yesterday I added new ram and after that my pc didn't work again, when I turn it on the fans spin, the LED lights in front work, and the HDD starts up...
but it doesn't send a signal to the screen, when I plug in my screen to the tower the screen shows that there is a signal coming in by dropping the "no signal" warning.
I've tested everything but the Motherboard and CPU, I also tried disconnecting everything but the motherboard from PSU and the Serial cables, and ran off onboard graphics for output, and still it did not turn on. Sometimes if I leave the tower running it turns off all fans and alike after about 20 - 30 sec
For obvious reasons I do not want to disconnect motherboard or CPU to test, I remember there was another way to tell which one had blown but can't remember which one for what
I tested the PSU on the other pc of mine that demands more power and it worked fine
and yeah I've tried removing the ram from the motherboard and tested the other ram stick to make sure it's still working
I've Literally checked everything but the motherboard and CPU
thanks for the help so far though
Ok, let me get this straight ...
You have a working computer in which you added more RAM and now the computer doesn't work.
You removed the new RAM and now the computer works.
If both of the above statements are true, I see two possibilities.
One. The memory slot where you placed the new RAM is bad. In this case, plug the new RAM into the same socket that you know works with the old RAM.
Two. The freakin' new RAM is bad.
jsc....where did you did you see the box works when the ram is taken out?
the pc doesn't work with the new ram in out, i've reverted back to the hardware setup before the ram and still nothing, either my motherboard or cpu has gone, hence the thread name...
I think you right hell_storm, probably is the processor I'll try see if I can get my hands on a compatible one and test it. Thanks
