Question about Computers & Internet
Recently purchased some memory from crucial for my iMedia 1402. Inserted the RAM, turned on the computer and it began beeping. I figured I must have inserted the memory incorrectly, so i re-seated the memory and turned it on again. Still the same problem, loud long beeps. Inserted the older memory but still the same problem. (The new memory i purchased from Crucial was the correct memory) The only way I could turn the computer off was by unplugging it. Now when I turn the computer on I don't even get any beeping. No signal comes to the monitor. The fans are spinning but there doesn't seem to be any activity with the Hard Drives, there is power going to the DVD Drive. Prior to the beeping noise vanishing I did smell some king of burning, I was worried that the motherboard was fried and if it has, has it killed the memory, graphics card and processor? Contacted the local computer shop who charge £47 before anything has even been done. If its a MB problem then I need to know where to get a new one from, and which one to buy. The trouble is I have no way of determining the problem. I'm wondering whether to just take it to the local computer shop where I will probably have to pay a lot more money. Anyone else experienced the same or know what the problem might be?
Many thanks for any help
BAD MEMORY MODULE
Im thinking CPU fan
Otherwise It could be the RAM....that would be my second guess.
