    Hello... I'm hoping someone can help me out on this...

    I replaced the LCD for the dell laptop since it was stepped on an broken. The computer worked perfectly before installing the new screen, except for the fact that you could only see on half the screen and the other half was shattered.

    I bought the screen off of ebay using a part number and installed it. Now the united doesn't even power up. Nothing, completely dead. It was suggested that the motherboard fried and perhaps it was the wrong part... however it never turned on at all since. Not for a second or anything. Took it to another guy and he said the keyboard isn't hitting the power button and there should be a way to turn it on without the keyboard. Perhaps under the wifi? I can't find the switch, though it looks to me like its just on the keyboard. If so, is it possible that it's just the keyboard that was busted? I did remove it because I thought it was necessary though it turned out not to be.

    Any help would be really great, as it appears as though I broke my bosses relatively new laptop. Thanks in advance.

    Dana :eek:

    Let's try the simplest thing first - are you sure you reconnected the keyboard when you reassembled the laptop? There is a small connector with a cable.

    Yes, the keyboard was connected for sure and I've also checked the plug one or twice afterwards. Nothing...
