Right after I tried adding more RAM (2 extra 16 MB Simm sticks), my computer hasn't booted up since. I figured it was because I added more so I took the two sticks away and just kept my originals. I noticed the computer beeps change depending on how I arrange the sticks. Once it was a continuous blinking beep of five (I know the motherboard didnt like that, so I changed the position and now it is one long beep and 3 short ones. (some say this means a keyboard error but I doubt this) To add to the confusion my screen says override DPMS. Anyone know how to override the DPMS when the screen is black and wont do anything? I am a novice at computers and this was my first time touching the ram. Im afraid I might have damaged something. please help. Thanks

it's in the bios, there's a setting there in the power management section, you set the video off method to V/H SYNC+BLANK. that should take care of that problem. you don't say what brand computer or motherboard though, so, just a generic way to get to the bios, hit del key you get to the bios screen when it checks memory.
use the + and - keys to change the setting, use the arrow keys to navigate then save your settings and it will reboot.

When the computer experiences any jerks or sudden movements, the screen becomes blank with DPMS GOING TO OFF MODE. It then turns itself off. Help
