Memory loss

So, my new computer only had 2GB. That wasn't enough so I googled what kind of memory to get, and bought it. Then I followed the tedious instructions to install -- one card goes under the keyboard and it was a royal pain.

Guess what? It Didn't Boot. Little flashy lights, we (with another computer!) googled about the flashy lights and the code is "RAM error". Right. So, first I tried to re-seat the cards, since one web page said it was tricky, and when that didn't work, I put back in the old cards. Trying hard to seat them well. Guess what? It Didn't Boot! Crap.

So I'm using Perry's old computer until I have a chance to take the brick to a computer fixit shop. Maybe they'll have better luck, hopefully with the new memory. It's been a few weeks since I actually received the new memory, I wonder if they'll take it back if it's the wrong kind? Hopefully the computer isn't really a brick.

Sigh.
