Do you have a monitor that you can connect to the laptop? It is possible that even though you were careful during the dissasembly / reassembly of your laptop that something related to the display could have been disconneted or pulled up from the motherboard. If you connect a monitor and you can see the display that would all but confirm what I said. If that is the case I suggest taking it to a good computer repair shop and having them diagnose the problem and reparing it if possible.

Yup! I connected it to a monitor (I tried both the HDMI and the VGA ports) and nothing. Same thing.
I have to believe it isn't booting, because it doesn't beep or no cursor...

So tonight I tried again. Putting another RAM stick in there and I made sure everything was reconnected correctly. Does anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this?
Although it doesn't beep or anything (only a blue light on) I noticed tonight that the fan will come on for a second...so it is doing something...it's just not booting up I feel like.

Ok... Put the original memory stick back in there.. I hope you remember which one it was and do a google search for acer black screen of death, There are youtube videos and tutorials all over. You probably freaked out your bios changing the memory like that which probably required different voltages and now you have to ' recover ' and update your bios. I would follow the steps on the acer website for recovering your bios using a thumbdrive and updated bios.

I was excited by what you said (the first real solution I've gotten so far) and so I went on the Acer website to download the BIOS but it was only an EXE file. I think contacted ACER support to find out where I could get the files to flash the BIOS and they said Windows 8 only has an EXE file and the only way to fix the bios was to send it in for service?? Argh. This is definitely my last Acer.
Do I have any options left, or am I pretty much screwed?

Does anyone know what to do when you have a corrupt BIOS and Acer says the Windows 8 BIOS file is only an EXE and there is no flash?

You can try going to the Acer site and downloading the current BIOS. You could also try using a stick to download the current version of the BIOS for your system and thend booting from the stick.
