So I took it apart to basically right before I had direct access to the motherboard. I was just trying to see where the jack connected to so I'd know when I got the replacement jack. So I plugged all the components back in, put it all back together, and put the battery (it had a charge) and it doesn't start up. No signs of life at all. No lights, fans, nothing.
I tried two different batteries, but still nothing. I'd normally think maybe the board fried, except I didn't really do anything to the board. Like for the most part it was just pulling out a ribbon cable and than later reconnecting it. That was really the extent of it.
The only thing I messed with was the power jack. So I'm wondering what's going on? Maybe someone can throw alittle advice my way.
you think this problem will dissipate when I replace the jack? I'm thinking maybe there's a connection between me messing with the jack and it not turning on. Like maybe the jack and battery are in series or something. idk.
Anybody else's take would be appreciated.
