Alright, first off...i posted this on a few computer q/a boards a few days ago, still no response. I give it 3 hours before i have an answer, or at least an attempt from here. I have a giga-byte mobo. GA-7VRX ver. 2.0 mobo, and its been either ok, or total ****. This is my first attempt at putting together a computer, so bare with me. When i first put it together it was running fine...but it wasn't enough. Here's what i started at, for financial reasons i didn't move on to what i just got until now.
Gigabyte - GA-7VRX2.0
256mb DDR PC2100
60g Maxtor 7200rpm
MSI 48x CDRW
Matrox 450 millenium (i've had that for a while)
along with all the other basics
Fastforward to last week. Bought a stick of 512mb DDR PC2700, PNY Verto Ti4200 64mb, another maxtor drive, and a 400w PS. Here's the problem:
This is all after attempting to install my new stick of ram. Everything else works fine. First i took out my old 256 PC2100 ram, before installing, at first boot up with the new ram, my monitor is not recognized. The power LED light on my monitor turns green, then fades to yellow, signifying that its not active. After trying another video card, and another monitor (which i know both work), to no avail, i can turn no where else but towards the motherboard. Any ideas as to what is going on? No changes were made to the motherboard other than adding the ram, which has been removed, set back to original hardware placement, which also has no results. Hopefully that made some sense. Thanks in advance for any help.
