    Is this pc one you built or retail set up
    Do you have manuals, bios info etc

    You should reset cosmo again and before you turn on power again remove memory remove suspect video card ( when removeing mem etc make sure power is off ok to leave pluged in turn off power switch on back of pc , If left pluged in you maintain ground which is good will help prevent electro static shock)

    Try to post up, and check pc to see that all fans are running etc.
    ok to leave case open ,just dont touch anything while powered up.
    you will have beep codes due to missing mem and video card and possilbly any other problem devices,
    I would forget about your new stick of mem for now


    After post up and check of pc
    Reinstall original stick of mem
    Install basic video card if you have one otherwise try install the one you have unless it was very hot ,smoking etc ( could be TOAST????)
    then try to post up & enter bios make necessary changes
    OK i took out the video card and original mem jumped the cmos booted up beeped. shut down put the mem and video card back in booted up beeped. all my fans run hard drive starts cd rom's.lights come on just won't post and it was the 2700 ram that got smoken hot.So i think i cooked my old mem stick 2100 to, thought i was grounded enough but i guess not.And yes i built this computer.If there's no mem i can't get in to cmos right?

    You should be able to get in bios, I was able to access bios with memory failure, if I remember wright I had to reset cmos first so put your old stick in and try, maybe still good, is normal for ram to get little hot
    My board I just hold down delete key got right in ,I belive some boards is F1??? have to hit the right spot or time or just try holding down when power up.:hammer:

    Sounds rite
    Shouldnt matter which slot for mem when using one stick, I'd go with #1slot
    Please note I'm not familiar with your board I'm one of those Athlon Guy's/ just trying to assist
    Do you have manual for your mobo refer there for mem slots /beep codes/bios access, if not go to mobo web site probably can download there , may be some info or trouble shoot stuff there.

    I dont know for sure what your beeps represent if it is memory you will get till you correct the problem you must access bios correct memory timings voltage etc first, if that is the problem.

    When you power up do you see anything on screen or are only getting beeps

    One Example of memory failure= post up see misc screens then hear beep codes screen may go black then not being able to repete process or access bios, I had this problem (ASUS board Athlon cpu) solution was reset board/ cmos power up hold delete key entered bios and change my memory settings to user defined and relax timings.
    Prior to that I thought my video card was bad, and memory failure, as turned out video card was fine

    one of your previous posts refers to reset cmos and removing battery in and out , For my board, to reset, both must be done!

    you may have different problem?? but if your pc worked prior to you adding memory, the problem must lie there, It also does not hurt to check, all cables, hardware memory seating ,video card seat, everthing,
    the only other Static shock hope all was grounded or that other mem has dammaged your board
    :flames:

    I resolved the problem i put my new stick in but it was still beeping so out of frustration i pushed down on the mem stick till i thought the motherboard was going to snap, turned the power on booted up a yes it started up, The dam mem stick wasn't seated all the way, so i did the same with my old stick and it works to so now i have 512 memory, Thank you for the information.

    Thanks to you and all of you who replied to my problem.

    HAPPY NEW YEAR
