A720 Won't Boot; SSD Replacement Help

I have an A720 IdeaCentre that was taking a long time to boot, then stopped booting all together. I still get power, the fan runs, but nothing appears on the screen.

 

To remedy this, I tried replacing the Samsung HD with a Crucial MX200 500GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5". I did a one-for-one swap of the two parts, putting the new SSD and what I think is the spacer into the old carrier (metal with holes). I also put the Samsung's rubber bumpers onto the new drive and spacer. Same result: powers on, no boot. I haven't even been able to install Windows.

 

Have I done something wrong (wrong part, forgot a step)? Or does this point to a different issue? If I can provide more info, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

If you tried a new hard drive, the issue might be in the BIOS. Reset all settings to default, clear the residue CMOS battery.
