I wouldnt think so

I wouldnt think that this would stop the display from showing anything except a nasty little message on the screen signaling you have no RAM, What type of laptop is it tho and i can see if this is correct.

How the **** do you loose pieces of RAM that are in your computer? :)

it was given to me, i didnt realize the ram wasnt there until i opened it today. its a gateway 3255GZ. i was told it might be because there was no ram. someone let me borrow a ram chip today, im just awaiting on a charger to find out it that really is the deal here

That may only be the RAM expansion slot

likely the motherboard has at least a basic amount of RAM.
As others have suggested try the external monitor.

Or you could plug in an external Monitor to the VGA Port

And see if that produces a picture of anything.

Was there any different "beeps" that the laptop gave out?

by DadsPad In reply to Help please

These "beep" patterns can tell you diagnostic information.

Of course, hooking up an external monitor would be the first thing I would try, but that was already mentioned. :)
