Your cache administrator is webmaster. I've done this successfully once before with another PC so I'm reasonably sure the new RAM is compatible. How do I do that?

At least in the previous problems, I knew what part was broken or malfunctioning. What actually powers up on your motherboard?

  1. I always figured the two issues were related.
  2. In most cases the culprit is the graphics card.
  3. I've tried switching back to the old RAM, but that doesn't work.

If you've got any extra parts laying around you'll want to test them out. The flare came from the socket itself and scared the heck out of me and my students.

I tried unplugging the 4-pin cable to see what would happen but it just booted and turned off instantly within a second. After I put in more RAM, something came on saying I needed to enter the product Key, which I do not have. Did you ensure the new RAM is compatible with your mainboard? If you still get nothing then as Steve said you've got to start swapping parts.

scsimodem2009-10-03, 02:43 PMWhy not turn the thing on and see? A PC should not come on when its just plugged in with the power switch off. The time now is 06:31 AM. How much is it going to cost me to get this problem diagnosed and repaired?

o_o i tried letting it boot all the way, see what happens...says it's missing a file that windows can't find and press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart so I decide to give it If you still get nothing then as Steve said you've got to start swapping parts. xxhennersxx Registered User regular May 2007 edited May 2007 in Help / Advice Forum About two weeks ago, my computer started randomly resetting.
