Hey all,

I have a PC w/ a msi P67A-G45 motherboard. A month or so back a memory stick failed, took it out, ordered a replacement. I went to put in the replacement today, and I guess I must have done it too forcefully, because I think I ruined the motherboard.

When I went to start it back up, I powered it on. Fans spin and everything goes as normal, then everything stops. No POST beeps or anything.

I've tried reconnecting everything, looking for a short in the case, etc. I brought the motherboard out and breadboarded it with just the motherboard, and CPU, and PSU to try and eliminate any shorts and hear the long 'no memory' POST beep. No dice.

Am I screwed, or is there anything else I can try?

Have you tried to start the PC with just 1 memory stick?
