HP - Compaq Pavilion Elite m9150f Power Issue

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Elite m9150f
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a HP - Compaq Pavilion Elite m9150f that I just installed Crucial 8GB (4x 2GB) DDR2 -800 UDIMM memory. I am running Windows 10, 64 bit and can use the 8GB of RAM.

 

After cleaning it out with canned air and installing the memory the units LED light will go on when plugged in but the fans and front lights will not work.  I tried numerus times to reinstall the memory, put in the old memory, checking all the connections and still cannot power on the unit. The LED on the back of the power box does glow green.

 

It did power on one time and I thought it was fixed but when it was unplugged to be moved it then it stopped and the same thing, LED on but no power.  One time I reset it by unplugging it and pressing the power button and waiting 10 seconds and it did power on. I thought it was fixed again and then tried it again and no, same thing no power only LED.

 

To answer some questions: No its not in warranty, yes I did unplug it before I replaced the memory. And it had been working fine before the memory was replaced.

 

I would love some advice.  A friend is telling me I should replace the power box but after doing some research it could be just about anything.

@songb3588,

I realize you had a 1Gb and 2GB modules in the original setup.

The motherboard can only handle 8GB total. The best configuration is (4) 2 GB modules.

 Were these Crucial modules specified to work with the m9150f ?
