    I have a Acer travelmate 4202Wlmi laptop. The laptop always crashes and makes a REALLY loud beep. I suspect it is the ram because the laptop had 512mb in the first place, and I upgraded to 1gb. If I have 1.5gb in the laptop it would just crash instantly, but now with the 512, it still crashes but takes a while. I tried going into BIOS (Phoenix) but there is a password and I don't know it. Any help??
