Default Comp starts up but monitor/keyboard/mouse etc. don't

Hi guys, I just bought some new ram today and thought I had installed it correctly but now whenever I try to start up, my comp turns on and the fans work etc. however my monitor/keyboard/mouse etc. are not turning on at all.

I have a ASUS P5K SE/EPU mobo, Antec 500w powersupply, Nvidia 9600gt video, I can't remember my exact CPU but it's a Intel Core 2 Duo @3.16 GHz I believe.

The ram I bought is: G-Skill PK Series DDR2 1066 (PC2-8500) 4GB.

I have had this comp for almost 3 years now without many troubles.

Another thing I noticed and can't remember if this was plugged in or not was this cord labeled AC'97 in the mobo.

Thanks

The connector is for sounds, if you have an hd audio connector then you dont need it but if you dont you should plug it in as for your problem the ram is compatible with your motherboard ... try putting one stick in and bootin and switching slots and sticks

well usually theres a set of slots that need to be filled in order to boot, you can find them in the manual, and if you find that it works with one of the sticks and not the other, then that stick is probably bad
