I honestly dont know much about computers and so wanted to learn more and read somewhere that I need to clean the cpu once in a while. Mine was absolutely covered in clouds of dust. So I begun cleaning with a dry cloth and some compressed air. Then I put everything back together and my computer wouldnt start!!! Instead makes 3 long beeps, pauses and then beeps again endlessly until disconnected from the wall.
I read that 3 long beeps mean memory failure and so took the memory out without touching the metal prangs and put it back in and it wouldnt solve the problem!!! It keeps beeping.
I think I may have killed it because afterwards I read that you shouldnt do this with a carpeted floor and my floor is carpeted!!!!!! This freaks me out majorly because if this is were all the information is stored Im dead. I don-t have any backup of 8 years of my professional photographs!!! and more than 100 videos I-ve made!!!!. Please help me I'm in the verge of a breakdown.
Thanks for your helpful answer but I just discovered that My Ram is JUST FINE.I did indeed panicked and couldn't notice that I wasn't pressing hard enough in the correct form to make it fit, I just kept pushing in the middle instead of one end at a time. I know, stupid. Much obliged.
