Hey everyone, I am hoping that this is in the correct spot. I was recently working on a HP Pavilion ZD7000 and I took the screws out of the bottom of the laptop and I could hear something moving around in the laptop, like a screw or something. So I started to take the top apart and for some reason I decided to try the computer just to make sure it was working and it turned on and the screen had lines going through it, making it hard to read anything. So I then unplugged it to see what the problem was, and I never found one, I figured it was a fluke.
I then began taking the rest of the parts of, and two square things with a rounded top and a spring fell out of the laptop and some metal bracket looking thing fell out as well. Now, when I try to turn the laptop on, the fans, hard drive, CD-Drive, all of the main components are working and running but the laptop screen stays black and does not even look like it is working. So, I tried to plug an external monitor into the laptop and it still wasn't working, so I tried the FN + F4 (switch to external monitor) and that still didn't work. I am just wondering what the problem is or what it could potentially be. The only thing I touched for the monitor was the cable that plugs the monitor into the motherboard and that seems like it is fine, so I don't get it.
I have uploaded some pictures of the part that fell out of the laptop to my skydrive account as well as some other pictures of the laptops internals, any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated, I am running out of time and I have to get this completed quickly! The older laptops seem to be put together a lot harder than they are now adays!
