My first post in a little while! I basically have a Samsung NP350V5C-A06UK and the screen broke a while ago which was a huge pain. I then bought a new screen which I had successfully replaced and was working. I was then finishing up and clipping the plastic casing back, (the one around the monitor). The corners clipped back totally fine and so did the top. As I tried to clip the bottom-middle one back into place, I put a little too much pressure onto the wire behind it. All of a sudden, the laptop switched off and white smoke started billowing out of the machine. After that, my machine would not switch on, and has not done so since.
So, my question is:
1. Do I replace the wire behind the monitor?
2. Have I damaged the entire machine?
3. Should I throw this thing away?
