Orange light on,not booting up

Answers :

Check your harddrive connection again. If its ide check if you properly connect the interface cable to its pin1 maybe you reverse its connection. Then reseat your memory card. Or you should clean its edge connector(old ram) with soft eraser if ever you still use that.

If ever it still not boot up, try to boot up the unit with the old ram module only. If it boots up, try the new ram. If in the new ram module it doesn't boot up, it seems your new ram is incompatible.
