I have just replaced the screen of a Toshiba Satellite laptop (A665). The previous screen had been broken when someone stepped on the top of the laptop. Structurally, though, the laptop was just fine. The broken screen lit up in senseless brilliance.

After I replaced the screen the laptop will not power up. I immediately thought it could be: 1) cables came unplugged when I remounted the panel 2) faulty new screen 3) motherboard.

I've really been hoping against motherboard. And something strange is happening that makes me think it might not be the whole board.

The laptop powers on for five seconds, fans blaring and everything, and then shuts off. It almost reminds me of when my Xbox red-ringed and would no longer even start up (finally forcing me to repair it). It does this with the new screen, the old screen, and no screen at all. There doesn't seem to be any difference.

In my experience, when a motherboard goes there's no getting it to turn back on. Which is what confuses me. I'm at a loss here, aside from the thought that it might be the screen cable, and I can't really afford to have a professional take a look at it (as I've already spent money on the new screen).

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check if it gives a display on an external monitor.
