what would the ram sticks have to do with anything?
As I said I tested the computer at my house. The DVI connection does work because I used my monitor.
I found a VGA cable so I am going to take it to his place and try it.
Already tried all the inputs on the TV.
TV itself works fine - satellite, cable, movies, etc.
He said before it totally went black the screen was messing up.
Something tells me it's the cable. Because if the onboard display was failing, the DVI wouldn't work either.
