    Can you please tell us which notebook model do you have exactly and what happen when you press power button?
    Don’t hold anything, just switch notebook on and describe what happen exactly?
    Which operating system is preinstalled on this Equium notebook?

    Hi

    Seems that your Equium cannot pass the POST (power on self test) properly.
    This can be related to different reasons: mostly its hardware related problem.
    For example: RAM or motherboard issues.

    I think you should test the RAM modules… it would be interesting to know if the notebook would pass the splash screen using one module only… test also every module in each slot…

    Hi davy_1

    The RAM modules are placed at the bottom of the unit. I think you should find detailed info in user manual.
    As I mentioned above: remove one module and try to power up the notebook using one module in one slot. Run this test for both modules in both slots.

    Of course this will not help you if motherboard is faulty or both RAM modules malfunctions…in such case the technicians should check the hardware using special tools.
