there i was, my first motherboard replacement on a inspiron 1764 laptop, rolling through all 2,326 assorted screws, unplugging and replugging in this job and felt like a pro. i didn't even have any extra screws at the end! i hit the power button, and instead of those satisfying beeps from the motherboard on it's way to boot, the power light slowly blinks at me...mockingly. that's it. no bad smells, just a blinking power light.
i'm about to redo things from screw #1, but can anyone give me an idea of which step or connection i didn't do correctly?
