Can a bad RAM stick stop a computer from starting up?
Can a bad RAM stick stop a computer from starting up? When I power up all the fans and driver run.
Best Buy checked the power supply and it is ok.
Yellow light below power button comes on for a couple minutes. no beeps though. Monitor says power saving mode and goes blank.
Checked out hard drive in a box on the lap top it is good all the files are there. It acts as though it cant find the system bios to start up the OS.
Can a bad ram stick cause this or can the processor find what it needs to run directly from the hard drive?
Is this a good question?
