2700 series. It started shutting down unexpectedly. The
shutdowns seemed to be preceeded by the hard drive and cpu fan spinning at
very high rates. Soon it got to where it would not boot. I would get the
boot screen, then it would BSOD and recycle. Anytime I turn it on the fan
and hard drive start spinning full speed. The only time I got it to boot
all the way to Windows the hard drive and fan were not spinning. There

...laptop with bad memory
Go a Toshiba A65 Satellite. It's got internal memory and, when you flip it
over and remove a plastic plate access to add additional memory.
I assume the "internal" ram is hard to access and difficult to replace(?)
The memory seems bad. Since there's no added ram I assume it's the
"internal" 256meg of ram that's bad.
The system is completely non-bootable from HD or a repair CD. So from a USB
floppy drive I ran some self-booting RAM testers - and the ram tests bad
from start to finish.
I've looked at the bios - it seems OK but I'm not sure -...Problem with starting up laptop, please help!

I recently bought a secondhand laptop (Hewlett Packard Omnibook 1200). I had
to install the operating system which I've done (Windows 98). Everything is
fine but. The screen is stuck at 640x480 and 16 colours! What I want to know
is, is this a driver problem or a hardware problem? If if is a hardware
problem, can it be upgraded and resolved?
Any help would be really appreciated. I'm a complete novice with laptops and
this is really bugging me. I'm used to a 800x600 and 32 bit True Colour.
Sounds like you need a video driver.
