So wait, just to be clear-- while your computer was running, you opened it up and began to wiggle the ram......

A computer needs ram to function, the computer will not work without ram. So when the computer is running and you WIGGLE the RAM, IT IS MORE THAN NORMAL FOR IT TO STOP WORKING. Why you thought this was a good idea is beyond me, what issue were you having that, though your PC was working, that you wanted to open the running computer and play around with the components.

If I am understanding this correctly, you wiggled your RAM while your computer was powered on, and then the display went dark?

Don't wiggle the RAM. Take it out and place it back in, tell your MB to FIRMLY GRASP IT.
