Found that the captive screw that grounds the display cable is missing and the wire end is broken off. Could this cause the computer to power on for a few seconds and then turn itself off?

Can you refer from this Dell link what particular screw and wire could be broken? There are quite many causes that makes a laptop turn on then off.

Did you rectify the problem already by replacing the screw repairing the broken wire? I don't understand why these pieces are not present in the first place. What could have led you to the issue of notebook not powering on/off?
