after installing ram upgrade computer does not boot.

I have an acer 7200D, and it wont start now.
I am preety sure I musty have fryed the motherboard.
I bought a stick of 512 DDR ram yesterday, I poped it in and the PC would not post.
The fans turned on but there was no beep, I toook outthe new ram, placed the old ram, and same thing.
So I disconected everything except mobo, ram processer and video card, but no post.
I reset the CMOS, same thing. Tryed different video cards, same thing.
So it must be the motherboard is bad, the processer is bad, my ram got runined or the power supply went out.
I doubt its the power supply, probibly the motherboard in my opionon, i might have shocked it.
And also the ac is out at my house so it was super hot in here, probly betweeen 80-90, so the temp also might have contribnuted to the loss of my gaming pc. Its also humid as I live in st louis by two huge rivers. So thats the story, any suggestions? Should I just buy a new motherboard processer and ram? Thank you for reading my question.

Are you getting any kind of beeps, indicating an error, or absolutely nothing at all?

The RAM slot may have been damaged in transition.  If you remove everything but the cpu, do you get beeps on powering up?  You should get a code indicating RAM failure or missing RAM.

Try a different ram slot if you have one. Or buy a can of compressed air blow out ram slot is could have dirt in there. Also check pins in slot mabye you bent one.

BTW humidity is good it basically eliminates the chance of you runing computer from static shock.

NO beeps at all, fans turn on, then no post, no video, tryed agp video card and a pci.

I cleaned the ram slots, disconnected evrything except cpu and power button, and no beeps.

You should check the power supply, even if you don't think it's the problem.  Swap it out, because these units do fail and would give you the symptoms you describe.

Whatever it is, it's part of the motherboard, most likely the RAM slots.  You're going to have to replace it.
