first slot is working but when i remove all the ram and put the ram only in the second slot and switch on the laptop get 2 beep sound and laptop doesnt start.

it cant be extended once expired i think

I think in laptops when you have only one RAM it must be in the first slot or the laptop won't start. I read that in a manual.

But when I put both the RAM's 2 x 4gb and start the laptop it shows total 4 GB ram
If the problem is in the motherboard and if it needs to be replaced should i get it replaced or continue using it as it is may be with 1x8 GB ram in one slot?


Edit
Its working now, after cleaning the slot with a brush. Thanks for the replies

Can anyone tell why Black Ops 2 doesn't get scaled down when running at lower resolution. It doesn't happen with Black Ops 1 when i run black ops 1 in lower resolution ie;1200 x 720 the picture scales down you see black bars on the sides but when I run Black ops 2 at lower resolution the pictures doesn't scales down it stretches to fit the screen.

Currently downloading, but from 13.1, there should be heck of a difference, i am on 14.1beta currently, and have read that 5-7% of difference might be there :-?

Ohh how to install this driver? Should I install Intel first or something or directly after uninstall of leshcat

haven't used leshcat drivers myself, i think they come with both intel and amd packages, so keep the intel one and remove amd completely (use driver fusion if required), and then install these, intel one's are necessary to install these, as this is an Enduro card.. :)

Okay so I am having an issue with the 15r special edition. A thin horizontal line is flashing at the bottom of my screen every 1-2 seconds. Its about 1 mm in height. Now I realize its the top half of the window I am in. I can see the outline of the "minimize,restore,close" buttons.
Now I thought the gpu was going bad,so I hooked up the laptop to my desktop display. But the issue is not present there. I also ran 3d mark 11. No problems.
So now I am inclined to think that it is an issue with the lcd screen or the connectors.

Can anyone here help me with this? And also, how much does a new lcd screen cost for this laptop?

To dell it costs around Rs.2200, can't say how much they sell it for.
When I had initially bought the laptop the screen had an issue. When they replaced the screen the service document included the price to be around Rs.2200.

p.s. that was around 2 years ago.

Hmm :\ Well I don't have that kind of money right at this moment. Lets see if it worsens or not. The issue isn't with drivers or the gpu since the output is fine when I connect external monitor.

[MENTION=184724]kkn13[/MENTION] My wear level is at 14%. Calibrate your battery mate.
