I messed up

(Solved) Alright, I know most people will be like "this guy always has something wrong with his PC". I messed up.
I was playing ArmA 3 on a public server and then my ArmA crashed. I accessed the crash log and the last log was "ran out of memory" so I thought may be installing a new RAM will be a good idea.
I opened my cabinet, installed the RAM, reconnected the PC. When it tried to boot it up nothing happened. Just a green light flashed everytime I hit the power button just after reconnecting the power supply. I thought it was CMOS so I removed CMOS and tried to boot it up. No improvement. Interchanged the RAMs in their respective slots and fired the PC up. Now CPU starts and I can see the components working (all the fans and stuff) but the monitor immediately switches to "power saving mode". I tried at least 20 times to reconnect the power cable. I changed the power cable. Nothing works.
I still have a lot of mods to download. (12.81 GB though I told one of my friends to download 7.7GB cup_terrain_core so I can get the mods on time. That leaves me with 4-5GBs of mods). I planned to download the remaining 4-5GBs of mods by leaving my PC for overnight downloading (Getting 60-80Kbps. FML)
Conclusion - Need help with my PC. Status on Saturday night OP - Uncertain.

Sorry to bother. AGAIN


Have to try and you won't have to fail,
If you're afraid to fly then i guess you never will,
You hide behind your walls of maybe nevers,
Forgetting that there's something more than just knowing better,
Your mistakes do not define you now they tell you who you're not,
You've got to live this life you're given like it's the only one you've got,

Try putting one stick of RAM in and seeing if it boots? If it doesn't try another one.

Always the ram except of when it can be everything else.

An example, If i disconnect my pc for an hour then try to turn it back on it wont show me anything but black screen. That has to do with my CMOS and my Graphics cards power programs. Remove the CMOS battery wait a couple mins and place it back in gives me access again, Now problem is i have to set up again a few of my BIOS settings for profiles and OC. Thats ok how many times can this happen you would say...  Well happens every couple months on clean up day.
