Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I messed around with the cpu and my mobo socket , had to change mobo for that , did that , but somehow my ram also got damaged because the pc wont open , the dram light is on and I tried the RAM on a friends pc and it didnt work not a single stick ( 2x8 ) the only thing i remember doing is touching my ram right after i closed the pc to take them off and they were really damn hot

Also i applied them on my new mobo to see if they work i guess thye cant damage my new mobo slots right ?

You messed up a motherboard because you broke the CPU socket, and you are sure the CPU isn't damaged as well?

Then you took the RAM from that replaced motherboard and put it in your new motherboard and it wont work?

You tried the same RAM in another friends working PC and it wont recognize either stick?

 

I mean, based on what I can glean on your story, you broke something.  I "mess around" with PCs on a daily basis and have never broken a motherboard socket - what did you do?

Its a long story you can chech past posts ill keep it fast and simple, i fkd around with my cpu cuz im a dumb idiot and then i tried a new cpu , same problem , got new mobo , problem kind of fixed but dram light was on this time , tried ram on a friend , didnt work on his pc , so i got new ram now

The problem : pc would open for 15 sec then shut down on its own and start again for 15 seconds. 

After new mobo : pc would start and never close until i closed it on my will but nothing on monitor , dram light on
