i was messing with just about everything, i was swapping cd drives, harddrives, ram, messed with video card, everything.

most likely you have something hooked up wrong ,for anyone here to tell you what you pronlem is we would have to be a Wizzard!
Try atarting over making sure you has drives that need to be master or slave set right ,make sure the primary ied and secondary ied are plugged in to the righr socked ,and hope you didn't fry your ram playing with it.

What is the type of your motherboard .... how many beeps do you hear when the computer starts ?? if less than three ... it's a ram error ... or otherwise check your video card.

idk what kind of motherboard it is, its a gateway computer. there is no beeps when the computer starts. i dont think its the ram bc i put them in my other comp and they work fine
