My computer has recently encountered a problem, whereby when i on the power at my CPU, lights will be lighted up and fans start spinning. But that lasted only about 1 second. After that, everything stops. There are a few times whereby all of them will start working once again, after stopping, but usually they stopped again, with very few times successfully boot up.
I had brought it to the service center and what that guy did is remove my ram and place it back. To my surprise, my CPU boot up. However, a few days later the same problem occur again. And I did what that guy did, but this time round I did clean my RAM metal piece (I don't know what do you call the thing that attach the RAM to the motherboard). It failed a few times, but boot up eventually after several tries (took out the ram, put it back).
I had totally no idea what is going on. Is that I should buy a brush and clean the metal piece of my RAM? The cleaning mentioned isn't really cleaning, as it is only using the hand to wipe it once (after making sure hand is not static). To some of my friends relates me to my power supply.
I have no idea what is causing it thus I could not bring it to the service center once again, as he will tell me this if he is able to boot up my computer: "so what do you expect me to do?" It really hurts.
Desperate for help, hope someone know what is exactly going on. Thanks.
Note: My reply might be late as my computer might not boot up....
