What the pic does not show is the copper smidge showing through the PCB. On the top of the PCB and the inside of the spreader there is a burnt discoloration that seems to be where a short happened. I'm assuming this did enough damage to the ram slots to make the mobo fry out. I did try using a 1gig stick from another computer and I was given the same symptoms. It would post but refused to boot or even load from DVD. I also loaded the bad ram into ther other comp and it threw up memory errors and blue screens. Sorry for not elaborating on this with my orginal post.
