Did you check the type of the memory card the motherboard of your computer would support? It may be a DDR1 or DDR2 and also check how much memory your motherboard can hold. You disconnect the memory card and check to see if the computer would turn on.

Your BIOS should automatically detect your new RAM when your computer starts, try starting your computer after removing your old RAM module, if it starts, you need to update your BIOS to use 4GB. If it doesn't start, you either have a faulty RAM module or a faulty connector on your motherboard. Insert the new RAM module into the slot the old RAM module was in, if your computer still refuses to start, you have a faulty RAM module which should be returned, if it does start, it's the connector on the motherboard, and only replacing the entire board will fix the problem. However, it's worth noting that your motherboard will only support RAM modules of 2GB or less, the above was written with the assumption you're adding an additional 2GB module to your Dell computer.
Check for any lights. Usually a computer would have a flea light on the motherboard as soon as you plug it in. If it doesn't have a flea light, start with the power supply. Swap the power cord of the monitor with the power supply of your desktop. If it still would not show power, try replacing the power supply. Worse case, you may need to replace the motherboard of your computer which would cost a lot.

Computer has three short beeps as it starts? computer RAM (memory) related issue.
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
This looks like a bad cable connection. Try using a new cable for the connection between the computer and monitor. If that does not work test you computer on another monitor to make sure you are getting signal output from the video card.Also check the monitor on another computer.This is to check and make sure the monitor is working properly.You can also try using a add on video card in the computer to see if you can use the monitor this way.If you still are having problems.

Memory is Hard and you can destroy your computer if it isn't done properly because of many reasons. I would suggest that you remove the Memory and see if it works again but I must warn you that if you enter your computer without being a technician you may do further harm to your computer. If it works great but if not I will go through the steps of troubleshooting with you.
