Thanks for confirming the computer was the correct one :thumbsup:

If this means that you have two HDDs and an add on video card fitted it may explain your problem if you have not also upgraded the stock 250W PSU (power supply unit).

Can you provide the details of both the PSU and add on video card, brand and model name or number of both please.

NB: Can I ask you to use the edit tab, bottom right corner of the page if you have additional information to add before you have received a reply to your last post, this will avoid filling up peoples mailbox, thanks.

i meant i bought an extra one that i can install if you want me to test, i recently tested the ram by taking out one stick and turn it on and that seems to have been a bad ram card so i have went and bought a new ram card and it seems to work fine, i will be getting the new power supply to install the graphics card next week most likely so i don't try my mother board ( 250 peak) card required 300) so it is all working now thank you :)

Thanks for clarifying :thumbsup:

Let us know when the new PSU is fitted and you are up and running or if you have any questions.
