HI there JoeyZhang,Sounds like your graphics card, monitor (LCD screen), or worse - the CPU has been damaged as well. Are you sure that the refurbished unit that you bought is 100% working? Can you hear any beeps when turning on? Try connecting the laptop to external monitor/TV and see if anything happens ? Have you replaced the CPU as well as the motherboard? It will be extremely hard for anyone to give you specific advice but from what you said - I would just take it to a specialist if the short troubleshooting I gave you doesn't work (if trying another monitor doesn't work) Hopefully it's just a bad connection somewhere (and water can cause that), but expect the worst.Hope your problem will be solved soon, Citizen_WD
Thanks for the reply.
My CPU was attached to the motherboard, I bought both the CPU and Mobo completely refurbished.
Lenovo Y50-70 Laptop Motherboard w/ Intel i7-4700HQ 2.4GHz CPU
There are no beeps at all. Only the LEDs indicating it is on lights up as well as the LEDs indicating it is charging.
Another monitor didn't seem to do the trick, although I do agree that it is most likely a bad connection somewhere.
Just having difficulty narrowing it down to where ...

I remember seeing a video where a bad keyboard kept the computer from booting. The poster disconnected the keyboard from the motherboard and it proceeded to boot. I have also seen a bad CMOS battery keeping a laptop from booting. I would pull the RAM modules if these were the original and see if you get a post beep. Can't say if these are your issues. Just throwing out some thoughts.
Edit: Here is the service manual for the Y50 if you do not have it.

Greatly appreciated, will test keyboard and separate components tomorrow!
Update: Dropped it off at a technician's place, will be giving me a free diagnostic
