If the system doesn't even run with the old RAM, it looks quite bad 
IMHO. I would have a look in the manual of the machine. Maybe there are 
troubleshooting instructions included for this situation. Other than 
that you could disconnect the machine from the power supply, take out 
the battery and leave it disconnected overnight. Perhaps it will then 
run again (of course after you connected the power).
