Hi, so my computer has been running fine for about 3 weeks now and I was installing a new game guild wars 2 beta. During the process it blue screened said did a memory dump then when I restarted it, it just turned on about 10 seconds then turned off the monitor does not show anything on it, it just stays black. I've tried several times to load it up but same problem. I've disconnected my hard drives to see if they were the problems but no luck. I am thinking it is a hardware problem most likely the mobo. I have no idea how to confirm this or what steps to take next. PLEASE HELP if you can, Thanks

Ok so ive narrowed down the problem it is the ram it works just perfect with one stick in but putting in the second stick causes a boot loop without the monitor even turning on. Does this mean the stick is bad or? and how do i check it

Best solution

sounds like a bad stick. if your system doesnt boot with it in, theres not much chance of testing it, just replacing it. obviously, if u swap that set out, and same prob, its your motherboard.

Monitor stays black or off? Might be a defective (or dirty) pci-e slot. Move the VGA to another slot to start discarding stuff.
