Upgraded RAM, Now CPU Says "No Input Signal. Go To Power Save."

I tried helping a friend upgrade their computer. She bought her computer in 2002 and it is running like a tortoise.
It is a Sony and she only had 256 mb of RAM. So I suggested she buy some more RAM. The sticker on the side of the Computer says the Motherboard is upgradeable to 1GB. She went to the computer store with all the information she needed and they sold her two 512MB sticks. Once she installed them the screen said "No Input Signal. Got to Power Save."
The motherboard is a Asustek Comp Kirin V Rev 1.xx Bus Clock 133mghtz.
She also says that she put the old Memory stick back in, and the computer is now beeping.
Does anyone know what could be wrong?

I would check the documentation to ensure you purchase the correct memory. If you purchase the wrong memory type, it could cause issues like these.

What is the best upgrade cpu for a compaq presario sr5110nx 32 bit vista O.S... ATHLON 64 (single core) without having to go to 64 bit, and/or new drivers ?


The 400W PSU is going to limit your CPU selection to dual-core at best, although you might be able to get away with a higher-end dual-core CPU if your RAM is not ECC and not dual-channel, and you're not running anything serious in terms of a graphics or sound card or a SCSI array.

Given your current setup I'd really look for a 1.6Ghz dual-core Athlon which has a decent amount of KB in its Level 1 and Level 2 cache, but 3MB for its Level 3 cache.

Anything beyond that ballpark of a CPU upgrade is certainly well within the bounds of diminishing returns, and you should look at getting a new PSU, motherboard, and probably RAM (I'm guessing you're using DDR2 RAM currently).

I bought a 4gb ram upgrade and its still running slow why?


If the upgrade was added to the 2 GB of existing RAM, your computer will run at the slowest speed. That's why some manufacturers recommend replacing existing RAM with the upgraded memory

Bootup prob with M2N68-AMPLUS with AMD 7750 CPU. It has a


A couple of things that could be causing this.
Have you tried plugging straight into a wall outlet rather than the UPS to see if you have the same problem? If plugging into the wall fixes it, you have a bad UPS.
Next, have you tried replacing the power supply? It could be that your power supply is either failing or underpowered for your PC components, especially if you have upgraded something like your video card.
It could be an overheating problem. Download the SpeedFan application (freeware...search Google for "speedfan") and look at your system temperatures. If they have the little fire icon next to them, check which component is having the problem. Replace or upgrade the fan for that component. If it's ambient case temps, additional intake and/or exhaust fans may help.
Upgrade all of your PC's drivers and firmware (available through Asus' website).
Remove all external, unnecessary devices (leaving just your mouse, keyboard, and monitor).
Last option could be failing components. Since you said you upgraded your RAM and HDD, that leaves power supply, video card, CPU, and motherboard. If possible, swap these out with another PC's parts. If not possible, I would start with power supply, then CPU, then video card, and then motherboard.

Constantly rebooting


call me craxy, but you may need to replace your power supply, and if its not that, it is a stuck or broken fan on your graphix card or your cpu.
