    Hi everyone i could use some help
    i just took off my cpu heatsink to clean it out a little better because my computer was overheating quite frequently. My computer also hasnt been recognizing a stick of ram every time i turn it on so i rearanged my ram to see if it would fix the problem but now it wont turn on. When i hit the power button all my lights and fans turn on, it makes the same noises it always did when starting up so i thnk every thing else is on aswell but my screen just stays blank and no lights flash on my keyboard.

    thanks for any and all help

    These noises are codes of your motherboard.
    Leave the ram and re install it.
