After building a new comp for some reason I decided to keep my regular ddr ram (2 512 sticks) and finally today I bought two new 512 stricks of pc3200 ddr400... turned everything off, took out he old sticks, plugged it in and no boot. I am also getting a very soft (but extremely high pitched) squealing from my power supply. At least it sounds like its the power supply. (and yes I did plug them into the mismatched slots and try and turn it on, but I dont see how that would fry something) Anyways, now even when I plug in my old ram I still get the same problem. Have checked all my connections and I dont have another power supply in the house with enough prongs to test it out. If anyone has any ideas or something I could try it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I run win XPpro, AMD 64 3.2 processor, and one of the newer asus SLI dual PCIe slot motherboards and a 480w power supply.
(edit) Was just looking around at other posts and didn't even think to check if my mouse light was on or not. Which it isn't.... leading me even more to believe (and hope) thats it's only a power supply issue. Still wondering what I could have done to kill it since it was working just fine before.
