Okay, my problem is extremely frustrating because to me (100% Noob) is doesn't make sense.
I bought a cheap computer for $50. You know, just the basics coz I didn't need it for anything extreme.
It had 2 x 64mb SD RAM in it.
Which means my comp was really only JUST coping with XP ontop of everything else.
The technical guy took my computer back to put MORE RAM in because he said he should've put more in there to start with.
Months passed, still didn't get my computer back.
Until I finally get my computer back with absoloutely NO ram in it. At all.
So I borrowed my step-dads 64mb SD RAM to check to see if it was working.. because when we tried his 128MB SD RAM (i think it was that) it just kept making a siren noise.
But as you probably already know, 64mb RAM wasnt enough to cope. It'd boot up, shut down and re-boot because thats all it could manage.
SO! I bought RAM again, my mother suggested 512MB. I did some ringing around, bought it home, put it in and......... NOTHING!
Siren noises and a No signal message.
Took it back, they checked the ram again in their computer and it worked perfectly fine.
So they gave me a 256 SD RAM x 2 to try. It was guarenteed to work.
To my releif, no siren noise.
HOWEVER, now I have "No Signal" on my monitor and can't work out how to bloody fix it.
The strange part is, I don't get "No signal" when the 64MB ram is in there and I can run it in Safe Mode. (Thats what I'm in now).
But if I put 1 or even both of the 258 ram in there the message comes up.
Any ideas?! DESPERATE!
:sad: I've tried:
*Putting RAM in different slots (I have 2)
*Matching a 258mb ram with the 64 .. gets a siren noise.
*Unplugging and re-plugging everything in.
*Made sure all plugs are in properly.
But thats about as far asI can get because I have no idea what im doing.
I figured if someone can help me here, rather then me pay $88 / hour just for a professional to only LOOK at it it'd be a bonus =D ..Because I'm cheap =]
