To further what @Ramhound said, put RAM one stick at a time into Slot 1 and run Memtest86 on each stick. That will verify that the RAM is good. Looking at those pins, they look like they are touching. Since half the pins on the CPU are for RAM (Bus, Data etc), it would make sense that it could be the thing that is causing the problem. If the Memtest86 runs ...

I kept fumbling with the wires, doing nothing special that i haven't tried before, and just kept trying to power it on. Eventually it just booted! I suppose my perseverance paid off. To anyone else encountering similar issues, just try disassembling your ...

This is close to a shopping recommendation, but let me try to answer it in a generic way: Maxmimum memory is limited by several things, including: The CPU. The memory controller. The motherboard (width of traces) The Motherboard (number of memory slots) firmware CPU: Obviously if the CPU can not support it you can not use it. Memory controller: (These ...
