I have a huge problem I'm hoping someone can help me with or I'm off to Best Buy!
I purchased 512mb RAM for my Dell Dimension 4400. I bought it at Office Depot after they looked my computer up on their system to give me the right one. I opened up the computer took out my 128mb ram and inserted the new 512mb (I have 256mb in the other slot).
When I closed the tower and powered on my computer, my monitor gave me the "No Signal" screen as if the computer were on standby. The PC itself seems to be on, the green light is on, I hear the fans working, and the CD tray opens and closes.
I then powered off the computer and removed the new memory and reinserted the old memory. This did not correct the problem. I called the Dell support line and the technican had me remove and reinsert my graphics card. That did not work and he had no other answers.
I've tried my computer on two other monitors and gotten the same result. My only thought is that the memory somehow damaged my computer but I'm by no means an expert. Any suggestions? If I do need to replace something, will it be very expensive? Thanks.
