Will not power & lcd scren will not light

\015 I have a dell inspirion e1505 i recently repladed the motherboard and the hard drive. when i hit the power button the lights glow green and flash but nothing appears on the screen. after about 15 seconds of flashing it complete shuts off. what can this be?\015

Answers :

Several things. The system appears that is it not POSTING (The flashing Lock LEDs are a NO POST indication)\015\012
\015\012Try RAM modules one at a time, make sure they are inserted at a 30 degree angle till the contacts are all the way into the slot, then press down and lock into place, only the very top edge of the gold contacts should be visible.\015\012
\015\012If the system still doesn't post with all drives out, battery out and a single memory module, then either the replacement motherboard is bad, the processor is not installed correctly or damaged, or the RAM is damaged.\015\012
\015\012The processor has a zero insertion force socket that has a cam lock to secure the processor, http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1501/en/sm_en/cpu.htm#wp1084976\015\012Make sure the cam is unlocked when inserting processor then locked before installing the Heat sink
