Question about Computers & Internet
Compaq 6458cl. Just changed DVD drive and added 1gb memory . Will not power on. Push and hold on/off buttom causes the green an yellow LEDS on the button to blink. Also both fans will run while button is held and stop when released. I've gone over all the the connections several times,pushed and pulled anything I could touch. Help ! I'm bugged !
Most likely your motherboard does not like the ram you installed.. remove one or both of the ram chips leaving the one that was in originally.. test with that chip .. if it works something is wrong with the new ram: it's either the wrong speed or voltage for your motherboard or possibly defective.. you can consult your motherboard manual or motherboard manufacturers site for a complete list of approved RAM.
Keep in mind, most gaming memory requires a higher voltage than generic memory and some motherboards just dont produce it..
