Peter Czechowski, what are the last three digits of your serial number? This will help to identify your MBP.

Double check all your connections... if you have a loose ribbon cable or \ connector it would cause the non-start issue. You might try How to switch it on without the power button? to eliminate the logic board as the cause.

i really don't understand where he is talking about i've looked on youtube but the place they're talking about doesn't exist on my laptop. either way i don't think its my keyboard otherwise there wouldn't be a dim light on my carve cable surely? i still can't see it being the logic board either considering it was after a hard drive update it didn't just happen out of no where
