    I have an old Toshiba Satellite 2435-S255 and it's currently not turning on. It's giving me some beep codes but I cant find out who the manufacturer of the BIOS is or the beep codes for this laptop. The beep code is as follows.. 1-3-3-1.

    The only bios I can find with that sequence is a Phoenix bios. Check the link below. I'm not sure what the error refers to however, "28 Autosize DRAM". Guess I would try one stick of memory at a time and see if it starts and/or try different memory.

    Ah, thank you. I checked out the RAM sticks and one of them weren't seated correctly. I took it out and placed it back in and now it works just fine.

    Cool! Wish they were all that easy, eh?
