    ITs really ackward ... look closely that the dealer could be getting a little steally for you.. could be possible that a power on off button jumfer just went loose or smps went a little loose but really this never happens just by cleaning.. if you have your old ram then get it tested at anyones elses PC..

    One advice if your dealer says to replace some damaged hardware, before buying new get it checked on other PC.

    It can happen if u have used a normal painting brush. It generates static charge which damages the electronic parts..
    I always use a brush with nylon threads..

    but static charges can cause this much damage ... its some ackward isnt it.. i think many of us use these brushes to clean up the system

    This is exactly what I thought when I read reddevil2 post :) It is most probably a static ZAP of the electronics problem.

    Just-a-thought .... I think nylon will cause MORE static than a regular animal hair brush - I say this keeping in mind the static discharges from Nylon cloths when they are rubbed by hands. If I ever use a brush inside the computer I hold the brush by the bristles and stand barefoot on the floor hoping that any static created will be grounded by me :)

    I have read in other forums about problems wth static being also caused by the flow of air when a computer is vacuumed - it seems that the air flow from the vacuum creates lots of static on the tip of the vacuums noozle and if this touches any chip in the computer it will fry it.
