Can a Hard Shutdown destroy RAM?
I built my own rig 2 years ago it's been amazing so far but the other day I had to do a hard shutdown while in the middle of a game because my foot hit the HDMI cord to my GPU and the screen went black but could still hear the game running fine. I shutdown the comp and now when I go to start it up the fans come on but the PC doesn't boot.
I have replaced the PSU and MOBO so far to no avail.
I've heard that RAM can cause this problem I just dont understand how RAM can suddenly just blow, I have 2 16GB Crucial Ballistix RAM. I just ordered an 8GB stick of DDR3 RAM for my PC to see if that's the problem, The only thing I haven't tried is replacing the RAM or CPU. Starting to run out of ideas.
I have also installed a MOBO beeper to see if I can troubleshoot it that way but since its not posting the beeper is useless. Really wishing I had some sort of indicator to tell me what is going on
MOBO - GIGABYTE GA 970-a-DS3P
