May be you disturbed something else when plugging in the CD drive, check all connections or even try unplugging again and see if it will boot.

i just have done that, unplugged everything and re-plugged it in quadruple checked that everything is in...

Take the ram out that you installed and try again,you did ground yourself before going inside dident you?Mind you,i think it should start without the ram.

I hope you did not connect it with the Power on as you may have fried the MOBO
