Replaced the screen myself to save money. Took forever to reattach all the cables and now it won't turn on. I unplugged 2 cables: the power cable and the cable nearest the mouse to remove the keyboard. I know I put those two back in place, but won't turn on with the battery or power cord. What else could be the issue?

Disassemble and double check your work, did you get the power button cable re-attached properly? – Moab Jan 9 '12 at 1:47
I recently tore apart an old HP laptop to quiet a noisy fan. There were so many connections that when I got it back together the fan didn't run at all. Second disassembly located the connection I failed to make. It's tedious, but I suggest you do it again. Take your time and read the maintenance manual at each step. – uSlackr Jan 9 '12 at 13:57
@techie007 - I applaud Tonya's willingness to dig in and give it a try. Cheer up. – uSlackr Jan 9 '12 at 13:59
