Why is the machine beeping once after changing RAM?


Hi everyone,

I hope you're all doing great. Here's my problem :

'''The situation :'''

I tried to change many components in my mac mini a1283 to boost its performance. I followed the guides to install those followings:

Hard drive : intel ssd 520 series 120GB

RAM : 2x 204-pin SODIMM ¤ DDR3 1066MHz CL7 (2 x 4GB, product from Corsair )

Unfortunately as i couldn't follow the instructions but on my smartphone i didn't notice the part where it said not to touch the thermal cable (now it's not broken but apart of the circuit, i'll be able to fix it).

'''The results for now''':

Now the computer won't turn on, i just have the lights on the device and a beep that repeat itself. So I looked on the internet and found it meant that there was no RAM (but the new RAM is inside). Thinking that 8GB was too much i tried to put the old ones again (with the old ATA hard-drive too), still the same result. Nothing on the screen just the one beep  that repeat itself. Despite the old RAM that were working before the manipulation, there's just nothing at all for the mac.

What can I do?
