Try reseating the RAM. If the computer won't even post it's probably a RAM problem. I worked on a machine about a year ago that took almost two days to get the RAM to seat properly. It was doing the same thing worked when it wanted to. I finally used the end of my BIC lighter to beat it in. You can try to reinstall the old RAM to see if the RAM is the problem or try installing it one stick at a time.
I would try removing, the cd drive,hardrives out so all you have connected is the processor, and ram. If two sticks dont work try one. Try this as a starting point too see if you get a display signal from the monitor, and the bios. Also try putting in a video card in the pci or agp if the on board video isnt working.
Your upgrade options for a better video card are really dependent on how much you want to spend. You have a PCI express x16 slot which is what your are going to use. Visit www.newegg.com and you can look up video cards by manufacturer, memory amount, and even filter it by how much you are willing to spend. Here's a link at newegg for "the best video card upgrade":
Since there is a newer PCI 2.0 Express connection on newer computers, you can get your video cards cheaper now. You will notice a huge improvement with any video card you choose since onboard video is about the worst. Just remember to go into the device manager and disable onboard video card after you install the new video card.
I had already done the things that your expert suggested. This morning I purchased a new web cam but the same problem occurred. I took my computer back to the shop where I had just had a new motherboard, graphics card, processor and RAM put into my computer. They managed to solve the problem as it was the problem with 'frame rates per second' that the graphics card was set at. It was on 60 but should be on 85fps. What he did was Rt Click on desktop, > properties, > settings, > advanced > monitor to change the settings. Now problem is solved.
first of all check brihtness control of your screen was adjusted properly and fied with sufficent level.
then check RAM slot and re fixed it properly.
if stil you have the problem chek disply card mother boadrd and of laptop unit.
I just installed a geforce 6200 with heatsink, no fan, in my computer. Fry's is having a sale and for $20 after rebate, how could I go wrong? Upon first installation, the computer failed to boot.
Discovered modern computers will not even atempt to boot if the power supply is below the minimum requirement for the video card's recommended wattage. More proof that over-powered supplies are not an absolute necessity. I upgraded to 250w from the onboard 180w and it fired up. The rest was disabling the integrated video which i found out was compatible with geforce 5200 level of operations.
My system: Dell Opti-plex GX260, cut to bare minimum since it was from a commercial business with 1G RAM after upgrade.
There are two different memory modules for that series.You can determine which you need by the chipset for you machine.If you have a Via VN800 Chipset You need the 1024MB-DDR333, 333MHz, PC2700, 200p SODIMM, 2.5v. If you have the NVIDIA nForce 410 Chipset The you need the 1024MB-533MHz DDR2-533 PC2-4200, 200p SODIMM, 1.8v Hope this clears up your problem
