sorry, I forgot to mention, I did remove the additional RAM sticks. The motherboard is an ASUS A8V
Hey guys, I was just installing RAM into my computer. After doing so, I started the machine and the monitor wouldn't work. I looked to see if the graphics card had come loose, but it was tightly held in place. I shut down the machine and tried turning it on again. Only this time, it wouldn't even power on with the power button. But as soon as I unplugged the main outlet and plugged it back in, it powered on by itself (without even pressing the power button), but only select components, namely graphics card and CPU. The rest, including network card (onboard), DVD-drives, etc would not turn on. I am completely perplexed by this situation. If anyone could give a few words of advice or point me towards a solution, I would greatly appreciate it as I would like to get back on my computer as soon as possible. Thanks.
