As one of a more drastic step, you could try resetting your bios by removing the cmos battery (while everything is unplugged), or setting the clear cmos jumper (you will want to refer to your mainboard's manual on how to correctly do this).
This will reset all your Bios settings to the default, clearing any misconfiguration a hardware exchange could cause. Although unlikely, that could help.

Also, inspecting the port you use to plug the adapter in and checking it for dust or other stuff might help.

You can also try to power on your machine without any RAM inserted. In this case, the motherboard must emit warning sounds if it works correctly (you may also refer to your mainboards manual on how it will react to this situation). This way you can make sure if your mainboard even passes it's startup checks.
