My computer has no video output anymore, nor does it beep when i turn it on so im not entirely sure if its booting at all(custom built pc that has never had a problem since it was built). The last thing done to the computer before it stopped working was a stick of ram was taken out and replaced in the same slot, however upon being replaced it was not clipped in all the way. I took it out and replaced it properly and made sure it was secure but now everything powers up, there are no beeps, and i have no video out. I have read that incorrectly placed ram can fry the slot but there are no signs or smells of anything like that, and all the pins are intact.
things i did.
Correctly replaced incorrectly placed ram
took out ram, turned on computer, no different, off
took out video card, turned on computer, no different, off
switched hdmi cables, tried using the onboard HDMI slot for the mobo
tried all different slots for ram
tried a different video card
tried unplugging cd-rom and hard drive
all have the same result.
Im at a loss.
