    I tested out a friends ram, as he was having trouble with it. I installed it and it singed the stick as well as the slot. Preticularly 2 connector pins. After I removed it, plugged everything back in, my keyboard and monitor won't load. I may have accidentally unplugged something but I don't see anything out of place. Any ideas of what's wrong?

    If your "keyboard and monitor do not load" can we assume that your PC is not actually booting? There is a difference, but your post is confusing.

    Have you destroyed the RAM sockets? Do you expect your PC to boot with no RAM, or damaged RAM slots?

    Yes, the computer is not loading. Obviously it can't boot without ram, but only one slot looks damaged. Would that cause all the slots to not work?
