I am repairing a Toshiba Satellite C655-S5068 that was dropped. The screen was obviously in need of replacement, so I ordered and installed a new screen. I also put in a new HDD. The laptop turns on but will not boot. It generally does not go any further than the Toshiba screen before it shuts down. One time I got it to go as far as to start Windows Repair, but then it froze and I was forced to reboot. I am trying to explore any and all other options before calling it a bad board....any ideas?

Check the processor and memory, make sure they haven't been dislodged at all.

SneakyCyber idea is great. If that doesnt work I would be concerned about the motherboard being damaged or perhaps one of the internal metal shields grounding to the motherboard.

As long as we are trouble shooting possibilities how far did you get the laptop disassembled?
