lol tried supported ram and it still didnt work... i have another theory... there are like little soldering points around the screw holes are they to complete the circuit? i have 2 holes with no screw in...
My problem is that my cpu isnt starting... i can leave absolutely everything but the cpu and heat sink out(including removing the ram) and itll do the exact same thing as if everything was in there... hell it does the same thing if i even remove the cpu... the fan triesEdited by kill - 4/28/11 at 5:50pm
