    Yes, you can do that.

    I don't know how reliable the memory check is, but it rather sounds like a bad news.... And do we know if it used to pass the test, before you manipulated that RAM?
    I meant a medium check though. ... but I'm not 100% that it is an option. (don't have a live CD here).

    Well, there's a Check Installation device (something like that) on the list of options. I've tried to select that. It stopped on the OpenSUSE login screen so I've tried pressing different keys and finally, ESC key and I see several text in a black background saying that it passed the test with a value of 100%.

    I cannot say exactly what it contains since I forgot already (even if I have performed it just a while ago).

    Yes, I see, So it can offer some useful details,
    It would be nice if a windows user who uses the English language in windows decided to help (@flymail perhaps?)
    This is what I was requesting, If a situation does not allow the OP to use fdisk, How do we get info useful info from windows,
    And this is the problem you are working on.

    Thanks

    Are you able to boot from live CD and run this test on anohter computer, then on your laptop again. Is it different?

    I didn't want to contribute to further digression from this thread so I posted a new thread. I posted it under this subforum rather than how-to because I was scared-off by the READ-ONLY sign!

    Does it mean that what you described earlier applies to both your computers:

    ?

    If it's the case, the RAM in your laptop is probably OK - and this test is not reliable, as I said before.

    What exactly doesn't work yet? Or what are you afraid is going to fail?

    Well, I don't want my laptop to be unable to boot again, just like what happened last time since I'll be needing this until Wednesday.

    Hi guuvey,

    Glad to know your laptop is booting again! Refer to my post at #236, the more I read the exchanges the more I am convinced that you have/had multiple problems i.e. both hardware and software. It appears that at some point in all that opening and closing the laptop to access the internals, the hardware problem (some connector seating) has got resolved. But avoid bumping the laptop around!!

    "Dell" has a software pack "PC Check up" to check the hardware. I am sure "Acer" would have a similar package downloadable from their support site. Use that to check the hardware.

    As far as software is concerned, there are a lot of more knowledgeable persons advising you on this thread. Just ignore the forays into side issues!
