Some time ago I added a new video card to my Dell SmartStep 100D and that went fine. In order to install the new video card, in device manager, I simply disabled the video controller that comes standard on that machine. Now I purchased 512Meg of Ram from Kingston Technology, and after I take out the 128Meg that came with the machine and install the new memory, the monitor does not work. It has power, but just never displays anything. I plugged the monitor back into the monitor jack on the motherboard and nothing happens, but of course that is disabled in device manager. I have no idea what to do. do I need a new video card? Did I screw something up when I installed the new memory?
I've read all your other postings about this Dell product, but could not find a similar problem. This machine has been such a nightmare to work with and forget about getting any support from Dell for it.
Thanks, I hope you can help.
