Heard back from the shop today and they said it was the ram which tbh was the last thing I thought of. Would that be consistent with the power switch issue and no display?

I don't think the power switch issue is really an issue. Whenever you are in the "BIOS mode" the power switch will simply turn the computer off. I think it is only when in the OS that the power management features kick in and the function of the power switch changes.

The order in which a computer "finds itself" is: The BIOS recognizes itself and runs P.O.S.T., (this requires functions from CPU and RAM), then the video is initiated.
The second thing a BIOS does during POST is find, size, and verify system RAM.

So it does make sense.

Is just one stick that is faulty or what?

It could have been the RAM, I've actually had the same issue. Replaced RAM and everything was back to normal.

Happy to hear they got it fixed.

Hello there,

I am not too sure whether my resolution would help you or not but I am going to explain my theory regarding your issue.

The reason why monitor is not displaying anything could well be caused by the Graphics card itself or CPU. My friend brought his computer to me with the same issue as you have. What I discovered was that his Graphics card and CPU was dead. So in order to test your theory, you'd have to try with on-board graphics card - if you have it built-in on your motherboard. If not, try with a different graphics card (if you have one).

The power button actions can be configured through BIOS. It really depends on your motherboard but it should have a setting specifically for the power button. example: [press 4 seconds for it to shut down] - [shutdown instantly when button is pressed] etc... So it could be you who have changed the settings or someone else who might have changed it accidently.

These are my theories, how much could be true.. I don't know. I can't really say more without seeing the problem myself.

All the best.

EDIT: I just payed attention and saw that you've fixed it. However, if people have similar experiences, this post could be useful for them.
