Till this evening my PC was working normal. Once it went to sleep mode didn't woke up. I put-off power many times but it didn't turn on. Seeing inside I general cleaned-up everything, removed & replaced RAM & power on. No change. However noticed that when power on button is depressed, both the cooling fans start & stop immediately and power switch remains lit-up.
kindly help,

Ok, so how many PCs have you worked on before, and how many were fixed by removing and replacing the RAM?

Is this a desktop or a laptop?
This is a Compaq Desktop. Single hand operated. I had experienced the same problem in the past 2-3 times. It used to get it normal but time didn't.

Ok, then pull the RAM. DO NOT PUT IT BACK IN! Boot. Does it beep? If not, then it is the MB (if you are 100% that you have an internal speaker connected!)
