two computers and two problems.. help please!!!
I have two problems, with two different computers and i need help!
i have a dell dimension 3100 and a fujitsu Scaleo P P300 both have problems, both computers are quite slow so my hubby tried to build a super computer, but dell doesn't allow you to do this, we tried putting scaleo ram in the dell max ram the dell had is 1.5gb i no it can go up to alot more. anyway ever since then the dell keeps beeping when turned on and nothing works.. the beeps are 1-3-2.. which according to dell is a ram/memory problem, either faulty ram or its not seated properly. my hubby has put the ram in like 100times so i know its seated properly the ram isn't faulty so how can i fix this? there are no loose wires, it doesn't smell funny so its not fried, i don't know what else it can be?
the fujitsu works but i have a wireless problem. seeing as though my dell doesn't work, i took out the linksys wireless adapter wmp54g and put it in the fujitsu, the problem is the computer doesn't seem to recognise the wireless adapter, there is no wireless icon on the network connection folder in control panel. Iv tried setting a wireless connection via wireless network setup wizard, iv tried setting up via new connection, iv tried everything. The wireless adapter isn't coming up in the device manager either, its like the adapter isn't even in the computer, it doesn't come up found new hardware, iv tried going through add hardware nothing works, iv downloaded the correct software. does this mean its not compatible? or im missing the wireless drivers for the computer? im so confused!! help please
ps: both are on windows xp home, iv also looked in bios. is it worth taking them both to a computer shop?
