I just heard of a problem from a friend. He put some older ram into his computer (it may have been ddr, and he might have ddr2 in his system already. . .I haven't actually looked at the machine myself yet), booted, and then got nothing showing up on the monitor. So, he took the ram out and returned everything to its original spots, and now when he boots, the machine doesn't post (to my understanding). Here's the interesting part: now, he says all the fans in the case run faster than normal, and the ram heats up quickly. He has a recent model of low range compaq. I'll try to check out the machine myself soon to clear up the information, but any ideas so far? I'm thinking he either messed up his motherboard or the ram. Also, maybe he staticed something inside the case. . .I really have no idea.
