Installed New RAM, Now Have Display Problems (color)
I have a Dell Inspiron 530 with Windows XP. I just installed 1 GB of RAM into my dual-core processor, and when I rebooted the computer the display was tinted magenta (with no green). I connected the monitor - bypassing the video card - and had no color problems. (Of course, the computer would not boot until I reconnected the monitor correctly.)
I tried removing the new RAM and rebooting, and this did not solve the color problems. If you need more information about my system, please let me know.

Re: Installed New RAM, Now Have Display Problems (color)
It appears something has happened with the video card or connector especially if it displays fine with the onboard video and original memory. Disconnect power and reinsert the video card into it's slot.

Yes - both MOBO are same form factor.
You will need to remove the backplate (that is the part that surrounds the ports) from the case.
You will need to insert the backplate for the new MOBO in the case.
Most probably your hardware ie graphic card do not support software requirements.
Autocad 2009 system requirements for Win XP.
32-bit AutoCAD 2009
Running under Windows XP:
•Microsoft Windows XP SP2 operating system •Intel® Pentium® 4 processor or AMD Athlon®, 2.2 GHz or greater or Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 1.6 GHz or greater •1 GB RAM •750 MB free hard disk space for installation •1024x768 VGA with true color •Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (SP1 or higher)
If you are using AutoCAD for 3D modeling, you should bump up your system as follows:
•Intel Pentium 4 processor or AMD Athlon, 3.0 GHz or greater or Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 2.0 GHz or greater •2 GB RAM or greater •2 GB of additional free hard disk space •1,280 x 1,024 32-bit color video display adapter (true color) 128 MB or greater, OpenGL or Direct3D capable workstation class graphics card.
1. Autocad uses a lot of memory. Make sure you the maximum ram installed. You can check the virtual memory if that does not work.
2. Shutting down in the middle of an operation can be that the unit is overheating. Use a cooler, docking station, or stand the book on the side with the laptop lid open about 45 degree angle. Leave it on to see if it shuts down within the same time as when it was laying flat with Autocad running. If it takes longer, the problem may be a fan not cooling properly or allow more cooling during the use of Autocad.
