It all depends on determining the configuration details of *********** board. A DDR2 (If the slot is) would have capacities like dual side memmory and one sided memmory that could be fixed on to the slots provided on the motherboard. I would suggest you to check with the motherboard specification which is available for all brands on the net. This is for sure an issue which is pertaining of the non matching memmory on slots. Good Luck.

Depending on what you did when you installed the 1gb stick it could be a matter of incompatibility or now your powersupply is bad.

When i bought my first customized PC this happend to me, it would boot up get to the OS i'd be installing new software then it would shut down immediately. The techs later told me that my power supply had been defective and they just replaced it and shipped it back. The next instance my RAM was bad and that caused a similar problem. And THEN the HDD had an issue too. So I've never bought anything from them again but thats not the point...

Point is that you may want to do a little testing if possible or try to remove the 1gb stick of RAM and see what happens. But like I said if it's just turning off and not giving you an error or a screen then I'd repalce your power supply with the same amound of power or more.

shut your computer down for 1 minutes with the power unplugged, and try it again.

depending on if your savvy with computers or not depends on how indepth you want to be.
You need to determine if your video card has gone bad or not. try to remove everything attached to your motherboard, memory, hard drives, any cables, and see if your screen turns on. Take out any network cards, video cards, modems etc, that is inside your comptuer. So you need to have your motherboard, cpu and fan+ power supply connected, and try to turn it on. If the screen comes up,l something you removed is bad. If it does not, and your computer is running, bad video card.

Most computers today come with an integrated video card, meaning everything is 1 piece. You might be able to bypass your motherboards video card port, by installing a separate card. You can get these at any computer store.

Hope this helps!

I have a Dell Dimension E510 and was told the Radeon 4670 would work in it. I installed the card but the computer just goes on and off and on and off. Is the card too powerful for my computer? Or do...


You do need to install the drivers before using your new card, but that would only effect the display if you didn't. If the computer is actually shutting down, then I think your power supply might be the problem. Check your card's manual to see what the minimum power input is. Then compare that to what your current power supply's output is. These new cards draw a lot of power and if your power supply can't handle it, the computer will shut down. If it does turn out you need a more powerful power supply, you can find them online. It's a fairly easy change to make. Hope this helps!

Computer wont turn on with video card


Hi, the problem may lie in the temperatures of the card and power supply. If the system exceeds a certain temperature the system will shut down, this is easily achievable if you are over clocking your cards or CPU. You might find that installing extra cooling power with for example, a water cooled unit, fixes the problem but it is an expensive way of finding out there may be another underlying problem. Just a thought, maybe you could get one, try it, if that doesn't solve the problem, send it back? Hope this helps in some way, happy gaming ;)
