LOL! Thanks for my first good laugh of the day. Sounds like your nick suits you.
well i dont know what he did but he put it in turned it on, saw i was pissed, turned it off and put the other one back in
Sounds like you were right it probably wasn't the correct memory. Hopefully, we can fix it by just clearing the BIOS. Disconnect the power, remove the cover. Look for the battery (usually a nickle size watch style battery). Remove the battery for at least five minutes. Replace the battery, then reconnect the power, and reboot (cross your fingers).
nothing. the lights come on, the fans come on and nothing else happens. the monitor is blank and it doesnt make that noise it makes when it is loading everything. does anyone know what can be done about this?

First, make sure the RAM was put back in correctly (slots aligned) anf that it's firmly seated in the slots. Also, if there were a lot of dust in the system and it wasn't removed, it could have contaminated the contacts. With the power disconnected, try using a Q-tip and rubbing alchohol to clean the contacts.
Finally, if none of that works try leaving the battery out overnight. Sometimes a corrupted BIOS can be stubborn to clear.
