Same RAM removed & replaced now not working

I took out one RAM from the slot, being nosey, put the original RAM back in. Now my iMac starts but won't get to the chime stage and has a black screen. I have no keyboard control either as it doesn't reach that point. It's a 27" iMac i5 mid-2010. Help please.

Is this a good question?

I have pushed them both in until they clicked. Seems like the iMac isn't seeing one. When I was turning it off it came up with a box showing the four slots but only one was showing the RAM in it's slot. Can RAM get damaged by just doing this?

I suspect you put the modules into the wrong slots. There are four slots Bank 0 and Bank 1 (Left & Right). You do need to finish the bank (slot on the left and right on either the top or bottom bank).

And yes you can damage the modules with static electricity so be careful!
