why did you take it out? Is it the only stick of memory? If it is, put it in a different memory slot. If not a single, take it out and try to boot from the other remaining memory and tell us what happens.

test all sticks in all combinations to get it to boot. if that fails put this stick back in the first slot and reset the CMOS.
