Answers :

Hummm......did u replaced ur RAM with a standby..??

assuming that u must b a professional as ur disassembling ur pc without any supervision, which may b fatal..!!
and u r using above 512mb/400fsb of ram n of reputed maker (eg Hynix)..

however, proceed with following steps:..
check all the output signal frm the smps..eg. 'pg(violet +5v)', 'sb(if present, grey +5v)' n +3.3(orange) signals r fine..
hv a glance at ur main/mother board for faulty capacitors (esp. above 1000mfd)..the cmos battery above +3v..
if all the above hv been tested by u, see if ur hdd is making any noise (like 'tuk tuk' or 'kirr kirr' or 'sunn')..
replace the ram(s) with standby..

hope it'll solve ur problem..

always better to consult system admin/vendor supervision....
