If you're lucky, it's just the power supply. Can you get hold of another to replace yours to test?

It depends what fans are running, since some will be powered directly off the power supplier.

I get the impression from your previous posting that the hard disks are not starting up, if that is the case, you may well have blown something on your power supplier.

Earlier you stated a burning smell, were you able to trace roughly where it came from?

If your power supply has gone, it would be hard to put an exact cause on the reason why it failed.

Normally if memory isn't insert correctly, the computer won't start, or will beep.

I can only guess something shorted against the new memory chip, or wire got caught or damaged while you were replacing your memory.

Its a tough one to call Aaron and i would be more inclined to go with
coincidence unless the memory was installed with a hammer Wink
