    We sent the computer to Texas to our "tecky" brother-in-law and he said it was the motherboard. Thanks everyone for your help.

Open the computer case back up, after unplugging it. Take new RAM out. Check ALL cable connections inside, also take video card out and reseat it back into it's slot. Now power on computer. If video works then suspect bad RAM. Turn pc back off, unplug, reinstall new RAM, repolace case, but be certain No cable was accidently bumped or jarred aloose. before replacing case, plug pc back in and power on, if it still will not come on, then you have a bad RAM stick. Sned it back for a replacement. I have had a few of these over the years, I hope this helps, but let me know.

I change the ram and since then even with the old ram it just dont want to boot up, it sounds as if the computer is starting but nothing is displayed on the screen its just black, like there is no...


If its a ram problem then you should not get anything out of it at all. If it generates any beep codes or anything then it probably isn't the ram.

First thing to try is reseat the cards and check the ram. You may want to go back to your original ram and see if those work. If it works on the old ram then the problem is either the new stuff being the wrong type , wrong speed, or not being seated properly. Usually its just the wrong type or speed. You may find that even though it says it is the correct thing it won't work. You get that a lot with cheaper ram brands.

Trick is to go back to a working configuration and then change one thing to rule things out.

Monitor doesn't display any information. All hookups are in tact.


While it is still power on, unplug it from the video port of your computer. Can you see anything on the monitor? If so, the problem is with your computer. You need to troubleshoot. First try the monitor on another computer and verify that it's working fine. If it's not, then ask for repair and if it would cost some around $200, I don't recommend, you'll get a bigger and better new monitor for $200.

If you think there's nothing wrong with the printer and is tested ok, then start working with your computer, first try with another monitor and boot up, probably it shouldn't work, if it does, then the cable you were connecting the other monitor must be the faulty.

The best thing you can do with a dead video computer is to re-seat the Rams, Power connectors and Bios battery. First remove the Ram/s and boot again, you'll hear the beeping, means there's no ram installed. After cleaning the ram, again install it/ (if there are multiple rams, install only one), now boot again. same problem, try again with the other ram.
If you see no changes while working with the rams, then it must be the bios or the video card itself. If you have a spare graphics card, try it or if you don't have one, then the only solution is to replace the motherboard.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Monitor won't come on after changing ram.


Make sure that the new RAM is fully seated into the slot. The snap clips on the side will automatically lock in when the ram is fully inserted.

Monitor goes Black off and on .....


I had the same problem for about a week and solved it yesterday by downloading the latest driver by NVDIA who makes my video card (NVDIA GeForce 6200).
I had previously updated the latest Sony driver for the monitor. It did not solve the problem but could be part of the solution in conjunction with the new video card driver.
