W530 won't boot & can't get into BIOS (blank screen)

Hi, I am experiencing some problem with my W530 and I really hope that experts here might be able to help me to find a solution before I sent my laptop to repair.

This laptop is runing windows 7 pro,  NVIDIA Quadro K2000M, Intel Core i7 3740QM, 4GB RAM, 256GB SSD and DVD Optical Drive.

Recently I decided to upgrade the RAM and I added 3x4 GB RAM then the laptop won't boot. After I press the power button the screen was blank and it beep 1-3-3-1. So I unplugged the 3x4GB ram and It still won't boot.

Hopefully someone can help me find what the problem might be.

In my experience (which it is not the greatest) I haven't see a modern pc that get screwed for installing the wrong RAM. It should get back to normal when you return to the original RAM modules. Some machines are very picky with the speed of the RAM memory module.

Be sure that you have unplugged the battery and try with only one slop with the original include RAM.
