It sounds like you did not have the ram seated correctly and it shorted out maybe damaging the mobo. The beeping occured because the system could not find usable memory.
What fan did not come on? If its the cpu fan don't turn it on untill you find out why maybe a loose connection
You could try the original ram in another slot but if the cpu fan does not come on when you power on shut off right away.
If the cpu fan does not start after checking the connection and there are no beeps most likely blown mobo

I had a power supply go POP once, followed by white smoke curling out.
But yeah Doby is right it definetley sounds like you shorted it out.
