well im glad you guys made up lol...there are four memory slots... DIMM_A1 DIMM_A2 DIMM_B1 DIMM_B2 currently the ram is in A1 and B1...the video card is connected directly to the power source it actually takes two plugs and both plugs come from the source the only thing that shares plugs are the cd and dvd drives and the fans

Sounds like your psu isn't putting out enough power.

but once upon a time the computer did work and everything was fine i ever was gaming on it...it wasn't until the fan was installed that this problem arose and it isn't the fans because i unplugged them and tried and the same thing happened.

Buy a new power supply and try it. It doesnt make sense for a cpu or motherboard to short out after installing two case fans. I would say because the power supply came with the case, you may have gotten a dud. They are made very cheaply, and you'll often find they'll be rated a higher watt than they actually are.
