Default computer boot trouble

First off heres my system specs,

AMD 64 3200+
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum
Antec 500W power supply
ATI Radeon X800 AGP
Sony DVD +/- RW
4x Kingston 512MB

okay now for the problem,

just this morning, my computer was on, fine and dandy, but when i started playing World of Warcraft, the latency was super high. I decided to restart my computer. When i did, the computer powered on, beeped, all the fans we're running, but the screen just stayed on the "Platinum" screen where you can either hit tab to start POST or delete to enter BIOS, i tried both, keyboard didnt respond, tested keyboard on my friends comp, worked fine, can open/close the dvd drive, all the fans are spinning and everything but it just sticks at that screen. What am i to do?

It's possible the RAM is the cause.
