Display not working at all

Specs: Windows 7, Core 2 Duo
I was moving my Dell Inspiron 518 and being the clumsy self that I am, I tipped it over. Not very hard, but forceful enough that it may have damaged something...

-The power light comes on (normal blue)
-No diagnostic lights or beeps
-Display does not turn on at all (DVI and VGA). Tried two monitors, both stay in stand by
-Orange light on mobo? Not sure what this is.
-Fans for CPU, PSU, GFX all spinning
-HD is spinning
-Removed GFX card to try onboard video - no dice
-Tried booting with just mouse, usb, and monitor

I'm stumped. What could be the issue?

Check all your connections and make sure you didn't jar the ram loose.

Followed your advice and went the extra yard and reseated all of the hardware and cables. I also cleared the CMOS by removing the battery for 15 minutes. It did the trick!

However, I'm getting a Checksum Error - Defaults loaded whenever I completely remove the power from the computer (i.e - disconnect the powersupply), but not when I simply shut down. Any ideas?
