Default No video output after checking ram

I was getting the model number off a piece of rdram today, and after putting it back in the slot, i turned on my computer and there was no output to my monitor. Computer turns on and everything, but there is not output. So i unplugged my vga cord and reconnected it and there was a little spark. There was no picture before the spark. Any solutions??

Well the spark is a much more serious problem but you can try reseating the RAM and using a pencil eraser to clean the modules metal connections. If that doesn't work then start trying to diagnose the sparking problem. Always make sure you ground your computer before trying to connect anything.
