I added memory to my computer today and now the computer starts but there is no picture on the monitor.  I am not sure that my connections/cables are connected correctly.  I have an ATA serial cable, two black cables (P9 and P10) and have tried all of the combinations I can think of, but nothing is working

lol. It was the last thing I thought of...I finally figured out that the ram cards needed to snap in further. It scared the hell outta me until I fixed it. But now my PC is has 2.50 GB of ram and is running like a beast. While I was out picking up ram I picked up a new notebook. It's an hp dv9230us notebook PC. Here are the specs on my notebook. How did I do picking out the notebook?  Oh,by the way...I bought two 1 GB sticks of DDR400 PC3200 sticks of memory and the brand was centon from comp USA. I know I could've gotten it cheaper but I got a 30 dollar mail-in-rebate for each card purchased. http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/HP-Pavilion-17-Widescreen-Notebook-PC-DV9230US/sem/rpsm/oid/169877/catOid/-12963/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do

This is exactly what I was going to suggest, although Tommie did already. It is a easy mistake to make. I did and it flipped me out.  :grin2:

Well after all said and done I can't suggest anything on the problem  :icon_scratch: now but you shop like my wife. Go for one thing and come back with a few bags :nono:, but she's my wife. :smitten:

Yeah, it was my wife who wanted the notebook. But boy am I glad she got it. By the way...I have media center on the notebook but I can't figure out how to get it hooked up to a turner after I installed it. Any suggestions? Thanks. :smiley:

Maybe their all alike. The only way I would is use a router for more than one PC and if the laptop has wireless you can use a wireless router.
