Also makes a buzzing sound when switched on but nothing else. The monitor stays blank and the power light glows orange. Was ok one day and gone the next. Am a complete technophobe so am hoping the answer might be simple! All help gratefully received!

Go to the crucial website and run a scan,it will tell you what you need,or you could first pull out the sticks you have and reseat them first.
