    Hey guys, first of all great that you have this community and thank you in advance for sharing your wisom :)

    I have a question about a hardware issue that I have (I will post my specs below). About a year ago I compiled a decent gaming pc and had it assembled. After about a month, I couldn't get it to boot normally and I got the error 'no video input detected' on my monitor, while everything else seems fine. I'm by no means a computer expert but know just enough of it to take the GPU out and switch RAM sockets, and after doing those things a couple of times my pc worked again just fine.

    Today I got the same error again. In fact, my screen froze into all kinds of colored pixels and nothing worked anymore. When I turned the PC off and on again, I got the 'no input detected' thing again. After taking out the GPU again, clearing dust, checking all cables were connected and reseating the RAM a couple of times it still wouldn't give any signal to my monitor. However when I reseated the RAM again to a socket that I had not tried before, everything now works again flawlessly.

    Now my question is: do you think my RAM might be broken and could it be frying my RAM sockets slowly one by one? I know I should test this by placing the RAM back again but I'm a bit concerned that I might not get my PC to work again when I start meddling around again.
