Surprising Computer Hardware Problem

Dear all,

   I got a surprised problem.  When I switch on the computer, the computer hang it at once without RAM counting.

   Can anyone tell me what the posibilities which cause this symtom?

Thanks!

What did you get on the screen. Did you see any BIOS messages, and do your hear any beep when switching on the computer. Which BIOS to you have.

You probably have loose SIMMs or Bad RAM.  Take the RAM out and replace it again.  See if that solves the problem.  Depending on your configuration you can remove part of the memory and just try some to determine the GOOD memor.

You may want to check your CMOS settings. If you have your refresh rate for you memory set to high or you have speculative read ahead enabled, this may cause your problem also.

Because of no RAM checking first. Therefore, I cannot enter the Bios and in other words to check the CMOS setting.

You may want to check if your video card is seated the whole way in. While you have the case open to check that, take an pull your Ram chips out and take a couple and place them into different sockets and try again to restart. If you have an old video card, try replacing your existing one with the old one to test to see if it's the video card.
