Power Saving Mode, OS won't boot

By luc_neal ·
I was attempting to add some more RAM to my cpu, I had 256 and was upgrading to 512 (total). After adding RAM and turning cpu back on I smelled something burning. So I immediately tried to turn cpu off, but the power button was unresponsive. I had to unplug it. I removed the RAM and attempted to turn back on and now monitor says power saving mode and I get nothing on the screen. Can anyone help?

Video card?

If the PC is running and no signal is getting to the monitor I would try swapping video cards or if you have on-board video buy an inexpensive card or borrow one and try that. Not sure why memory would cause a video card to crash though.
