Question about HP Photosmart M415 Digital Camera
I added more memory to 2 computers and now neither one will light up on the screen. The cd rom works and the a drive works, but there is no computer picture on the monitor. Just black. Help!!!
Sorry to hear about your problems,
1st. We need to know what kind of computer, Laptop or PC.?
2nd. What kind of error messages are you receiving, when the unit try's to startup. ?
3rd. Have you tried to back step and replace the new (not working memory) with the original
Note….. Always have power disconnected from the unit.
Disconnect all devices, lay unit on its side, where you can see comfortably.
Always, double check your work. Take your time.
Chances are, you do not have the memory seated properly.
Look at the memory and try to fit into the bit slot. Do not force the memory.
If you are receiving a Beep message when starting unit, it is not seeing the installed memory.
Install one piece at a time and try powering up unit.
Don’t mix memory, work on one unit at a time.
Hope this information has helped you.
Readers, please rate you technician’s.

Remove the new memory and try it again. If it returns to normal then you probably have installed the Memory incorrectly or have a bad stick of RAM.

Usually this means that the memory is not compatible with the computer you installed it on. Try taking the memory you installed out and put the old memory back in there. Then turn on the computer just to verify that it will load. After it loads successfully (hopefully), Shut down the computer and add one stick of memory to the computer. Turn it on, if it doesn't load then the memory is not compatible and if you have more memory then just keep following the steps above till you've tested all of the memory sticks.

Tips for a great answer:
Computer is booting from a non-bootable source
Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette
or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.
Note: This error has also been known to occur when a
memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it.
If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory
stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras,
ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer.
If you are attempting to boot
from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is
likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files
or is corrupt.
If you are attempting to install
Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the
computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS
has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run
the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot
device, and not the hard disk drive.
Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.
Press any key to boot from the CD
Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.
If you are not receiving the above message and your BIOS boot options
are set properly it's also possible that your CD-ROM drive may not be
booting from the CD-ROM properly. Verify the jumpers are set properly on
the CD-ROM drive.
Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS
