i have a pc chips m81odlu motherboard with a 1gb ram limit. well i thought i would test this limit and put a 1gb ddr stick in one slot... well that worked. well then i thought ill put a 256mb stick of ddr ram in also and as soon as i did this my computer shut down and wont turn back on. is my motherboard fried or can this be a reset timer or what... yes, yes i know your supposed to power off before connecting any new hardware but i guess i was exited so i got in a hurry and forgot to power down first...
the troubleshoot: i have taken the memory out and put my old memory back in : didnt work
i have un hooked everything and gave it about five minutes to reset and hooked everything back up : didnt work
i pulled the cmos battery out and put it back in : didnt work
through all of this when i turn the pc on it has power to the cdrom the hdd and the cpu fans but no beep no bios screen nothing??? wwhat should i do im desperate here
