hardware failure: bought a new hard drive, but when it is connected to the power supply, it will not start

I bought a new 1TB barracuda hard drive, plugged it in and started it. But on the second boot with my solid state drive connected, the computer will not boot either. I checked the solid state on another computer and it still works. Now it will not start the only activity that I get is that a fan starts to turn slightly.

Am I just me connecting things wrong?
