4gb DDR3 RAM in 2 DIMM
asus video card
When I try to power up, the fans start spinning and the lights on the motherboard light up. After about 5 seconds, it all stops and reboots. There is no beeping. I tried booting with each stick of RAM individually with no change. The processor seems to be seated well with no damage.
Ok, so on the list of 20 things, all seemed ok. When I pull out the RAM and boot, the same thing happens. No beeps.
According to the other post this indicates either a bad PSU, Motherboard, or CPU. Is there a way to narrow down what the problem is? I have no other parts to use and am a novice. Should I just send parts back and have them replaced? Everything looks physically undamaged.
