Ok so I was watching a movie on my 2nd screen which is my TV on this case, right on the exact same moment the movie ends my computer goes into somewhat "hibernate" mode, the case lights just keeps flashing like it was hibernated thats why I guessed so.

Both screens were showing nothing so I assumed was hibernated after trying to move the mouse, so I pressed the turn off button which restarted. The computer turns on but nothing on the screen, I unplugged my 2nd screen but cuz I thought was it, but still nothing.

This happened to be before and i just replaced the RAM and it worked, with my old RAM/GPU that is.

I tried everything i could possibly think of.

Things that I have tried:

- Remove all the RAM, can't hear any beep at all.
- Tried another GPU that im pretty sure its not broken and everything was the same.

Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz
500 watt NOX - PSU
