Remove the memory modules from their slots.
Take the opportunity to clean the slots on the motherboards and the memory module connectors.
Use compressed air to blow dust away and clean contacts with a soft cloth.
Do not use a metallic vacuum cleaner if it touches any component it may create a short and cause damage to the motherboard or other components.


Do not use solvent that may attract dust and never poke things like cotton buds in to slots. lightly rub an alcohol (Methylated Spirits) on a cloth not to hard let the alcohol do the work on the copper gold or silver tabs and r
Allow the pins to dry.
They will air dry in a matter of minutes.
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory.
If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
Check the memory module and memory slot contacts.
They are either copper tin or gold.
The colour will tell you which they are.

Mixing tin and gold can result in corrosion that prevents proper contact.
Look for any sign of physical damage to the memory module, memory slots or the motherboard.
Reseat the memory modules.
You should hear an audible click when they are in place.
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty
if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy have secure connections and are not faulty
even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems
computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
Check your RAM.
The RAM is located in the middle of the motherboard.
There are tabs that you can push to release the RAM.
Remove it and put it back in place until the tabs pop out.
Loose RAM can cause your computer not to start properly where you want to see a video signal.
Make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket
if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free
Restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard
Check the vga lead for secure dust free connection or try another vga lead.

Will not close down


These monitors go into a standby just incase you are only restarting the PC.
To turn it off properly, hit the power button on the monitor before Windows has completely turned the computer off.

IE: tell Windows to shutdown, when you see the blue screen telling you Windows is shutting down, turn it off then.

Hope that helps
