your computer won't boot with no ram installed all you'll get is beeping.  you have to have at least 1 ram stick installed.

I'm guessing here but it sounds like the unit has integrated video, meaning it needs SOME memory on the board to get any BIOS display.  If you reseated the memory and still no display, I'd need much more info on the units specs.  CPU, MOBO, memory, video card or other cards mounted.

The plastic holders for the memory cards are prone to fracturing and breaking, especially the parts that clip in place as the clips can break off and this results in the card not fully being seated in the connector.  It is also possible that the removal of the memory allowed dirt  into the connectors.
