I bet someone else will come up with a better solution, but I would suggest taking it to geeksquad, they can at least diagnose the problem for $100.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

Hi Karroog and welcome to bleeping computer.
It would help to know what Asus motherboard you are using, most Asus boards will beep once after a successful POST, so the absence of this beep indicates that one of the items in the POST failed.
As for the RAM, the pins on the module may have been burnt if there was any arcing between the socket and the pins of the module. Carefully examine the socket for arc marks, and do the same for the module. If you have a ink pen with an eraser use it to clean the pins on the module. If there aren't any arc marks you might get away with this, but with the description of smoke I wouldn't hold my breath.
Do you have more than one RAM module, and how many expansion slot do you have, and are you running in dual channel?
