PC not starting after installing/upgrading RAM | Solved

 RAM is an integral part of a computer without which it is of no use. Most of us face the problem when our computer does not start on powering on. One can hear the fan noise but system does not load bios.

This happen when we update RAM or sometimes you re-insert ram after cleaning the system. There are three main reasons why your PC does not start after updating RAM.

  • Your PC’s motherboard  does not support the total memory of RAM you are installing for example if you are installing 16GB of RAM and your system might not be supporting that. Another reason may be the speed of RAM you are installing is more than your system is supporting.  Ex Every system has a physical limit of total RAM that ca be installed and total speed that it can support. So you cannot install 32 GB RAM in system supporting 8GB ram and you cannot install 8GB RAM having 3200 speed if your motherboard max out at 2400. 

  •  The new RAM modules are not getting properly seated on motherboard. One loose connection will result in System not starting up. Clean up the RAM slot then try again and make sure the RAM gets seated firmly on system.

  • The RAM modules you purchased are compatible with your system but they may be defective. The RAM modules are quite reliable but sometimes defective piece may end up in the system.

How to troubleshoot RAM issue.

  • 1 – Remove the RAM that came pre-installed in your PC and install the new RAM. Making sure the RAM module slides completely into the slot and the retaining clips snap into the proper position to hold the RAM in place.

    If the PC fails to boot up as then you know the RAM modules you purchased are not compatible with your machine. So return the RAM and get a refund for the same.

    If PC boots up then the RAM is compatible with your PC then add your old RAM to see if system boots up and if does not boot up then you know your PC cannot support such high RAM

  • If you are in doubt what kind of RAM your system can support and how much can it support run tools ex Crutical system scanner which helps you know the compatible RAM, then you can purchase the compatible RAM.

  •  Also if you are using the compatible RAM and your system is not starting again then clean the RAM slot and also check if all slot pins are in good condition, even if one PIN is not damaged then your system will not recognize RAM
