If all you have done is upgrade the memory, take out one stick of memory and see if the computer will start up. If it acts the same way it has been acting, take out the other stick of memory and put the first stick of memory back in. You could have a bad stick of memory. Does the computer make any beeping noises when you try to start it? Those beeps are the BIOS way of telling you there is a problem. One BIOS beep means the system is starting if you have more than one beep, there could be a problem, the number of beeps along with the brand of BIOS will give you a clue as to what the problem is. Once you know the number of beeps and the brand of BIOS you can search the Internet for what the problem might be. Your monitor showing "NO SIGNAL INPUT" is its way of saying "I'm ok but something else is wrong".

either your screen is unplugged, graphics adapter is broken or your ram is dead, try taking out the ram one stick at a time to see if it boots, does your system post, if it does you may be able to run memtest86 from a bootable drive. if your computer is still under warranty call the manufacturer
Sounds like your video card or monitor is bad. Most likely it's the video card because if it was the monitor the No Signal Input could not appear on the screen. To isolate the problem try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed Monitor displays ok without a problem then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor has the same issue of No Input Signal as your original monitor, then your video card inside the computer is bad.
The splash screen with the LG Flatron logo is the monitor's splash screen not the PCs.
The machine is NOT booting up the splash screen is the monitor coming on.
Remove the 1Gb stick an see if the machine performs normally.
If it does then power it off, remove the power cord and CAREFULLY reinstall the new stick.
If it fails to boot you may have a defective memory module.
If the machine fails to boot with the new stick removed make sure you have the original memory seated properly and all cables securely attached
Kindly try to disconnect the monitor from the computer and check it by connecting to power source only to see if it runs the self test, If it shows you the No input signal on the screen that means the monitor is working fine.
Please forward more details for further trouble shooting
First, you should try the monitor on another PC to see if it works. Then if there is still a signal error, try opening your PC case, blowing out any dust you find with compressed air, then re-seat your ram and video card. If you have on-board video, try removing the cmos (Bios) Battery or if you can find it, jump the bios reset jumper, then restart.
If none of those solutions work for you, try installing a slot based video card in either your, PCI, AGP or PCI Expess slot to see if your onboard video has simply failed.
1) Monitor cable connection loose. 2) Video card (if you have one) not seated, or bad. 3) RAM module not seated, bad, or wrong kind. (If you have not messed with the RAM, probably not one of these.) 4) If your video is integrated into the motherboard (no video card) your motherboard may be bad. Installing a separate card could correct this. 5) Bad monitor.
Have you made any changes to your system when this happened?
Try to connect another monitor/cable to your computer and try your monitor on a friend's computer to see if it works.
