Re-seat/gently press down on the RAM and check that everything is seated properly (especially the video card). Make sure the plastic RAM tabs are snugly pressed and locked into the RAM to hold it in place (if it has them). Be sure all the screws are tightened on your expansion cards as well, because that little wiggle can sometimes dislodge them if the computer is moved. After you check those things, let us know how it went.

Just in case you didn't know: Be sure to unplug the power (the thick black cord that goes into the power supply in the back) and touch the outside (metal part) of the chassis before doing anything, so that you don't fry your hardware. (Or use an anti static wrist band if you have one.)
"With care she will grow, from love she blossoms. A thrill to behold, a sight so awesome.
A flower's pure grace, with fragrance so sweet. An enchanting dance, with four little feet."
