Okay, I am new to the forum. I have a question. Right now I have a HP m1070n, the computer originally came with 512 mb ram, 128 mb shared video card and a 3.4 p4 processor. Instead of buying a new computer I decided to just purchased new hardware for the computer. I bought two 2gb pc 6400 ddr sticks of ram, a Geforce 8600 gts 256 mb ddr3 graphics card and finally a intel E2160 processor. Well after I put everything in and tried to start it up it didn't start. Typically there is a blue light on the front of the computer that turns on and it is not turning on. I did make sure I was grounded before I went inside the computer, everything was unhooked from the computer prior to putting the parts in as well.
One thing is that the graphics card fan is working. It came with connections for the power supply, I plugged the graphics card into the power supply. Then, just to check. I unplugged the computer and I unplugged the graphics card from the power supply and the fan still worked on the graphics card.
There are 4 slots set up for the ram, I used to have three different sticks of ram plugged in before, the computer came with 2 256 mb sticks and I put in a 512 mb stick.
I hope I didn't screw up anything bad... but you never know. I guess if anyone has an idea of what I might have to do let me know.
