I hope someone can give me somewhere to start. About a week ago I decided to upgrade the memory in my Micron Transport T1000. The memory I bought was wrong 333MHz instead of 266MHz. I ran for about a day until I started seeing problems on the monitor. Took out the new memory and replaced the old. It was working fine, then started rebooting randomly about once per day a couple of days later. Yesterday, I couldn't turn it on at all. When I press the power button, all the indicator lights next to the on/off button light up for a split second, the cooling fan comes on, and it seems to try to read the CD for a few seconds. After that, the fan stays on, but there is no other indication that the computer is on. When I press the button again, the fan turns off. I have tried using a new stick of the correct memory with no luck. I tried powering from just the battery and just AC. I have removed the CD to boot...no luck. Any ideas on what this means? :tazz:
