let me put it this way, when the pc posts, it looks for RAM and video first, if they are defective or it can not initialize either it will bbep a code. so I have gotten to the point that when I hear the beeping I auto think ram or videoe, 90% of the time it is ram, the rest a vid card that needs reseating.

anything can happen, but a general no, ram can not ruin a memory slot.

You know the old ram works right, so try using that first, try different mem slots if it doesn't work in the first on. If this works or doesn't work pop that one out and try another stick of mem, same thing, try different slots and see if anything happens. If it still doesn't work it is probably you video card.

Well the only thing I can think of is that either the video card is bad, the cpu and or mobo are bad, or something is wrong with your power supply....but I doubt it is your power supply.

Yeah well I talked to one buddy and he got stumped brang it to a company and he said most likely its the mobo that shorted out i could have not pushed the ram allt he way down and shorted the mobo when i turned it on, i bought a new mobo and a new power supply cause i needed a new one anyways should get them in in a day or so (can only order my stuff over the net retail stores dotn carry what i need)

if i fix it ill come back and let you all know it was the **** mobo (my fault really cause i was dumb and didnt push the ram in all the way DOH)
