No signs of life after upgrading ram and HD

I upgraded my intel solo mini with ram and a new hard drive. When I put it all together, but alas there was no reboot - no sound or video.
The ribbon did come out of the socket from what looks like the optical drive during reassembly, but I was able to put back in with some effort.

any suggestions?

If you disconnected it, did you remember to reconnect the cable that goes from the power button to the logic board?
