    Try removing the motherboard from the case and place it on a piece of cardboard or wood. Install 1 RAM stick in the proper slot for using only 1 RAM module. Connect the power supply. The CPU must me installed for the computer to boot

    Please be aware that the computer won't respond without a CPU installed, just like you see now
