Hi im kind of new to computer parts, so i thought as long as a ram stick fits in the slot it would work. i got Corsair Vengeance 16GB ram and put it in my asus m4n68t-m series mother board and i dont think it is compatible because when i turn my computer on all the fans and lights turn on but my monitor is black. i put my old ram back in but the screen is still black. please help

check your motherboards' parts-upgrade compatibility..
might as well, what you have right now, isn't compatible..

just make sure, before buying or anything, you check what is just supported by your current unit..

A number of reasons;
1 You might have damaged something while working inside the case.
2 You may have knocked something loose while working inside the case
3 Possibly damaged mb slots when installing ram

Do the following;
1 System OFF and ALL pw removed, remove the ram that did work and reseat each ram chip. Make sure it is fully seated. In addition, make sure ALL pw connectors to the board are secure. I would reseat at the very least the atx and aux pw connectors.
2 Clear cmos or as asus calls it RTC. Use the jumper to clear rtc. Read your mb manual as to where the jumper is located
3 Replace jumper to the keep position.
4 Pw ON and see if the board will complete post. If it does great. If not, shutdown and remove ALL ram. Now pw ON with no ram and you should receive a beep code. If you do not receive a beep code, the board has failed.
