Question about Computers & Internet
Hi. i tried to install new memory stick in my profile 4 but i had the power cord connected. now the computer will not come on. i tried the old memory stick and still the computer will not run. we tried to run the computer with NO memory in it and the fan comes on for about 3 seconds and then stops. have i damaged the motherboard or the memory sticks or both?
also, how difficult is it to install a new motherboard in a profile 4?
anything else that i could have damaged?
You need to replace the motherboard if the pc is auto shutting off, maybe even the processor!
