Everything was working fine when I shut it off last night. Today, I turn it on, the fans start up, it sounds like it's reading the HDD, but nothing happens. It just sits like that.

I checked the video card's connections, reset the CMOS, and even unplugged the HDD before starting it up, but nothing seems to be making a difference. Anyone have any insight?

Does it count the ram, if not it may be bad ram :( Hopefully you have a friend whith ram you can switch out to test it.

Funny story, actually: I did all that stuff and tried it out, no good. Then, a couple minutes ago, I turned it on to remind myself what it was doing, and it started up like there was never anything wrong with it.


Pff, computers.
