Hi all, it's my first post on this forum.
I just bought a new video card, a Peak ATI Radeon X1950 Pro (Pci), Together with a 2gb DDR2 RAM Bank.
First i tried to install the RAM, but i noticed that the "attachment" is not compatible with my motherboard. Maybe it's a new standard, but this new RAM bank has that little tiny "hole" right in the middle of it, while my already attached RAM has that little "hole" a little to the left. Thus, this RAM cannot physically be attached. All right, i inserted again my old RAM, and proceeded with the video card installation.
I removed my previous video card (an ATI X800) and inserted the new one.
However, my motherboard (an ASUS P5RD1-V) did not give any beep (usually, 1-beep = no problems) and the screen remained black. I tried to remove the video card and the RAM and i re-inserted them, but now my motherboard gives out a single beep (like always did, no problem here) and after a few seconds another one, short as the first one.
The screen remains pitch black.
I tried to re-insert the old video card and all goes well.
I tried to explain my problem to the best of my abilities, i hope it was clear enough for i am not an expert.
Can someone help me? Sad It was my christmas present and i would like to make it work, if possible.
Thanks in advance Smiley
