Hi guys and gals. New here, this is my first post. Hoping to salvage my stupidity. So here's what happened:
The screen to my laptop quit working so I decided to remove the screen, attach an external, and use it like a desktop. The screen came off fine and I was left with a wire harness that went to the screen and camera, plus a separate wire that went to the antenna. The computer worked fine like this, but I was annoyed with the extra wires hanging loose and I decided to cut off the harness...STUPID...I know, but I figured it wouldn't matter since I'm not using the screen or camera. Soon as I cut it, the computer went dead.
SO is there any salvaging it? I don't think that re-attaching the harness is an option...there's about 30 wires and some are the same color. Could it possibly just need a ground...maybe...hopefully?
Pretty sure I bricked it, but worth asking to make sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Oh, and the computer is a Toshiba laptop. Can't read anything more on the label.
