I have two RAM's ,256 & 512mb.i m presently using both of them but the display drivers of my 256 RAM are not working properly,so whenever i try to run a game it doesnt work.Will 256mb chip harm d the other RAM i.e 512 mb ,in long run?how can the problm b solved,can the display drivers be reinstalled ?
what exactlay is the best configuration to play games on the computer?
Try to change the slot of the ram,it might happen that your second Ram strip does not fit on slot properly , check all these two option and if there is any loose fitting it will start working and your operating system detect your RAM .

Hi which monitor are you using? Connect a different monitor to same system to see if that monitor works correctly with that CPU with same settings or connect your monitor with another CPU which is working properly with different monitor to pinpoint exact problem first. Any monitor if gets old will have such problem. If monitor is okay then you can check if display driver is present or not by going to See how many output connections your monitor has if it has multiple input connections like display port, HDMI, DVI, etc, you can try connecting to different ports if your CPU supports to see which connection gives what type of display. https://youtu.be/lOT4zLqMOWQ
This video has partial information about display settings. You can right click on desktop and select properties and make it to default settings.
This is either an error related with the video card driver ..and usually caused by an automatic update ...or ..it is a boot failure.. In first case you should see if it has displayed the buttons for boot select ..and select to boot in safe mode..and once in ..reinstall the video driver for it ..(remove the old one and download it from the support site and reinstall or use the disk if you have the disk with the drivers) .. In second case it may be either it does not see the ram memory ..or the hard disk .for the ram memory ..try to remove them and place them back on ..each at the time ..and try to boot up ..(in case of multiple modules) ..This way you will see which one is to blame ..It may be just out of place or damaged..and it may show a splash screen if one of the ram memory is damaged.. Another boot failure may be cause of a file missing in the system ..and in this case you need to start the recovery partition .,.or use recovery disk ..if you have one ..(try to boot from the disk ..by inserting it ..and press f12 for boot menu ..and select dvd as first drive to boot from ..) Another cause for this ..may be a hdd not detected anymore cause you removed a driver for it ..It is about the raid or the ahci driver ..which is indispensable for a sata hard disk to run on teh ahci mode..If this is the case it will either stop working and say it does not have a boot device ..or will try to boot and will get a blue screen of death .. the fix in this case is to get to bios settings ..by pressing f2 on start and look in the first tab ..and locate the hdd..after that look in its settings for the ahci function and disable it ..and let it run sata as ide or Ide compatible ..save the changes with F10 and restart the computer and if the operation system is still functional this will make it right again . let me know what it does exactly ..and what you've tried already ..and how it behaves...
Possibly a RAM issue or errors on the hard drive stopping the display driver from working properly. Remove power sources, remove RAM and hard drive. See if you get a display when the power adapter is reconnected. If you do, remove power source and fit RAM, (if not motherboard may be faulty). Repeat and if still working, remove power, fit Hard Drive and boot again. Assuming your OS is Windows Based; Reboot and use safe mode run CHKDSK/F and when finished check the drivers.
Hi, This is not a software problem. The problem lies in the motherboard.
The motherboard which you are using is an AL440LX motherboard which supports a maximum of 384MB of RAM. The computer will not recognize any more RAM. In order to use 384MB, you will have to add a 128MB RAM along with the 256MB already present and not any more !! This is the solution !!
Ok, let's explain this. RAM does not necessarily make your pc faster. Your pc can be faster if you upgrade your CPU or graphic card(only graphic application will make you notice the increased speed in graphics). RAM can be a bottleneck for application that need a lot of memory like photoshop when working on multiple very high resolution images or 3D cad when working on large assemblies, or VMWare. Vista manages the RAM in such a way that you might notice a slight performance increase and less disk usage during standard desktop activities, but XP doesn't. if you don't use very many applcations at a time and/or you don't use memory consuming applications, the added RAM is not used at all and your computer won't be any faster than it used to be. Video memory is basically the same. you will notice a difference in performance from a large video memory(512MB-1GB-2GB) only if you game at high resolution like 1080p or higher, usually supported only by large monitors like 20" or larger.
Media center is highly graphic requirement programme, which requires amount display memory and display driver to function and display properly, you problem will be from the bad display driver, or no display driver at all. I donot know if your system has vga driver install if that is case you only need to install the driver to fix the problem. if you have it what you have to do is to remove the current one and install new one preparably download up to date driver from the hp website, check possibly for the virus activies in my thinking it was what cause to much cpu usage. Remember driver always works well with the type of OS develop for. Look for driver for the current type of OS you have
