ok for the RAM place it in the slot first them press down on both corners at the same time now if it feels nasty and nothing clicking turn it around and try the other way make sure the white clips are still in the out position.

and the reason i wanted your motherboard make etc is so i can help find a graphics card theres different ones according to the type of slot on your motherboard so not all ones will work.

you can push hard ifs a 2002 pc so the slots will be stiff anyway and normally require more force. If it wont go it wont go just try the other way a few times as well.

oh in that case it most likly is the graphics card theres power so thats a good sign the no signal just suggests the graphics card has died or a small very slim chance that the cable isnt working but thats very unlikly.

so you left it out? ok so when you put it back beeps start? if so then that`ll be the problem.

Now as I said before there are different slots for cards depending on your motherboard theres:

PCI (not likely your card because 2002 is recent)

AGP(could be this but theres different versions which is helpful to know)

PCI - express ( dont think it will be this as wasn't around till after 2002)

If you dont play games then you could get a card very cheap not sure how much in $ but probably about $30-60.

Now im off to bed its 2am here and I have work tomorrow, post back and i`ll reply as soon as I can or someone else will.
