Make sure whatever RAM is installed is properly seated. Also, make sure the original HDD is installed and is fully pushed in. If nothing happens then you shorted something out.

However, the BIOS might need to be reset, but to be honest I've never located a CMOS Battery on a laptop, even the two or three I've disassembled.

Well like mentioned above make sure RAM seated properly and inserted, you need RAM in the system in order to boot.

Is this a new product?
