    Did you try resetting PRAM.

    And what do you mean by saying it won't work? Does a hard drive spin up and nothing shows up or is it just silence after you press power button?

    I would open it back up, and make sure EVERYTHING is plugged in tightly. If all else fails, put back in the old HD and have your local Mac Technician do it for you.
