Three Beeps

Note to self: don't open the computer. It's not worth it.

I was going to upgrade my RAM from 512 mb to 1 gig on my laptop, aka my main writing computer. The new RAM didn't quite fit (was probably the wrong type) so I snapped the old RAM back in and....

Computer didn't boot up. Damn it.

Took out the ram, put it back in. Nope, still no boot. Just three beeps.

There's a computer repair shop in my wee village of 752 people, and it was still open, so I figured I might as well get it over with and bring it in and see if it was even salvageable.

Great news. I just put the ram back in wrong. He only charged me $10 for his time and fixed it on the spot.

Yay! I didn't kill it!
