I guess you destroyed something. You should always remove main battery and power pack before opening the notebook.
You could remove the RAM again (after removing the battery) and start the notebook. If it's still alive, the LEDs should flash in a certain pattern indicating that no RAM was found.

You might also try the "hardware reset" (or "act of desperation" as I like to call it):
Remove main battery and power pack, then hold the power button for 15 seconds and see if something works afterwards.

Hi, Thanks for the reply. ive tried all those things and still got no joy.
If the laptop can't be fixed, do i lose all my stuff on the hard-drive?

No, I don't think that the HDD is damaged. You can remove it from the notebook and attach it to an external adapter or in an external HDD case. Then you can access it from another computer.
