Suggesions?

Firstly, got larger hard drive. Tried to install it, used norton ghost, everything seemed fine. Then, noticed that HD only showed 8g instead of 40. Tried: fdisk, fat32, and lba mode, still nothing. But the icing on the cake is that after checking the HD and putting it back, "poof". I turned the computer on and nothing happened. I mean, they say that things occur in threes, well whats going to happen next.
Anyway, when I turn it on I get: Black screen with a green light, the HD spins for about 3 to 4 seconds then stops, nothing after that.
I'm hoping that my MB didn't go out. Please give me any suggestions on how to get it going again

Yeah, as far as the HD bios problem, not that big of a problem.

Tried many things when computer blacked-out:
- took out old HD and reconnected the old one, still nothing
- unpluged everything and reconnected, still nothing

Didn't touch anything but the HD, didn't hear any zaps or clicks, nothing. Might try to see if MB is secure?
