PowerBook Video Problem PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!

My beloved PowerBook G3 (Pismo) just reciently got upgraded to 640 mb of ram. It then started having random crashes and video problems. (various lines on the screen. So, I tried swapping the old ram back in. BAD IDEA!!! Now, I get the startup chime, but no video from the the internal screen or the external vga port. I also for some reason get the open firmware to reset. (reset-nvram, reset-all) PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

Never mind...

I must have bumped one of the display wires because I jiggled the wires and than it sprang back to life!

LONG LIVE THE MACINTOSH!!!!!!

that's easy to do on that mac

that's easy to do on that machine. Sure glad you don't have a broken solder joint on your memory socket.
