Probably not

Are you absolutely sure the RAM is going into the slot with the two clips clicking into place over the appropriate slot on the RAM?

I'm asking this as there was a guy who said his graphics card was not working, he kept saying he'd plugged it in properly, he'd plugged it in next to the slot, not in it.

Was the machine still on when you messed with the RAM?

Was the battery still in it?

Sounds like you have shorted the ram sticks take them out and smell the chips to see if you can smell burning why did you take them out anyway?

Is the CPU fan spinning ? You may have jogged the power cable for the fan ?

Ram shouldn't be that sensitive.

Try keeping one RAM strip that came with the laptop inside. Then insert the new ones. See if that fixes it.
