I have an old P4 system 845 chipset board.By mistake I put RAM reverse ( not seated correct) side. After that my HDD light lit and can't switch on my monitor now. I tried 1GB DDR1 RAM with new one but no use. My old RAM working with another board. I take out Bios battery for few minutes and there is no change. Can any one help me to rectify this problem.
The fact the memory stick was not seated right, that must've caused a BIOS corruption; at least, that's a possibility. I'd recommend revising the information/suggestions posted at the following URL:
Hope that helps!
