Having problems with your Dell Dimension 9150 (DIM915MIN) PC Desktop ?

I have a dell Dimension 8250 and replaced the memory cards with a higher memory. I got a memory error beep code so I replaced the original. I'm still getting the beep code. Any ideas? I was careful removing and installing and the cards so I don't think that I physically broke anything.

Trying to find out what needs to be replaced on my dead computer (I think it may have been lightning / power failures that caused the desktop to die). I have power, but no beeping and no start-up. Fans power up, but nothing on the screen. Not sure if it is a power supply problem or a Motherboard problem. How can I find out what easily (ie I don't have any meter devices to check power) what the problem is? Motherboard is an IBM, 2.8 Ghz, with 2 Gig Ram, and 40gb Hard Drive. Moth

The computer is an HP a123on. This one has a continuous one second beep, with a one second pause. The cables have been checked, as well as the memory for connection. Could the recent graphics card addition and removal be a cause? Would new drivers for the new card need to be installed prior to installing the new card help, if/when the computer starts?
