If the hard drive currently works properly as a secondary drive in a different system (files can be seen and accessed), it's not the drive.
...and vice versa.
Even if the hard drive is dead...the system should boot or you ought to at least be able to go to the BIOS or get some onscreen error message.
My favorite suspects in such cases...start with PSU or video card/chip....but that's just my approach.

Hi, I have a few suggestions that might help you.
There is a possibility that something became unplugged when you removed and returned the harddrive to it's drive bay. check all power wires including the one coming from the PSU to the main board.
Make sure none of the riser cards have eased their way up out of their expansion slots.
Make sure the rear power switch located on the PSU is set to on.
Make sure your monitor's video cable is properly pluged into the video port.
Make sure wires are not preventing any fans from spinning.
Try those and if all fails post back and let us know.
Best regards and good luck.

Even if you had a hardware problem, you would still be able to at least boot to the CMOS chip's boot screen, it would then halt from that screen.
When you power up the computer, is there any indication that power is getting to any of the hardware?
Does the fans spin?
Does the optical drives lights light up?
If those answers are No, then you have a PSU issue.
If it is Yes, then the problem has to do with the motherboard and something that is not correct, such as the power connector is not fully connected.
Does your processor fan spin? These are usually powered directly from the motherboard's power circuits.
If answer is No, then your power connector to motherboard is not connected properly.
