  1. Ok, here's my situation. My PC shut down psu was bad, replaced with anew one same kind, when i turn it on, all the fans come on, it goes to the hp startup screen,then stops. I have tried removing all the hd,cd,dvd,vidio card,fans and any other cable one at the time, but still no good.
    the keyboard will not work, have tried two, same thing..
    no beeps, but a clicking noise from around the ram area.
    Could the ram stop it from going to bootup

    this seems to be a memory problem.. Have you got another computer you can try them in? Also take both ram out and boot, you should get a series of beeps

    Ask one of your mates to check your ram in thier computer
