First off, take the new ram out and put the old back in and see if it boots, or some problem exists. Then try just the new ram, without the old if that works.

Where did you get the new ram, and are you sure it is compatble with your mobo and the other ram? Mixing types is not advised.

:woot: ok so maybe you are an idiot :tazz: joke

maybe you put the ram in a wrong position or maybe you just accidentaly "tick" your video card or something was just out of place or just .... anything ....

ok I'll explain something although i think you know....

if you put your ram in a wrong position then your ram is "RIP"
means your ram is dead... or maybe you didn't lock your memmory to those white thing's

you kiled your ram 'o' huh "murderer"

just kidding.. :)

ok then if you turn your computer on and there is somekind of beeping then maybe your video card is damage or the plug from the monitor to the video card is is not plug....

but if you have a built in mother boared.... try placing your ram in a different socket.... or ....
try cleaning your board a little,.... sometimes cleaning helps ..... especially the ram socket...

hope this helps...

Nicolas :)
