I was changing the RAM for my fleet of Lenovo Thinkcentre M Series, and I switched the RAM in one of the machines, and now it won't boot up.  All the rest do fine.

Even when I change back to the original RAM, still doesn't boot up.  Just powers on, then not even the BIOS screen powers up.  Just has a green light to signal power is on, nothing else.  Any suggestions?

Are the CPU and PSU fans running?


Are there any unusual beeps?


With the computer shut down, open the case and check all of your connections.  Remove the RAM and then reinstall it making sure it is properly seated.  Disconnect your power cables and then reattach them to be sure they are properly connected.  Do the same with all of your data cables.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
