Check the motherboard manual, there should be LED diagnostic lights or beeps. This can help diagnose the problem.

With that said, it sounds like it could be a PSU problem. If possible replace with a known good PSU. Other than that you can try reseating the RAM in a couple different arrangements and see if you can get any further.

Count yourself lucky this time round, because forgetting those has been known to short-circuit the board.
Please take more care next time round.
