:) :tazz:
So this is the story of my problems
1. THis started last month - my laptop shutup in the middle of working and just wont start afterwards. No matter what I tried. SO I opened it, and after that it started working.
2. By mistake I uncrimped the LCD flex cable and this made the LCD screen go all white. So i figured I screwed that up. SInce I was able to connect to an external monitor and able to see the laptop.

3. Today I got my flex cable and I changed tat, but I found out tht this time the laptop wont even start. When I connect the power cable, or the battery, the light doesnot come on. What do you think might be the problem?

for info, my laptop is HP ZE4540US . What should I be checking? What should I do? ANy help is appreciated. Thanx.
