check to make sure that you didn't unseat your video card when you were monkeying around inside the computer....and what do you mean by "have a look at my ram"?

claims to have integrated graphics installed... do you have two places to plug in a monitor in the back? (one near the top..and then your graphix card that you took out)

ok...unplug teh computer from the wall...open it up and take the CMOS battery out (looks like a watch battery)..hold the power button in for a few seconds...put the battery back in and turn the machine on (have the monitor plugged into the other video connection....not your video card...the one built into the motherboard) anything?
