Blinking light but no boot

본문:

I just
 
Installed a iMac Intel 20" EMC 2105 and 2118 Hard Drive Replacement
 
I followed this sites how-to, but didn't get the heat sensor attached very well to the new hard disk (I didn't know if i should reuse the glue it had, use new glue, what kind of glue, etc...) Now, after everything is reassembled, when I try to power on the hard disk/fans rev for 1 second and turn off, and then the light on the front panel blinks continuously and nothing else happens. No beeps, no fans, no display flicker...
 
Someone suggests here:

that the light could indicate bad ram, which is possible in this case, but I wonder if it is the thermal switch somehow? I would rather not spend the money to replace the ram if this computer is a loss anyway (bad logic board?)
 
Any suggestions? Thank you for reading...
 
 
 
edit: I swapped the ram and left one out, now it does the same as before except a fan turns on somewhere...
