This perticular model can handle up to 4GB of RAM. There are 2 DIMM slots on the motherboard the lay vertical about 4-5 inches long. Simply push the white plastic clips on each side of the chip and it will eject the chip out. Replace by reversing the process. And be sure to replace with proper RAM that is compatible with that board. Use SIW (free download) to find out which ram you have in it now.

The only real way to testa power supply is to replace it with one known to be working and of a similar wattage, this will tell you if this is the problem.

It sounds like a mechanical failure of the drive tray.
Use a un-bent paper clip and stick it in the tiny hole near the tray of the drive to attempt to prod the tray out of the drive.

Most likely there is something (a CD probably) stuck in the drive.

It may take a good deal of jiggling and bumping of the drive to get whatever is blocking it to come free. Be patient but firm.

Download a DVD, ISO file, from say a torrent site and burn to DVD. You may have to elicit a friends machine to do this. Or purchase a DVD. Also ensure you FIRST get & download ALL the drivers you need from the manufacturers web site.

the pins are on the edge nearest the bottom front of the pc

they normally look like this

Error 680 meals no dail tone!,
1. is the phone cable modem plug into the modem port and the phone jack.
2. do you have a dial tone, when you pick up the receiver.
If you heard a dial tone, is it continuous?
3. are you using DSL Modem? or broadband connection?
If you have another cable available, try it. A bad cable could be the problem.

Next, check the modem. Is it turned on? When you try to dial out, are the lights blinking? If they’re not, the modem might be damaged. If it’s possible, attach another modem to see if that solves the problem.

What's plugged into it?

Your desktop computer does not have a wireless adapter.

Looks promising. It's an INF fie which are driver files. Download, extract, and direct Device Manager where to install driver from. The worst that can happen is it won't install, or you have uninstall / delete. Better than those fake drivers you mentioned.

Check cables, connections, pins, If you have a Graphics Card, reseat it. Sound like a connection or graphics issue. Do you have a can of Electronic's Contact Spray? I use it for cleaning connector, PCI slots, etc., Where copper connections oxidation occurs. May be a simple reset or bad Graphic Card. Hard to say for sure.

Did you check W7 compatibility before install? It is likely that your low-end RAM-based graphics was a bust.
