Since you say, you have a new hard disk I am assuming you have not formatted it or there is an operation system on it. If that is the case, power on your laptop. As soon as you does this start pressing F2 (intermittently = press, then release) and keep on doing it till you get into the bios screen. Once you are there change the boot sequence to CD drive first (It will be on Harddisk at present) Once you have made the first boot device to CD drive, open the CD drive and put an operating system CD like XP, Vista or Windows 7. Save and exit from the bios screen. Restart the computer. It will say press any key to boot from CD drive. Press any key. The system will come to the operating system installation screen. Install the operating system. If in doubt get assistance in getting someone to install the operating system. Without the operating sytem or a bootable CD once the Bios hands it over to the system there is nothing to display and you do not see anything on the screen. It looks like that is your problem. Good luck.

I suggest you reinstall the windows 7 again. The installation was interrupted because the battery ran out of power, the result was a corrupted and incomplete installation of windows. And that is the main reason why you are just getting a blank screen.
