No memory? = no Monitor SIgnal?

Hi i just finished working on my computer, however I had to send back RAM to tigerdirect cause I chose to get 4GBs instead of 2, i assembled my computer and all, when i plug it into the Video card (with the VGA adapter) and hook it up to my monitor i have no signal...

Problems that i think are causing this?:

1) NO RAM!!
2) Cant use video card unless Driver is installed


if my hypothesis is right bout the no ram part then i guess i'm good, if not then i'll need to get a HDMI to VGA adapter .


please some one help, i really think its cuz of the no ram thats why i'm not getting a signal

  1. Nope, nothing is going to happen (except a series of beeps if you have a speaker hooked up).
    Your video card does not need a "driver" for the POST screens. The driver is strictly for the OS.
