After reading some articles, I think one of my RAM bricks are corrupted, but I want a complete answer from you guys.

So here's my story:
My PC lies inside my desk on a shelf. Yesterday I hit my desk with my office chair so it bumped my PC and it instantly shut down. After restarting, the screen was completely black (even the indicator light on my screen went orange, indicating it wasn't connected to anything), so I had to force the computer off once again. The second time I started, it worked and I recovered my PC to a past point (Windows Recovery) and thought everything was fine.

But now multiple issues occurs, based on things not starting and working as they are intended. For instance:
League of Legends wont start after I hit "Play" on the launcher, but it shows under "Processes" at Task Manager.
I can't join or do anything on Battlelog except refreshing the server list.
I can't install any programs, it says the source file is corrupted.

But Steam works, and I can play Skyrim no problem. (Except it crashes kinda often).

Try starting it with just one ram, then swap them to see if there is any problem with one of the sticks.

Usually HDs are more sensitive to bumps than any other piece of hardware.

Yup one of the Memory Sticks were fkd. Two led lights flashed on my motherboard for that one. The other one had one red light but it disappeared after some seconds.

This one I'm using now works fine, but the programs are still messed up. I'll report back here after I try to fix..

Btw. By "HDs" do you mean Hard Drives?

The bump shud not have damaged the RAM ..... try removing and re-inserting all cards, sticks, ..... also....set all BIOS to "defaults" and reconfigure as necessary to match ya hardware.

HDs are Hard Drives when used as an acronym, yes.

They also are likely to take damage from violent movement as mentioned.

The "arm" that reads/writes data on it is a few nanometers above the disk surface so a bump can easily move it that few nanometer distance and cause it to physically touch the disk, creating problems potentially.

Sorry to hear your RAM got screwed up, at least it is cheap.
