Having problems with your IBM NetVista PC Desktop ?

I upgraded the memory to my Netvista computer and salvaged the 512 Dimms to install in an older netvista with 128 mb RAM, but I couldn't get a signal to the monitor and even when I put the original Dimm back in, it became very hot and still no signal. What did I do wrong?


Answers :

If your not getting video with either memory in the computer then my suggestion would be to try one more known working stick.

If you still dont' get video then it would seem to me like the motherboard is bad since its getting very hot. Also check to see if the power supply is getting very hot, if so then change out the power supply to a new one to make sure the system is staying cool.


Probably didn't seat the memory completely. There is no way to tell for sure without physically inspecting your computer.
