    You may have knocked the video card loose when replacing the HDD.
    Make sure it's firmly in the slot.

    If the PC has a built-in video chip, then make sure all the cables and memory are firmly plugged in.

    When you turn it on, does the PC sound like it's turning on? (fans spinning, beeps, etc.)
