Toshiba Laptop Won't Boot

I have a 16 month old Toshiba Notebook NB525-00H. I replaced the original 1GB memory card with a Crucial 2GB memory upgrade (2GB 204-PIN DDR3 SODIMMPC3-10600 CL3). I was very careful not to touch the surface of the memory card. It went in perfectly with no problem as per instructions.
When I tried to boot it, the power light came on, but the drive light comes on for only a second then goes out. I can hear the fan continuing to run but nothing appears on the screen. There's no effect if I try to use any F key when attempting a startup.
If I reinsert the original 1GB memory card, the same thing happens. There's no debris in the connection for the memory card.
Both the notebook and the memory card are out of warranty.How can I get it running again?
