are you sure that the new ram was compatible with your motherboard? if it wasn't (i.e. wrong size or wrong configuration) you could have done some serious damage to your motherboard....

make sure the old ram is in the right way and well seated...then, with the computer unplugged..remove the CMOS battery from the motherboard and hold the power button in for a few seconds...put the battery back in and turn the pc on...any better?
