Wife's 2 year old X54C Pentium B960 2.2 ghz? (missing specs) 4GB onboard memory upgraded to 8 GB few months before problem 320 gb drive


Keyboard was betting beat up, ordered a new one.  Powered it down, pulled battery.  Removed old keyboard did take extra force and..  new keyboard has the wrong ribbon swore then put the old keyboard back on.  Immediately Afterward the computer refused to start.  Only the battery LED comes on when you plug in the charger. PUsh power button, nothing happens..


Tried tricks like holding the power button down 10 sec to 1 min with the battery out, leaving battery out for days and nothing

Sounds like your keyboard removal was the straw that broke the computer. Hope you have returned the keyboard for a refund, if possible, or the correct one if not.

If you are going to try to bring the old one back to life carefully recheck all of the connections. Assume that you are using an anti-static surface an connection so that no sparks fly as you check things out.

Keep us posted
