Question about Medion MD-1704 PC Desktop
A friend of mine with a Medion Multimedia Computer with P4 Sockel 478B has actually made it to Insert two Memory Modules on his Computer but one of them the Wrong side. He said that those things on the side closed well but however he was not sure he tried to start the Computer and it went on but no Boot Process, No Beeps and no Image came up. He shut it down and after looking closer he finds that one of the Ram Sticks was inserted the Wrong side.
After he tried everything inclunding the old Working Memory Modules but allways the same Result: No Image, no Boot Process, No Beeps and the Power Light on the Front of the computer doesn't light up with the computer anymore.
Is it possible that this could have done any damage to the Mainboard?
What could be damaged? Is it possible to Repair?
I tried to change the Graficcard nad the CPU for Him but with the same result.
Please any Help would be very Welcome.
When you insert a memory wrong side and try to boot the computer, there are chances that it may damage the motherboard. Also it may or may not give any beep sounds.
You may try booting up the computer without any RAM sticks in the slots. If you do not get any beep sounds, then it is definitely an issue with the motherboard.
Once you do that, take the computer to a local technician or you manufacturer service centre and get it checked.
