I don't know where you are located, but consider carefully....you may have 
toasted the A) RAM B) CPU C) mltherboard D) all of the above E) something else 
that is bringing the entire system down.  By putting potentially broken 
components into a good system, you can also toast components on the good 
system. This will cost you more than taking the system into a reputable repair 
shop and having them diagnose the problem(s) for you.  I recently did that and 
I considered the $70 diagnostic fee to be cheap because then I knew exactly 
what to replace.

For future reference, you are best off if when doing something with RAM, you 
get a complete matched set of memory.  Don't mix and match.
