  1. I am a mobile DJ and was working at the time of this and unsure of what happened and how I fixed it and want to make sure it doesnt happen again.
    This computer is not a stationary computer.. moves from job to job daily

    What would happen if ram was disconnected and you tried to boot computer?
    Would it look as if the computer was booting except no video to monitor...Beeping

    At 9:55 I get a loud POP music goes dead, screen goes blank:
    Start system checks, All working including cpu
    just no video to monitor, check all connections, everything ok

    Open cpu check hdd connections, video card etc...
    when comp starts everything working except screen, hearing a beeping noise during boot-up
    take out video card change slots, then I pushed down the ram cards(unsure if they were loose), double checked the connections to the hdd.
    Computer boots as if nothing happened.
    Only thing I can think of is Ram came loose during movement of equipment and I pushed it back in.
    Dont know what happened or what I did to make it work again.


    Was this the situation of ram coming loose?

    I'm thinking it would have been, but you said you checked the ram right? Did it click when you pushed on it, if it did then you have your answer.

    I am so not sure. I was scrambling to get back up and running and at the time I did push them down I was also changing the video card slots back to where they previously were.
