So I decided to upgrade the SSD and the RAM in my Aspire One, replacing the 8GB SSD with a 16GB CF card. I do the necessary surgery, replacing the 512MB module with a 1GB module, and the SSD with the CF card (with the appropriate adapter). I put it back together, making sure that every component was plugged back in. Upon starting the machine up, I get a green power light, but nothing on the screen -\- not even the BIOS screen. I swapped the CF card with the SSD, and it worked perfectly again. What is most likely the problem? Could the problem lie with the card, or maybe even the CF-to-ZIF adapter?
