BrynF, if you take the ram out the computer will NOT start up. It wont have sequence beeps if you take the ram out either. Computer can't run without ram. Also, possibly how much ram do you have? Alot of the times if you have a low amount of ram and minimize a game it takes a long time to open back up... could be just a video card problem or not enough physical memory.
