Monitor - No Display w/RAM


Recommended Posts

Attempting to upgrade RAM from 2gb to 4gb, but when the Corsair ram is connected monitor remains blank & LED continues to blink (versus the solid green when working). Computer appears to be booting (all lights come on & recieve the 'windows didn't not shut down properly' message), but can't confirm since monitor isn't working.


Any help would be appreciated!


Test done:

*Monitor works in original configuration after Corsair ram is removed.

*Unpluged monitor, dialog box appears with "No Connection".

*All configurations of the ram modules yeild the above result (4 combined, 1 Corsair module, etc.).


Replacement Ram: Corsair TWIN2X4096-6400C5DHX (2x2 GB)


Original Ram: A-DATA ADQVE1A16K (2x1 GB)

Monitor: Dell CTR M570 (VGA)


Other PC components...

CPU: Duo 2 Core Q6600

Video Card: nVidia 8800GT

Motherboard: ASUS P5N-E 650i

Power Supply: Thermaltake 750W

Only combined memory after PC wouldn't boot on the 2x2gb Corsair memmory modules installed. Then tried single module configurations as well as mixed brand configurations... all tests show that if Corsair memmory is installed monitor does not work.

No jumper reset found in manual for bios, but booted in original configuration, loaded default bios settings, & shutdown (before repost). Replaced 2x1gb @#$% ram with the 2x2gb Corsair ram (made sure I heard the 2 clicks from the clamps during install with each module and confirmed that ram was properly seated) and restarted. Still no display and fans do not slow down after 30 seconds (usually takes 5 in original configuration).
