    Could you please post more info about your system?
    Info about the motherboard, CPU, RAM, Video Card, and PSU will help.
    This happened because you removed the RAM.

    It could the CPU fan. Make sure that it is connected properly, and that it isn't clogged with dust.
    Make sure that all cables are connected properly, especially the cables connecting the motherboard to the PSU(2 cables usually).
    After you have done this, turn on your PC, and check if the fan(s) turn on.
    Also, the motherboard might be touching the case (not where the screws are), causing it to short-circuit.
