After upgrading my memory I am not getting any power from the PC.

Question

I have upgraded the memory from a 32mb dimm chip to two-64ram chips. Have done this many times. But now I am not getting any power from the PC, the fan will not kick on or the switch. What could have happened? Is there a way to test the power supply box and if so how?

Try removing the memory chip and replacing it with the old one Sometimes if you installed memory that is not compatible with your motherboards specification they tend to burn out and not allow anything to startup Memory is the most important components besides a hard drive and cpu in your computer

After following these instrtuctions and your computer still does not start up Check the voltage switch on the back of your power supply It could be that it was lodge out of place during a boot up of your computer.

Worst case scenario you would have to replace your power supply.
