Depending of course on what type of computer you've got. But I'd remove then reseat the graphics card for a start.

Are you hearing any beeping?

I would recommend that you also try reseating your RAM since that's what you were working on.

If there are problems with the RAM you would hear some beeping when you are trying to boot. The beeps tell you what kind of RAM problem you are having.

So you took the RAM out and then went for a walk?

before finishing the job?

did you follow proper ESD procedures when handling the memory or for that matter sticking you hand in the computer?

How did you clean it?

by SKDTech In reply to black screen after cleani ...

The preferred method for cleaning most electronics is to use certain types of alcohol due to their quick evaporation and low residue. Why did you walk away before reinserting it into the system? Did you ground yourself before touching the RAM when you returned? Do you have any pets with access to the area where the RAM was left?
