Hello to everyone, im new here, this is my first post and i need your help.

- My computer haves 4 gb of ram memory ( 2x 2gb ) and i have 2 more free slots so i added ( 2x 1gb ) that made my computer to have 6 gb of ram... well the problem was, when i pushed to power button, my monitor was saying: No Signal, i thought maybe its the cable that connects the monitor to the computer, so i tried with another one but i had the same problem.
When i pulled out the ( 2x 1gb ram) the monitor worked fine.. just like before. Can someone tell me 1.)whats the problem ?, 2.)and how can i upgrade my computer with 6 gb of ram and still my monitor to work fine...
- if any of these matters : my processor is : AMD Athlon™ 64x2 Dual Core Procesor 4400+ 2.31 GHz
my graphic card is : NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GSO 512

- Thank you, and sorry for my bad english . :)

Please perform the following, so that we can get the exact specs of your computer. This will better assist us in helping you more.

Publish a Snapshot using Speccy

The below is for those who cannot get online

Please take caution when attaching a text file to your post if you cannot copy/paste the link to your post, you will need to edit it to make sure that your Windows Key is not present.

The new RAM may not be compatible with your motherboard.

I am not asking for an image. I am asking for the link please follow the tutorial or go by this:

Load up Speccy then go to File then Publish Snapshot from there a window will popup with a link. Select Copy to Clipboard and paste the link here.

Its not your monitor its the fact that you used RAM that wasn't supported. If your monitor was broken it wouldn't work at all.

The monitor has nothing to do with the ram.
