So today i recieved my 256x2 512MB RAM which i recently bought from ebay. yes im stupid. so i replaced my orginal RAM with the Ebay bought one and it didnt work. ok so then i replaced it back. Problem: computer power light does not light up and the computer does not start even thought i replaced the non ebay working RAM with the orginal one that does work. can anyone please help me out? i have a lot of homework and i need the computer ASAP. im at my uncles house right now. Thank you.
RAM is very, very picky on how you insert it. Make sure it is in STRAIGHT, and the clips are fastened correctly. 9 times out of 10 you have just not been ultra-mega careful putting it in. It took me a year to be able to just fasten it straight in in a heartbeat. So I would reccomend looking at that.
no dude, everythings perfect. its just the wrong type because i had a talk with a technician and he said that my computer does not support ECC RAM or something. but i dont even care about that... the computer doesnt even turn on now! even with the original working RAM.
I think he was referring to the RAM that's currently stuck in your computer (the original) ... make sure it's in perfectly straight and all connections are good to go... :uhm: ??
Forgive me if I'm mistaken.
everything is in perfectly... i dont get it though... even if the RAM wasnt in correctly (had pervious experiance) the computer power on light would still go green, but that doesnt even happen now. i also took off the cover and then turned it back on too see if there was something odd and there was... the fan doesnt turn on either.
Is the power suppy on? It sounds like there's no power at all.
As IfritZero says, sounds like there is just no power. Did you flip a switch behind the case ?
I Put A metal Case Over Shuch Switches And always Leave tuff Like this to the pros. But Yea I think It would be the power to.

Quoted for emphasis. While it is probably the PSU, it could be something else.
1. PSU power switch is off. 2. Wall Outlet/Power Strip outlet is turned off. 3. Power Cable is disconnected from the PSU 4. Power Cable is disconnected from the wall outlet. 5. The power switch connected was unplugged from the motherboard. 6. The Power Supply is unplugged from the Motherboard.
allright. everything switch is plugged in that is suppose to be. and the computer DOES turn on i mean you can hear its turned on. the power light just doesnt glow and the fan doesnt move. when i turn off the compute, the fan twitces a little, but thats about it
