Sounds like your hard drive has failed. You can hook it up to a USB Universal Adapter or external enclosure to see if it can be recovered. You will need a new hard drive. This has nothing to do with the RAM. You can also try booting up from your original system installation DVD. Go to the second page pull down menu and go to Disk Utilities and see if it can be repaired.
