Computer does not boot up
The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs
reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then
remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and
get them to test the RAM for you.
Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car,
sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults
on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to
deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them
to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection
of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on
If you just did a memory upgrade then the new chip is either not seated properly or the wrong type or even bad. Since it won't boot the problem is the ram in memory slot one. You need to rock it a bit to make sure it is seated before snapping it in. If it is the wrong speed or type you need to exchange it. It can also be bad but that usually means a counterfeit these days or you gave it a static shock and burned it out..
If you put your old ram back in you should be able to work again until you get the ram replaced.
You see some problem with hardware use to be logical sometime now that some technical expact has examine it over there, i will advice you get another screen and try it with it if still not display then you get another laptop.
sounds suspiciosly like your chord fitting is damaged(loose wires at connection)and shorting.if possible try a friends power supply with same connecter type before renewing cos could be faulty(loose)connection at pc(inside)constant pushing and pulling of connections often causes 1. loose split or disconnected wires at male connection or 2.loose pins on motherboard female connection or broken housing (not difficult to repair)more difficult to find out how to get to internal connection.
