✔ Best Answer
Do you feel comfortable opening the case? If so, unplug the power cord, press the power button for about 30 seconds. Open the case, and reseat the RAM. Then put the panel back on, plug the power back in and try booting again.

It looks like a memory failure. See here -

If you have two sticks of memory, try removing one then turn the system on. If it doesn't work put it back and remove the other. You can also try removing the memory modules and clean the contacts with a pencil eraser to remove any oxide buildup.
