Alright, I got a new video card and some memory for my computer. I got the video card working fine. I'm used to using 1024x768 resolution, and the screen appears really fuzzy with the new card at that size. I'm using 1280x1024 right now, and it appears fine. It'll take some getting used to, but it's no big deal.
Here's my real problem: The memory I got is Patriot Memory 512MB PC3200 400MHz DDR. Those are the same specs as the 512MB stick I have in there right now. I've installed memory on some older computers before, and the computer just started up fine and accepted it. When I put this stick in and start up the computer, the comp just sits there idling and doesn't start up. Power is on, but it is not booting up. There's two little LED's on the front of the comp, a red and green one. Normally the green one is constantly lit up and the red one flashes a little. When I have the stick of memory in, the green light is off, and red one is on constantly...hopefully that will help explain something. I've tried reading the installation guide and Patriot's website, but can't really find any good info.
Any help here would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
