    Your ram may have gone bad. May have to buy another stick of ram. I bought a new stick of ram once, when I installed it, it was not recognized and the red led lit up. Took it back to the dealer and they confirmed the ram was bad and have me a new stick.

    Reseat your bad ram before buying a new one just to make sure though.
