Packard Bell - Mode not supported

Hi

Have a 3 1/2 year old PC with nvidia 6200se turbo cache card (256mb), 1gb ram, 2.8ghz pentium 4 cpu and 19" lcd monitor.

PC keeps locking up and screen dispalys mode not supported. Have to reboot continually. Fan/processor/PSU seems to be running at very high speed when it happens.

Seems better when registry is cleaned and internet temp files are cleared.

Is it worth having fault diagnosed or should I just stump up for a cheap new PC?

Thanks

SOURCE: how do I instal two

As far as I know with that PC, there are 4 slots for RAM. Depending on what you have installed already some of those slots will be used.

Turn the PC off, unplug the power cable and turn case on its side. Remove the cover from the side and you should be able to see the Motherboard and the spare slots. Simply push the new RAM chips in to the available slots and click them into place.

Close the case, plug back in and boot up. You should see the PC memory checking then it'll boot. Check the RAM has been picked up by PC by right clicking on 'my computer' and going to properties. It should now show the amount of RAM you have installed.

This issue is caused by missing drivers. You may need to install the drivers (Video card drivers and the Display drivers), the setup will set the adequate resolution for the display so the images will be displayed correctly.

SOURCE: my packard bell monitor keeps presenting a blank

Try this for starters. Shut down the computer like you normally do. Next turn it on and while its booting up press the F8 key(keep tapping it). You should get a menu and on that menu, one of the choices is Safe mode. Select it and press enter. This will boot your computer into a Diagnostic mode where you can troubleshoot hardware software and windows problem in general. If you successfully get into safe mode answer yes to the question it asks and then goto your Device manager..you can get there by rightclicking the mycomputer icon and select properties from the drop down menu then select the Hardware tab on top.and click DEVICE MANAGER. In this screen look for your display adapter..higlight your graphics adapter and right click...then select uninstall...now reboot your computer normally this time dont press the f8 key..gointo WIndows normally. This should reinstall your graphics card and possibly fix the problem.

> has 1GB of the RAM stopped working?

Yes, or that 1GB stick of RAM is not "seated" properly into its slot.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power cord.
Remove one stick of RAM.
Reconnect the AC power.
Start the computer, and see if reports "zero" RAM or "1GB" of RAM.

Repeat with the other stick of RAM.

> "new hardware detected"

That's a quite-different problem -- changing RAM does _NOT_ cause this message.

I just got cod waw game but computer doesnt support vertex data am i wasting my time. I have acer L3600


Hello there,
COD WAW has a minimum system requirements of the following:
CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz
RAM: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA)
HDD: 8 Gigabyte
GPU: 256MB Nvidia 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT
One main reason why you cannot play the game, is that Intel GMA 3100 is not capable of rendering the vertex shaders that has to do with lighting.
  • In order to play the game, you need to buy at least greater than the PCIE video card mentioned. It's that simple.
  • For example buy an ATI HD 4670 512MB or Nvidia 9500GT 512MB consider the memory.
  • Click the link for PCIE Video card installation procedure. Installation


Hopefully you will enjoy COD WAW third person shooter game.
Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Hi,

You could put either of the graphics you mention in that motherboard providing you get the PCI-Express versions of them.

The motherboard will support a DDR3 structured graphics card in all cases at that is determined by the card not the motherboard as you get specific drivers for them which come included with the card or you can download the latest drivers from ATI or nVidia's support websites.

That motherboard will also support a gigabyte plus graphics card.



Kind regards.

Where is the serial number for my computer?


Use the Service Tag number, or the Express Service Code, (ESC), which is on the white Service Tag, on the back of the computer tower.

You may also have a Service Tag label on the top of the computer, or up on the side of the tower.

http://support.dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/dsn/en/document?c=us&dl=false&l=en&s=gen&docid=DAD1AFE6F90145549F7AA300E6671E47&doclang=en&cs=#3

Copy and paste the above into your address bar, then press the Enter key.

By the way. The Maximum Amount of ram memory for EACH ram slot is 1GB, not 512MB, as Dell states.

TOTAL Maximum Amount of ram memory for the Dimension 2400 is 2GB.
(1GB in EACH ram slot. There are 2 ram slots)

Ram memory used is DDR at 333MHz, or also can be stated as PC2700.

The best Processor you can use is an Intel Pentium 4, 3.06GHz, with HT. (Hyperthreading Technology)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Northwood_.28130.C2.A0nm.29

The best graphics card is an Nvidia GeForce 6200 O.C. (Overclocked edition), that has dual monitor ports. (256MB of graphics ram)

Yes, I know the processor, and graphics card are real old news, but so is the computer.

Anything I can help with?

I got a Geforce FX 5500! i want to know... ''Shader 3''?


Don't think you can with that video card.

  1. Operating system: Windows XP/ Vista
  2. Processor: Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon X2
  3. Memory: 1GB RAM (2GB for Vista)
  4. Free disk space: 10GB
  5. Video card: Shader Model 3.0 and 256MB RAM (nVidia GeForce 6800 GT/ATI Radeon X1600)
  6. Sound card: DirectX 9.0c compatible
The Geforce 5500 does not support Shader Model 3.0
You would have to get atleast a Geforce 6 Series for that Shader model.

Upgrade P5RD1-VM motherboard to the gaming PC


Your pc is not for gaming right now because you are using Intel Pentuim 4 Mother board and CPU. Amd Athlon is best for gaming. I have a AMD Athlon 4200+ X2 with 4gb Ram and Nvidia 6800 256mb OC. to upgrade your computer to a gaming pc. you will need to switch your motherboard and cpu for best performance on games. in order to do that, you might need a different case for your new motherboard. because the one you have might not be right for the AMD Athlon motherboard unless you have a custom made computer. other than that everything is set for you. if you have less than 1gb ram you might want to add more. because the games they are coming with right now is 1gb minimum or required.

i hope that answers your question.
Thank You
