MacBook Not Turning On...

So, my Macbook is now 4 years old and hanging together by a thread...
Here's the problem-
The MB wont run with a battery in it. After a trip to the genius bar I'm told its either the logic board ($$$!!!) or the battery connector thats the problem.
I've just ordered a new battery connector off ebay (gotta give it a try...) but before I could do that, I had to open my MB up and check whether the battery connector was the gapped type (part no. 922-8129) or no gaps (part no. 922-7578). Its the latter.
So, after putting the connector back in until my new one arrives, I put the machine back together. Now, it wont turn back on. Here's what happens on startup-
After pressing the power button (remember, no battery connected, just the charger) I get the sound of the optical drive sounding the way it usually does except it seems to stop making its usual noise as if its caught on something, then it retries a few times then... nothing. I can hear the HD and fan working and the white light on the front of the computer comes on bright (as it would it the computer was on and not sleeping). Nothing happens with the screen at all, it doesn't light up at all. Also no Apple startup sound...
Thanks in advance...
