Hi, I opened up my computer today to look at the ram. I took 2 of the 4 lots i have (4x 256) out and then put them back. That's all i touched. Now i power up the computer but all it does is make a continuous fan noise and nothing else. It's the noise that it usually makes when it first starts up but now it just keeps going and going and nothing loads. Please anyone know what i've done???
Were you wearing an anti-static wristband or working on an anti-static mat when you checked the RAM?
Is there a small light on the motherboard that is lit? That will tell you if the circuit within the motherboard is receiving power. If the light is out then obviously either that curcuit is broken and possibly a dead motherboard or the power lead from the psu is either disconnected or faulty.
Is the noise upon startup coming from a fan that is connected directly to the psu or via the motherboard?
Hello again, O.k problem solved. Turns out i hadn't pushed the ram in properly. I was so afraid of breaking it i didn't relize that it needed to be pushed in very hard. I won't be doing that again in a hurry! Thanks alot for the help.
