General Specs :
MOBO - Intel (Essex) Pentium 4 - 2.4 GHz [Part #2516241]
Storage – Western Digital Caviar SE 160GB -
Video Card - NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti4200 128-MB AGP Graphics Card [Part #6002247]
Memory - MEM DDR 512MB PC266B 32X8 R0 [Part #5000584]
160-Watt Power Supply
After I updated the memory the computer didn’t start, so I replaced the old memory thinking it should return to normal. However, when I powered the PC its boots but no video, the light on the monitor is steady amber, no picture. My first thought was the video card but when I tried it on another computer it works fine. So I decided to post. What am I missing guys?

does the on-board video card work when you take out the GeForce video card and reset the BIOS?

Are you 100% sure the RAM is fully seated and in the correct RAM slots?

I am doubtful that you or a friend has another system that you can test your card in.
