I replaced the ram with another 256mb. The computer starts up, but it shows nothing on the monitor. the light on the monitor stays yellow instead of green (when everything worked fine and while i was on the computer the light was green). I could actually see the smoke and smell it. I also saw on the ram where it had been burnt and I could see the black spot where the lil golden squares or whatever blew. Well anyways If anyone can help me out I would appriciate it.
I have a new computer now , but I want to try and fix this one so I can add more stuff to it, and upgrade it.
I bought it sometime in 2002...
Its a desk top compaq presario 5000 windows xp home edition
256 mb ram
40 Gb hd
plz help. Thank you.
