Yes, this is normal. Without RAM, you cannot get a display. Furthermore, if you don't have a motherboard speaker installed, you will not hear the associated beeps indicating that RAM was not present in the POST. You should get a motherboard speaker; it is an invaluable tool in diagnosing your computer.

Motherboard speakers are very inexpensive and can typically be found in computer hardware stores, such as Fry's or Microcenter. If there aren't any shops in your area, just do a google search for "motherboard speaker". You'll find a plethora of options.
