Re: max processor support
Believe the Aspire runs a 939 chip, if that is the case -AMD Athlon FX-60 Dual Core @ 2.6Ghz -AMD Opteron 185 Dual Core @ 2.6Ghz (best Overclocker @ ~3.2ghz) LINK this is for cpu-z to see what processor id, fsb etc,

The Amber A and C signifies a failure to post. Computers Post BIOS to Processor, then RAM, then back to Processor before initializing the other devices. Try reseating the RAM or replacing it before you go further.
If you have upgraded the devices within the PC recently, you should consider that you should not be running anything less than a 350W power supply.
*********** board will support a max of 1GB of RAM. Your processor is an Intel at 1.8 GHz. The preceding is only true if your PC is the Emachines T1840 as you chose in the category listing of your post. Again if that is true, you can achieve the max RAM by installing a 512MB stick in each of the two memory slots. Good luck.
PS: Gdlkn84as528 is correct in assuming that a less than 1.3GHz Intel processor would be a P3 or equivalent processor. So which is it, it can't be both ways?
I would try two things: One pull the GeF 8400 out and boot as you normally did, install the drivers for the 8400. Then reinsert the Vid Card (8400) and when it looks for driver viola... If that fails: Second if you can get in at all try the old F8 key on the boot up...and see if you can get in using SAFE MODE...and install your drivers from that point. Assuming the second set fails update the video driver using device manager. That's a great vid card...good luck..leave a rating please.
Upgrading RAM is a fairly simple process. As this is a fairly compact laptop in design, you will have to upgrade to a new 2Gig RAM module and basically discard (or sell) the one you end up removing. In order to find out the type of RAM you'll need, remove the cover as show in the picture and the info for the existing RAM should be written on it.
if you are looking for performance, you may want to start with the RAM first. It is DDR2 and that laptop is able to go up to a max of 4GB RAM. If that doesn't speed things up, consider getting a 7200RPM hard drive. Laptop processors rather difficult to upgrade. It will require disassembling the laptop completely and theres a good chance that something will be damaged in the process
