I had a gig of Corsair ValueSelect RAM and my computer was fine. I sold that off and upgraded to 2 gigs (2x1) of some good OCZ Platinum RAM. Now my computer won't work!!
I don't have a computer at home because my laptop is fried and my main computer is sitting there with no ram in it
so I am having to be on here while at work. So I need everyones theories and opinions as quickly as possible.
My MOBO has the diagnostic led's that are, i think, telling me that my video card is recognized, ram is recognized, and cpu is recognized. I have 3 lights out of the 4. The last light that I am not getting is supposedly just for system startup.
My computer turns on, all my fans work including the one on the video card, cpu, all that stuff. The power led for my ram is on, everything seems to be working perfectly fine other than my screen saying there is "No Signal" and then sitting there black.
Here is what I have tried so far:
-tried switching the ram through all of the 4 slots
-checked all the power plugins that I could find both into the wall and connections to the power supply and mobo
-unplugged the video card from the mobo and then plugged it back in
I was thinking of putting my video card in a different slot to see if that would help but I don't know if that is a good idea or if that would even work.
Please give me all the info you guys have, I would think that two sticks of this good expensive ram wouldn't both be duds and I really don't want to RMA but if I have to then I have to. I really need all the input I can get guys.
Oh and I have no backup ram to try and see if it works and like I said I have no other computer at home right now
