When I start up the laptop, there's a black screen and 2 ongoing beeps...it sounds like it is powering up but all it continues to do is beep...help!
Welcome to the Community. If its 2 beeps its means either the RAM is not detected or the memory or the memory slot has failed. I suggest you to reseat ( remove it and put it back inside ) your memory first, below is the link for help. If that does not help, you will need to try one memory at a time on a slot, and try swapping them vis a versa. This will tell you if its an issue with just one memory, or a problem with the slot.
Hope this helps.
