    so a couple days ago my pc was running completely fine. Prior to this, i ordered another 8gb stick of ddr4 ram for my pc. when it arrived, i turned off my pc, opened the pc and installed the second ram stick. But when i tried to turn the pc on, it would just say "signal not found" And now when im doing tests trying to get it to turn back on, the PC randomly turns off and after a second or two it turns back on. I know that it has to be something wrong with the computer because when i plugged the exact same monitor into my old laptop, it worked perfectly fine.

    I have already tried removing my gpu and putting it back in, cleaning my ram, removing my new stick of ram and more. I am now looking to buy a new pc part to help fix my problem.

    Most of the people I have talked to have said that it is either my motherboard or my power supply. Any advice is greatly appreciated

    Questions: Is the RAM you bought the exact same as the original installed? Did you use an anti static wrist protector when installing new RAM stick? Are you getting in beeps when it powers on?

    That might be your issue right there. As for being ground....you have to be grounded, hence the antistatic wrist band. You may have given your PC a ESD (electrostatic discharge).
