Cant get it to show splash screen.

Specs: vista, 3gb
Black screen on my gateway laptop. I have an M6890H gateway laptop that will power on and shows the hdd light flash along with the dvd,wireless light and the caps lioghts briefly. But all syatems stop here. splash screen does not come up nor will it boot. However the cpu fan will not saty running unless i remove the ram chips. Hdd powers down when i power off. Tried new ram chips. Same thing. So i'm thinking the cpu is shot. Or maybe the motherboard. Does anyone know for sure which? The problem started after i put a memory stick in the usb port. Then it shut down on me and has been this way since. Any ideas or info would be appreciated. thx

Hmmm.. it's either the processor or the motherboard. But the fact that your seeing status lights and the cpu fan keeps going after it shuts down leads me to believe that the motherboard is shot. If the cpu fan is going then that means there is an issue with power or directions within the motherboard, so that could very well be the culprit, the motherboard.
