Asus laptop will not start even tho the power led is on this started after i changed the hard drive. Help no money to send it for repair and warranty is out
 
Are you sure it is not turning on and that it isn't just the display? Since you said you changed the HDD you could have knocked something loose, or not inserted the drive completely. I would check that first. Then if you get lights and some sounds from inside, but no display, try the following.

1. Turn the laptop off (not sleep or hibernate but off).
2. Connect an external monitor to the laptop.
3. Turn on the external monitor.
4. Turn on the laptop.

NOTE: You may have to press an "external monitor" button. Could be the f4 button or a button with two monitors on it, for the external monitor to work.

If you can see fine on the external monitor, then your attached display, or the ribbon cable that connects it, are your problem.

If you can't see on the external monitor at all, or the problem occurs on the external monitor as well, then it is probably the graphics card/GPU that is the problem, which may require the motherboard be replaced.
