Well, I already figured out why the ram doesn't work.. my PC's ram was PC100, this stick is PC133.. and a 512mb 168pin stick of pc100 is $35 more than the already $65 pc133, Now onto the video card.. I bought this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814102477 (ATI 9800 Pro) and installed it in my computer, and everything was going fine until I tried to install the drivers. Right after the install wizard started and the ATI screen popped up, my monitor went blank and a cursor started blinking in the top left corner. The only way to get out of it was to do a cold reboot. Anyone know what I can do?
