Hello,

Try this 1.

If you notice that your CPU fan is running but there is no display in the screen,

then remove the RAM from the slot, clean it and place it back properly or try

another slot.

Good Luck.

Hello,
If you not sure that you can do it then make sure its done by technical person.
Remove the power cord from the cpu cabinet --> Open the CPU cabinet and on the motherboard,
you can notice the RAM sticks. If you don't have any idea how the RAM looks like then click on
the below hyperlink "RAM"
RAM
The green colored that is placed is the RAM and the yellow colored is the RAM slot.
To remove the RAM, use both thumbs or two fingers to simultaneously depress the locking levers on the memory slot ( Do it slowly) so that it pop-ups the RAM from the slot.
Then clean it and place it back properly or try to place it in another slot.
Be careful while placing the RAM. Make sure you are not placing the RAM in wrong direction.
Place the memory module in the slot by pressing down firmly with your thumbs on both ends of the module. The locking levers will rise into place of their own if the RAM is installed properly.
Good Luck

Hello,
Try this 1
First remove all the dust from the motherboard. Remove the RAM and place it in another slot.
Make sure your have placed it correctly. Look at the locking levers and make sure the locking lever had locked the RAM at both ends which is the indication that RAM is placed properly.
If you are using a graphic card then remove it and place it back properly. Check your VGA connection also.
Good Luck
