    hello all... i had this pc running at one point with a junk graphics card in it and low rated power supply..win 10..i put a 650 w power supply in it with a 760 nvidia....and the proper connector for it which i ordered n installed...the pc was in working order b4 i removed the card and power supply...i put my card in with the new connector and power supply checked all the plug ins to make sure to eliminate any issues.....i booted it up and no dell logo no bios...no display but i did see 3 and 4 lit up in amber and 1 blinking at random every like 5-10 seconds...i looked up the error codes and it said something to do with the ram module...i reseated all my ram tried 1 stick at a time in all the slots that it has available...rebooted nothing....i reset the battery by removing it and waiting quite a while b4 putting it back in....holding down the power button also in addition...to discharge it after removing the battery ...i put the jumper on the reset jumper to reset the bios....i also reverted back to the original config with the card that was in it with the power supply that was in it...and i still got the same error...3/4 blinking 1...everything ive tried to do for this pc has failed and idk what to do at this point...ive also went barebones with it and only plugged in the monitor and the power to it ..so i figured id ask in this forum.
