    Laptop will not boot almost always, no beep codes. Tech support says
    it's bad onboard memory. Does this make sense? How would I replace
    onboard memory (part of Motherboard?) The external memory slot is
    vacant.

    JW,

    As Ben would say: download and run MEMTEST-86 or MEMTEST-86+, the best
    and completely free memory diagnostics available. If MEMTEST shows even
    one error while running for a couple of hours, either the computer memory
    is defective or possibly there is a motherboard problem.
