My PC in my work Suddenly shut down and didn’t boot. We figured that either it’s the motherboard or the PSU. After checking the PSU is fine and changing the motherboard, the pc managed to boot (the fans started working), but nothing else, I wasn’t even able to get into the bios. The Fans started shutting down and then started again repeatedly without getting to bios. After removing one of the RAM sticks the PC managed to boot to bios so I figured one of the RAM sticks have been damaged with the old motherboard. We changed both RAM sticks with a working pair , and yet the problem persists. It seems like the PC manage to boot with one of the slots only. So my question is this:
Could it be the new motherboard that I got is faulty and one RAM slot doesn’t work? Or was it the CPU which got some kind of damage with the old motherboard that now it can’t run with two RAM slots?
The PC is pretty old, 4th generation intel processor with DDR3 RAM sticks.
