Question about HP Pavilion a800n (PP163AA) PC Desktop
So i was trying to change out the ram for a better on. while doing that i decided that i was going to clean out the insides, mainly cause its never been done. also while doing this, i took out the processor to clean it out aswell. when i put it all back together, and powered it up, the fans were running and in about 5 seconds it shut down. it didnt even get to the BIOS and didnt even kick on the monitor.
after shutting it down it wouldnt turn back on untill after i unpluged it and waited for a really small green light to flash on the power supply. then plug it in and try again. but nothing changed, not even after putting everything back the way it was before i took out the ram.
all i need to know is, how can i just get it to run?!?!?! its been stressing me out for about 4 hours now and i just have no clue on what i can do.
i think it may be a processor issue because of taking it out and putting it back in. but i have no idea. HELP ME!!!
I think the processor is the problem, too.
Does the board beep? How is the beep?
Just try to remove it again. Make sure everything is placed properly when you put it back.
Also try to put old RAM back, to see if it is the new RAM is OK.

It is possible you "Fried" the processor or something else. all it takes is a small static charge to kill those delicate circuits. dont wanna be all doom and gloom. i would strongly suggest you take this to a pro that can test all the hardware and find out. hopefully it's just a problem with your power supply. please let me know
