    The hard drive may be bad

    depending on the type of gpu it may be a heat problem, a memory problem or a gpu problem. computers generally wont post if there is no, or bad memory installed. the harddrive will not cause it not go to into post, but the gpu will. you should post more info on what type of hardware you have in your computer.
