It uses DDR RAM 266 MHz. I can use up to 2 GB. Once you have memory for it, turn off the computer and unplug it. Open the case. Look for the existing RAM. It is fits in a slot. There will be two slots in parallel. You press the tabs at the ends of the existing RAM and it will pop out of the socket. Note how it sat in the slot, in particular the placement of the notches at the bottom. You want to place your new RAM in the same way, so that the notches match the notching in the RAM slot. Press this into place so that the tabs on the end pop back upon the ends of the RAM. You do not have to press extremely hard. Make sure the tabs on the ends fit into the notches at the ends of the RAM. Close the case. Plug it back in and turn on.

Your best bet is to add more RAM. You need more than 512mb for video encoding and recording. The more the better! A really good site for finding out what you need is

How do I access the bios at startup, On A Insignia D400A? I see no prompt or keys, to activate Bios.

Insignia is a Best Buy proprietary brand. In order to get you to spend money at the geek squad, they keep this information pretty secret. Hit "F1" during POST. That should do it. It works on most Insignia models. If not, you should call best buy and ask them about your specific model.

Try reseating the RAM. If you have multiple sticks, take them all out and add one back. If you have video again, add them back one at a time until it fails. If you don't have video, take that stick back out and put in another.
