Dell Dimension 2400 Powers Up But Doesnt Show Up On Monitor

\015 Sorry for the weird title name, my problem is kind of hard to define in just a title.\015\012\015\012Well A few weeks ago my 8400's HD died on me, so i promptly bought up a pristine condidtion 2400 ( It was $20 if your wondering why ). It worked flawlessly, that is until I had my brilliant idea. I though "Hey, I have 1gb of RAM sitting there from my 8400, why not put it to use?"\015\012\015\012So I opened up my case and made sure I was grounded and removed the RAM from both computers and swapped them. Now when I turn on my 2400 the power light comes on, and also the green light on the inside, my computer it beeps at me 6 so times, the A on the back lights up green whereas the bcd stay yellow, and my monitor doesn't receive any signal from my computer.\015\012\015\012To see if it was any video related issue that caused my problem i hooked up my monitor to my 8400 and alas, it has all the same issues. I have tried switching the RAM back to their respective computers, but nope, no change.\015\012\015\012I have heard that reseating my video card might solve this, but I am not sure, and do not want to mess up anything else.\015\012\015\012Well this is my problem, and I hope someone out the the interweb can help me.\015

Answers :

Seems your new RAM was not compatible but it shouldn't have caused a problem.

Use your original RAM - Is it one stick or two? Take one of your original RAM sticks (or the original one if only one) and seat it in a slot - test it. Move it to next slot - test it etc.
Hello,

I suggest that you put back the memory modules where they were, reboot and enter bios set up and load the default configuration. Have the boot messages displayed so that you can see what is happening.

Hope it helps.
