Your problem here can be resolved by installing the combo osx update. You can get it from here.

It's 668MB so you'll need to be a bit patient but once you've installed it it will put you back on track.

All the best

My Mac will not install the Digital camera Solution Disk says my screen resolution is insufficient...


This must be because you have a widescreen monitor or because you have set a screen resolution that's too low for anything.
Most programs ask for a screen resolution higher than 1024x768 (which they rarely actually need) to install.
So you can change yours to that value (or higher) for the installation and if it distorts your display, set it back to the original value later.
To see how to change your resolution, go to this site; http://www.ehow.com/how_2064940_change-display-resolution-mac-osxchange-display-resolution-mac-osx.html
After setting the resolution to 1024x768 or higher, run the installation and it should proceed with no problems.

I need to know what RAM I should use in my Compaq Presario 5000 desktop computer


You have three Ram Memory slots.

EACH ram memory slot's maximum amount is 256MB
Total Maximum Amount for the computer is 768MB.

Uses SDR Sdram ram memory.

[Single Data Rate Sdram. Commonly just referred to as Sdram.

That is a misnomer.
All ram memory from SDR to DDR3 IS Sdram.

Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory.

SDR Sdram = Single Data Rate Sdram
DDR Sdram = Double Data Rate Sdram
DDR2 Sdram = Double Data Rate 2 Sdram
DDR3 Sdram = Double Data Rate 3 Sdram

Just thought i would share ]

Uses SDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 133MegaHertz. (133MHz)
Also known as PC133.

Make sure it is,

A) Non-Buffered
B) Non-ECC
C) Low density
D) CAS Latency of 3 (CL3)
E) Uses 3.3 Volts

Toshiba sp6000 512mb sdr 133mhz chips


These are the memory modules for your notebook, any others won't work. The max is 1024mb

You need these modules:
PC133 512MB (PA3108U-1M51)
PC133 256MB (PA3086U-1M25)
PC133 128MB (PA3085U-1M12)

If the modules you've installed meet the above criteria then make sure they are seated correctly.

Bear in mind it is always possible one of the modules is defective so try them one at a time, also they are non-eec.

DELL Optilex GX110 - RAM


Put the "old" RAM back into the computer, to see if the PC will work at all, or if you damaged the motherboard when you were changing the RAM, or if you accidentally disconnected some cables or jumper-blocks.

Hi,

Make sure the RAM you bought is on the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) for that motherboard. I know I have had problems with ASUS motherboards and OCZ ram before (for example).

QVL Found HERE

As for the monitor, what do you mean "my Monitor gets disturbed"?

Also make sure you have the games running on the Monitors recommended resolution.

Starts without ram but not with ram


The FSB jumper is not for the memory. It's for the CPU.

Set that back to 100mhz and try it again.
