Did my MB die - Won't complete POST, assume RAM is OK .... Update: Computer is on life-support ... seeking new computer
Computer won't get to RAM check on boot, what's wrong? I replaced sticks with a known good set and exhibits same behavior.
UPDATE ... Computer fall down go boom, see post #15
... replacement system built? linky
Strange behavior from my Win 10 computer this AM when I brought it out of sleep it wouldn't connect to internet. I restarted computer, noticed Panda anti-virus had to make an install prior to shutdown, but on the reboot, it wouldn't get to the RAM check. I tried several times, changed RAM to old set of sticks that worked, and same behavior. MB has long beep if RAM not seated correctly (whoops) but otherwise can't tell what's wrong. I've never had a MB die before - did it give up its ghost?
Microcenter is down the street - is it worth dropping it off and have them go through it? I cannot afford to spend a few hours this week tinkering with it, I have some deadlines to meet. I hate not to have the time to work on my system, but in this case, it's worth $100 service fee to determine what's wrong & get system operational quickly.
