Make sure the RAM is properly seated.

Look on page 2-20 of your motherboard's manual about how to use the MemOK! switch.

Did you plug it in?

Be sure that all connections are snug.

This is your computer that isn't turning on? Did you connect the correct power cords? 24 pin, 4-pin and/or 6 pin GFX power. Fans starting up? Any beeps?

Did you try plugging the monitor into the onboard video without the graphics card installed?
