Hi guys was wondering if you can help I just installed some new ram into my computer (2X2GB DDR2) I bought from Mr Memory who told me it was the correct kind of ram for my computer anyways since installing it I cant get the computer to start. I can get the power to go on in it and hear it starting its start up routine (disk drives go on etc) but then it just stops . The monitor isnt picking it up either (I just installed a new graphics card also) so basically it just sits there with the power on and nothing happening. I even put the old RAM back in and the same thing happened. I definetly grounded myself by touching the metal computer container and power supply before starting so dont think that should have been the problem. Another thing is that when I pushed the RAM in the little slot things dont close by themselves could that be part of the problem ? whoever had made my computer had also seemed to put a bit of glue or something to hold the old ones in place. Anyways if anybody has any ideas please get in touch .
also does anybody think it might help if i removed the new gfx card qand put the old one in or something ? maybe that has something to do with it
hey thanks for the reply, fortunately i fixed it myself . Just wasnt pushing the clips at the side in hard enough. But yeah I dont know why they have put little bits of glue to put the old RAM in place, they also had put a bit of glue on the old GFX card I replaced last week and there is a bit of glue on the soundcard which i havent replaced yet. Anyways not sure why they did that but fortunately i seem to have fixed the problem so thanks anyway for your response
