Friend is having some RAM problems please help - Page 2

You don't need a display to determine if the computer POSTs. You said the motherboard beeped when the RAM wasn't seated successfully. Does it beep at all now?

No more beeps, but still no display.

Try the GPU in a different PCI-E slot, incase of a dead PCI-E lane.

Usually, if the computer beeps after installing ram and won't display ANYTHING, it's due to a bad controller, or more commonly a bad ram module. It's likely he zapped the ram module with static electricity when he was handling it with his bare hands without a ground. Only way to know for sure is to try running the system with a single module that is known to be good. If it runs then I think you can rule out using those other modules.

In your original post you said he got a lot of BSOD. This is most likely caused by having two or more modules that have different timing and voltage characteristics.

His PC is prebuilt, so it's pretty bare bones. Generic ddr3 1600 ram, not sure about his PSU, and only one pci-e x16 slot.

This is the same ram he's always had. Had been working fine for the past few months, started getting more and more BSODs, so he took out the ram, didn't put it all the way in, tried to start the computer which is why he got a bunch of beeps, then properly seated the ram, and it ceases to display. He's never adjusted anything in the bios, so I'm assuming removing the battery would have no effect. Guess he must have zapped it with static electricity then, hmm..
