Exclamation Installing Memory

I installed a memory upgrade for my friends desktop. Went to turn it on and it doesnt turn on all the way. The fan runs but nothing shows up on the monitor?? Did i short something?? Is the memory upgrade causing it not to boot up correctly??

If it's the wrong kind of memory that it can't read then it's possible that it wouldn't be able to boot up on it's own. I'd put the old memory back in and see what happens.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

well it has one already, we filled the 2nd slot with a new one. it just turns on but the fan is the only thing that works. he added another 1gb.

we asked the guy and micro center if it was the correct one, he looked it and then came and told us yes. ddr pc2700 1gb

As long as the computer was turned off I don't see how it would have fried something.

Desktops are extremely sensitive to static electricity if they're not turned on. One small shock and it can fry something easily.

What does the screen show when you turn it on? Does it just sit on a black screen? Is there a cursor? What does it show?

Do you get a POST beep?

Does it SOUND like it is booting up?

I've had the BIOS reset on me before disabling the external sound card... freaked me out for a bit....

What did you fry? I find it hard to believe you fried something on a memory install.

appearently one side of the memory chip is shorter than the other side by a hair. i looked at the memory closely and one of the gold teeth was completely fried off. from what i gathered it doesnt matter how the chip went in according to the install guide i found online. i think the 2nd slot was bad and caused the short when we put in the new memory.

Ive seen memory chips like that before and they have worked fine. Im not calling BS, but it sounds iffy. Also, even though it is 1gb pc2700, there are different voltages in that specifications. It almost sounds like you got a low voltage memory which is more common now to save energy and power, and the motherboard is running a slightly higher voltage since its a bit aged, and it zapped the memory by trying to put a higher voltage through it. <--That, i have done myself before.
