memory card installation

Specs: Windows Vista
I just installed new memory card in my Compaq Presario SR1630NX, but now the green light on the back of the tower keeps flashing, and the computer won't power up. What now?

No, Best Buy didn't have the exact match for the ones already in the computer, but it was the same type, DDR2 PC 3200 I think? I went online to make sure I was getting the correct one before I went to the store to buy it.

Then try each stick separartely to make sure both work, but some systems are very picky and will not work with different brands of memory.

I tried taking the new one out and using just the two original ones that came in it, but got the same problem. Then, I tried it with just the new one in alone. Nothing worked. Could it be the power supply was blown?
