    I'm having trouble understand what your question is. From what I gather, you've got a friend's computer that had bad RAM, and you've replaced the RAM in the computer and it's still giving errors at startup. So you reinstalled Windows to SP3, with a fresh installation (not upgrade), but now the video card will not work.

    Is that right?

    If so, here's how to determine exactly who made the graphics card. Right click on my computer, an dgo to manage. Now open the device manager, and find the graphic card under display. Right click it, and go to properties. Now go to the Details tab, and in the drop down box find Device Instance ID. It should be a long code, looking something like this: PCI\VEN_1AB8&DEV_1131&SUBSYS.... and so on. Reply back with the VEN_#### and DEV_#### sections, and i'll tell you exactly who made it.

    I want to add more ram in my pc km400/km266

    Oddly enough this board has the following specs: The board supports both Althon and Duron processors up to Athlon XP 2800+ (3000+ with a BIOS update). It can handle 3 GB of DDR333 RAM (or 2 GB of DDR400, but not all types are supported). 
    That's the older 184pin DDR ram in PC2700 or PC3200 guises. I can see no reason why it would only accept 2gb of the faster Ram.
    Why not go over to  and run the online scan to get the true story on your board?
