Re: My m18x makes alarming sounds and have a black screen...

actually both side were in the link i posted i even stated becarefull removing the bezel around keyboard....  thing is ONLY try posting with 1 stick at a time if that dont remove that stick and try another ..... and so on   backside is simple removing keyboard is harder  and the link i posted does show pics on it the post further down ,  anyway if it dont post with all 4 stick one at a time try another ram slot ,  then other ram slot with one stick its possible ram slot is bad or cpu has shifted (doubtfull but happens a few times in my life so far)
