My PC was broke a while ago so I added the new HDD finally. A few days after adding it I got a few BSODs that I didn't know I should save, but there was a thing about Memory on it.
Anyway, it started to work for a little longer and I was just being hopeful that whatever happened was done. Nope. I tried to play BF3 yesterday and it just shutdown my PC.
Now, when I turn it on, I get a red light on the Mobo (I think I might've seen it during the first BSOD a week ago.) Everything appears to be running inside the case. As I don't want to disturb anything further without guidance, I have yet to open the case to check connections.
I think my processor is not reading all 16gb, or any at all since this crash, of my RAM. How do I go about fixing this? Are there tests I can do to see if the processor is dead?
Any and and all help is much appreciated. Thanks!
EDIT: The red light appears to be on the motherboard, but knowing my limited knowledge on PCs, it could be the CPU? Also minor grammar edit.
What are your system specs? Check your the manual for your Motherboard and see what that led is? Are there any error beeps/codes? You can also try taking out the ram and putting them back in to make sure they are seated properly.
