Apparently not! Check all your connections to see if you bumped anything loose when installing the ram.

Before installing or removing any of the memory modules, did you make sure to turn off the computer and unplug the power cord from the power outlet to prevent damage to the memory modules or the CPU's memory controller?

Even when clearing the CMOS there should be no power from the power supply reaching the motherboard.

with clearing COMS however i had to leave it connected to power to get it to work button, at that time i did however have the ram in place
