    Hi. I'm wondering if you damaged the mother board when you replaced the RAM. Where did you get the new RAM?
    Was the new RAM hard to seat in the slots? Did you make sure you were grounded with a electrostatic wristband when replacing the RAM?

    Something may have loosened up, like video card or the connectors?
