Did you have the power supply plugged into outlet or did u unplug it before you attempted this?
Did you try to turn the tower on even though the ram stick didn't fit all the way?
You might have fried one of the prongs I have seen this done before people try to replace the memory with out unplugging the unit therefor shorts the slot and ram stick.
