I removed ram while my pc was running and my monitors went blank. I put the ram back in and turned on my pc and the fans, lights and motherboard lights turned on but my monitors are still black😭. I don’t think I fried the motherboard because it still turns on. What do I do 😢?

"I don’t think I fried ..."

You very possibly 'fried' the RAM slot(s). Or the RAM stick(s).


Power OFF
take the RAM out and reseat it
Power UP.

Does it boot up?
No?

Then try each RAM stick individually, in each slot.
POWER OFF WHEN YOU SWITCH THEM AROUND.
