OK, we now have a bit more to go on... Does your MBP start at all? Can you start it up when booting from your Snow Leopard DVD? Also, does it fail to boot all the time from the new hard drive or is it intermittent?

The reason for the above questions is that the SATA ribbon cable which goes from the hard drive connector to the logic board is suspect here. It's quite common for that cable to fail in older MacBooks and MacBook Pro machines. Let us know.
