Boot disk failure after installing new RAM?

I installed a new 1G RAM to an XP which had 516MB. I afterwards started my computer and got a boot disk failure. I had gone into the BIOS and it read the 1G card. Thinking it might not be compatible; I removed it again and only left in the original RAM. I received the boot disk failure again.
I did a SMART short self-test. It failed at 7 (completed with the read element of test failed).
Is there something I can do to fix this? Do I really have to replace the hard drive? How could I have damaged the HD by inserting new ram?
