I need help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi,

My PC broke down. The RAM light on my Asus mITX deluxe was flashing, so I thought one of the sticks was broken. I took out both and replaced one with a stick from my brother's PC. The good news is my PC booted, however, I decided I wanted to know which was broken.

I placed one of my sticks of RAM in his PC and turned it on.

The PC will not boot. It fails to show any signs of life.


I presummed the PSU was at fault, so I took a paperclip to it and its fine.

I then clear CMOS, tried without GPU, and gave the PC a clean as a last resort.



I'd be very grateful if you could come up with any solutions.



P.S. I've clearly changed the RAM back to the original working sticks.
