When you removed the topcase did you remove the power supply and battery? the topcase replacement is pretty straight forward and I don't see how you would fry your board. Do u hear the start up chime when u boot? If u see the light that means there's life there, do you hear the optical drive on start up?
I would take the topcase back off and make sure that the data cable that goes from the display to the logic board is properly seated, This connector is tricky and you have to make sure you hear the "click" when you re-attach, that's if you took it off in the first place, cause it's not necessary for topcase replacementreplacement.

Step 16 of this guide shows which cable I'm referring to: http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repair/Installing-MacBook-Core-Duo-Hinges/309/6
