Question about Packard Bell FT500 15" LCD Monitor
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?

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.

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.
