Dell Latitude D520 won't power up after DIM A reseat

\015 I've been working on a Dell Latitude D520 that my adult daughter came close to hosing the hard drive on. Since we got her a new laptop for school, I've inherited it. I spent the last day fixing the hard drive problems (was working well) and I also upgraded the RAM by installing two 2G DDR2 memory chips. I then noticed that the laptop was only recognizing 2G of RAM. So I powered it down and reseated both chipsets. I did the DIM B first, then went to the DIM A. I followed SOP on chipset replacement, then when I went to do DIM A I removed the keyboard and reseated the chip. When I pout things back together I powered up and got nothing save for the Cap Lock and Keyboard Lock lights flashing (Num Lock stays on) for about 30 seconds and then it shuts off again. I repeated the process three times to no avail. Any ideas?\015
