last night i open my pc case and when i was unscrewing the heatsink for the cpu i accidently hit my stick of memory with the screw driver pretty hard. I hit the black chip not the green stick itself the black chips themselvs. I knocked it pretty good and after i was done i tried to tun it back on and everything comes on all fans and everything except nothing on screen. I reset the CMOS and i cant get any video or anyting. I get no beeps from the MOBO nothing. please help.....

Board or processor failure. Find another (working) processor from somewhere that fits that board, shove it in, see if it boots. You can then tell which bit's gone.

If you damaged the stick of memory the computer will not boot. The first thing to do is replace the memory and see if the computer will boot.

If they can tell you damaged it, you won't get a free replacement. Lifetime warranties do not cover damage caused by yourself hitting it with a screwdriver.
