Month Long RAM troubles

  1. as the title says, i brought a 1GB DDR PC3200 ram stick from Buffalo a month ago. I've search countless hours trying to get answers on how to get this thing working. trust me it's been 2 years since i built this computer and only 7 months since i've been able to use it. I've tried to upgrade so many times and only to fail in the end.


    This time im not giving up. I've upgraded my bios and tried everything told on previous websites but i cant get this stick to boot to the Windows Load screen. all it'll do is go through the whole bios screen and etc and then the screen goes black, but when it goes black, it kinda has that eerie glow(Kinda like when you first load up a game right before it shows the companie's logos).


    Please i beg you mercy. Help me before i take a sledgehammer to this thing!

    Seems as if you have a failing monitor, or a failing video graphics port, rather than any sort of a memory issue.
