Hi guys. I have a problem with my CPU. When I turn my CPU, the power button just keeps blinking green, the fans spin for a few seconds then stop but no display on the monitor. I've tried blowing out the dust from the CPU n even removed the RAM but it turns on for a few minutes then goes back to the previous state. What seems to be the problem, kindly help. TIA

Thank you
Take the RAM out, and try to boot with no RAM. Do you get the same indication?

Hey. I removed the RAM n the fans are spinning continuously but when I return it, it goes back to the same state as before. Does that mean that the RAM has a problem or there's an issue with the programs in the OS? Thanks once again

If you get two different indications, then more than likely the RAM is bad. Replace all of the sticks, not just the one that you expect is bad. If ypu really want to try to find out, place one stick at a time and boot. The bad one will be evident.
