Carefully remove each one in turn and clean the connector edges with either a fibreglass
pencil, (used by draughtsman), or a standard rubber pencil

their sockets. If the RAM cleaning doesn't work, I'd remove each socket
mounted chip in turn and re-seat them.
Parameters while booting is the magic reset, but I think Claude has already
mentioned this. Your continuous Loop 3 problem however, is very unlikely to
be cured with a re-set.
If all this
fails, threaten it with severe physical damage; it probably still won't boot but you'll feel
let us know what happens,
