Specs: Windows7, I5/8mgs
Built my own computer with a gigabyte motherboard a 1t hd a rw DVD a 750w power supply and 8mb ram. This worked until recently I hooked up a Samsung blu-ray and an additional 8megs of RAM. The computer when first tried it booted to the window7 login. But the keyboard wouldnt work. Turned off computer and the next morning it would cycle as if there were a short. Hope someone might have a suggestion. I tried putting back in the original 8 Meg's. But it still did not work

Then remove the blu-ray.

Did you follow all esd precautions?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

electrostatic discharge.
Grounding yourself on a water faucet or switchplate screw will prevent damage to your memory and other sensitive components before touching or opening the case. Also making sure the system is unplugged before opening the case is important.
Also as as Jefro mentioned, return it to exactly the way it was by also removing the blu-ray drive and see if that matters.
Then check that you have not pinched any wires or rubbed the insulation off them during the install and moving things out of your way (a power or signal wire grounding on the case could cause your problem if it got in the wrong place when inserting or securing the drive or pulling a short wire to make it fit or move it out of the way). Check that wires tucked behind things in your case to look neater when you built it may now be cut by a sharp edge of the metal of the case.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
