My Computer Died
I have a Dell Dimension 2400, about 3 years old. It had 256 MB of RAM and I wanted to add some more. I bought 512MB and installed it very carefully. It has one of those cool knobs that allows you to remove the side without unscrewing 25 screws. I gently replaced all connections and turned it back on. The fan goes on as do all the back lights, like for the mouse and keyboard and network card, but the computer doesn't boot up. The lights in front remain steady green, which I know isn't good.
Did I loosen the motherboard somehow when installing the RAM?
What should I do, I'd like to not have to take it to a technician.
Any help will be greatly appreciated, even from Natchalnikoff...
