ok well now i have a new problem, the bios screen that normally shows up for a few seconds when booting up doesnt appear, then when windows tries to start, a blue error screen saying that windows was shut down to prevent errors appears. the only thing i did was move my ram into different slots, shutting down and unplugging the computer of course. if i dont have this fixed tonight im just gonna go exchange it tomorrow where i got it from, since it has a store warranty.

edit: the bios shows up, i just somehow didnt notice it after 2 restarts

edit again:well windows started normally now, so maybe the ram wasnt in right or something
