Question about Acer Aspire T650 (AST650UC3601) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Computer is not starting

I have replaced memory from 1gb to 2gb, replaced my DVD RW, changed my graphic card from original GeForce 7300 to GeForce 8500 GT and now my computer will not start. Tried to revert back all but no success. Before changing graphic card I disabled old one (as I don't have physically the driver) but not deleted it. Computer fan is working, power ok, keyboard not responding and nothing on screen. No idea where is the problem ? Thanks in advance

Looking for video card suggestion. have t6216 w/896mb RAM


i have a 7300gt nvidea in mine right now... ok, but not the best. runs dx9. and it helps to get the bios update from the emachines site to help with nvidea compatibility. To run most games now, you might need more ram, and for the price, a barebones with your old parts thrown in might be a better deal. The 7300gt is pretty cheap if you are just looking for a quick cheap upgrade for now. It works with the original 300 watt psu and works ok for me with 2.5 gb ram (2-4 gb extra ram realllly helps!). I think tiger direct has some nice deals on barebones and cards, it kinda changes daily.

Just installed 2 2GB cards (Corsair VS2GB800D2) to replace the 1 1GB card in my emachines EL1200 series. Computer will not boot. replaced the old card and it booted right up.


Will it boot with only ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks installed?
Will it boot with ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks AND one of the 1GB memory-sticks?

Look closely at the 1GB memory-sticks.
Does the label show 'DDR266' or 'DDR333' or 'DDR400' or 'PC2100' or 'PC2700' or 'PC3200' ?
Do the 2GB memory-sticks have _identical_ information?
It's definitely _not_ acceptable to have "slower" RAM (smaller numbers) in the new RAM,
but it _might_ be acceptable to have "faster" RAM (larger numbers).

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.

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?

    Setting up dual monitors with NVIDIA 7300 GS Graphics Adapter


    so...
    your computer don't recognize your nvidia graphic card in PCI Express slot.
    you are runing now with computer's integrated graphic card?
    if so then you won't have dualview option. in this case it looks for me like you've installed in the wrong way your graphic card.

    your NV GeForce 7300 GS has 2 video output?
    if yes then you should have the option for 2 monitors on nVIDIA control panel (i have check my nVIDIA GeForce 7600gt and in my case this option is present but is enabled only if i connect the second monitor, so try do so)

    you have installed the latest nVIDIA drivers from the official website? http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

    check if your video card is corect installed start/run type in " devmgmt.msc ". it will open device manager and under the display adapter tab you should see what video card you use now.

    Upgrade card


    Well, these are the minimum specs for Age of Conan:

    OS: Windows Vista/XP
    Processor: 3GHz Pentium IV
    RAM: 1GB RAM
    Video Card: Shader Model 2.0 and 128MB RAM: NVIDIA GeForce 5800 or ATI 9800

    These are the specs of your computer (base):

    • Intel Pentium 4 550 (3.4GHz) Processor
    • 1GB PC2-4300 DDR2 Memory
    • Two 74GB WD SerialATA Hard Drives in RAID0 Drive Array
    • 16x DVD+/-R and 48x CD-RW Burner Optical Drives
    • Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS Audio
    • NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Graphics Card with 256MB
    Seems to me that you are okay. Would a faster computer be better? Of course. But as you are, the game should play alright. Upgrading to an 8 series Nvidia is worth the change, though.
