Good evening,

Recently I replaced the hard drive o. My laptop, and then restored it to factory defaults. This went over smoothly overnight, I woke up the next morning, turned off the laptop and took it to work. On lunch, I turned it on, and the screen was black.

I tried to reseat the ram, test the ram, power cycle, run on battery only , run on plug on plug only, and tried multiple hard drives. Nothing worked.

When I turn it on, I get the windows start up noise, and everything else is working fine. It will project on a separate monitor.

In my curiosity, I discovered this model has issues with the connector behind the screen, so I took it apart, repeated it, nothing happened, I then unplugged it and replugged it in.

This is where it went from bad to worse. Apparently I removed the cord, forgot to remove the battery, so there was a spark on contact, I quickly removed said battery. I repeated the connector but I fear the damage may already be done. Although, the spark was on the surrounding metal casting and not the connectors themselves, that gives me hope.


What should I do to further optest?


When/if I replace the monitor, what tests should I do if it still does not work?


Thank you all for your time!!

Update, I got the screen to turn on, albeit extremely dim. After reboot, it is now back to black

Update, I dissembled the laptop, repeated every cord I could find, and no change. Also, this model does NOT have an inverter.
