That power supply is probably dead. try your motherboard witha known-to-be-good power supply to determine if your system has survived. IN my experience the failrate for antec sp450 watt psu is close to 40% over 4 years (300 pc:s at university), so there is a high probability that your psu is unrecoverable.
If the memory is good (test it on another comp. ) it may be possible that the motherboard does not support that type of memory (happens !! ), or it supports that quantity of memory only on one slot . U must get the motherboard;s manual and read there if they are any particularities..... (sometimes , very rarely, there are BIOS settings ...that may interfere ... )
get into the bios of your computer. (look it up on the internet if you don't know how) search around, there should be a setting in there for onboard graphics. most likely in a "devices" or "advanced devices". this is just off memory but keep searching and don't play around with other settings. ^^
