And static electricity can also be an issue for most components.

Well, I just checked the CPU and I think I saw some bent pins on the edge of it, where I held it.

Can you take a picture of it and post it on here?

I would expect it to be very obvious. If they were bent a little before you clamped the CPU back into the socket then the pins would not have lined up with the holes and would most likely have been flattened.

I can't do it right now unfortunately, I'll see if I can get a image of it tomorrow.

I took the PC to a repair shop and he told me that it's either the CPU or the RAM. I have a strong feeling it's the RAM because before it stopped working I ran a memory test and my PC kept crashing during the test. Do you think it's the RAM?

I got it wrong, there weren't any bent pins, I must of been seeing things since there weren't any when I took it to the shop.

Thing is, if it is the ram then it would be crazy odds for both sticks to fail at the same time. And it should have booted with 1 stick.

Can the RAM sticks be anywhere in the slots or do they have to be in certain slots?

I just installed a brand new stick of RAM without the old ones in and it didn't fix the problem, still no display on the monitor. Do you think it's the CPU?
