RAM put in wrong way but now PC won't boot - making long bepping sounds & no screen
Posted on 2006-07-10
Customer called me yesterday to tell me he had removed RAM to see what type he needed to upgrade & accidentally had put it the wrong way - said he didn't force it but it mustn't have been in properly but before he realised, he turned PC on & nothing would come on screen but there was a long loud beep that lasted approx 6+ seconds repeatedly. I picked up PC to take back to workshop & I put RAM in the right way after that & same problem.
I then pulled out RAM altogether & same problem. I also had found a loose screw in sytem. Nothing comes up on the screen whatsoever.
Does it sound like, I only need to replace the stick of RAM or is it worse? I've ordered the RAM & hopefully will have it tomorrow. But I could do with some suggestions, if anyone's got any.
Teresa - BV I didn't think it was possible for RAM to go in wrong way but there ya go!
