I've read many threads regarding pc won't boot after adding RAM, my case is also like this and even worse, i can't get my pc showing the BIOS bootup as in nothing at all. i've interchanged 1st RAM into the 2nd slot, sitting the new RAM on the 1st slot (2RAMs sitted) and vice versa; trying only 1 RAM at a time on the 2 two slots; putting the original RAM that came with my PC back into the slot, still, nothing shows. i can't press delete or F8 or F10, etc....are my RAMs burnt out? how can u tell? i didn't see any signs of burnt chip on my RAM, Please help....

Okay this is what you are going to want to do here.

1) Remove all except for one stick of ram. If that one doesn't work try another in a different slot.
2) Remove any addon cards... PCI, PCIe, PCIe x16.
3) Verify that your motherboard has power lights and that the power supply is actually connected to the board (usually in two places).

Does the PC power on? If so, are there a series of beeps? Those usually indicate the reason for an issue.

thanks for the quick response... power is plugged in and there is light on the motherboard and on the casing, i've tried, if any of the RAM whether one or two are sitted on the slot, there are no error beep sound but when i took off all the two RAM, then there is the error beep sound.....

Okay, I would unplug any addon cards... PCI, PCIe, PCIe 16x and try again.

Since your PC isn't posting it can be caused by 4 things.
Bad ram, CPU, Graphics... or motherboard.
Cards that are improperly seated will also prevent a machine from posting... along with anything causing a short in/touching the motherboard.
