Yes, you need RAM installed to get a "picture". Your motherboard should be beeping non-stop when you attempt to boot without it, is it? If not, do you have a case speaker attached to the board?

✔ Best Answer
You need RAM to do anything. Without RAM your computer is just a collection of electronic components that does nothing.

That is why we have beep codes instead of a more informative error message on the screen. . It is a simple matter for the BIOS to generate beep codes but to do anything more complicated it needs RAM, a CPU and a fully working power supply.
