Because of health problems, I could not work on the computer untill, this week> somebody told me, that all the rams have to be the same size.. So I took out the two 256 rams, and tried the 1g rame buy itself> The computer make a nose, and the monitor, said it was working> So I tried, the 1,g ram, in all the four slots, didn't work. I tried, different ways, with the four slots, At best, the new ram does not show up. Now I discovered, that one of the old 256 ram,is dead. did bestbuy, give me the wrong ram> I talk to a geek, it said I could used it, and a same guy, said it would work> Is their something wrong with the ram, or do I need two 1g and ditch the 256 one.

You have 4 slots and each slot can support 4 gigs so you can have 16 gigs of ram total. I like corsair or Kingston ram the best. And when you are buying ram you want to look at three things. First is the type of ram which your type of ram is ddr2, second is ram speed which is measure in mhz you want the highest mhz you can get and last is latency, which you want the lowest latency you can get :) hope this helps. Visit newegg.com they have great deals its where i buy all my computer parts from :)
Actually your computer does have 512 RAM. The 64 MB discrepancy is what the graphics memory uses. 64 + 448 = 512, get it?
If you want it to show full 512 MB, you need to install a separate video card. Refer to your PC's manual and see if it has a separate AGP or PCI-E slot.
If it has then you can choose from the many available in the market.
You can choose between having a low end low cost or a high end one designed for gaming. Just choose what suits you best and remember that a higher power card requires proper cooling and higher wattage PSU (power supply).
Note that no matter how much RAM is installed, some portion of it will be used for graphical operations.
OK when you increased the ram from 512 to 2G, your hands usually bump the video card and loosen the connection... Crack open your PC again and re seat the video card... This is all pertaining if you have a separate video card in that computer. Just unplug the video card and re snap it in.
well if you overclocked you video card you have to increase your video card voltage by using bios for not having a crash. this could be as well your overclocking problem. try to use your default video card clocks and sea what will happen. it could be becouse your psu is low on power four your computer components.
